RUNNING WILD: New Tribute Album In The Works

Jens Pohl, the webmaster for German metal legends RUNNING WILD, has issued the following update:

"It's been already almost four years since 'The Revivalry - A Tribute To Running Wild' hit the light. Soon after that, its success began to grow progressively and it significantly led to the idea that a tribute album brought to a different level should come out, especially by bringing cover songs from the newer albums by RUNNING WILD. And this time it is going to be like this!

"The second, yet-untitled tribute album will contain exclusively cover songs from 'The Rivalry' [1998], 'Victory' [2000], 'The Brotherhood' [2002] and 'Rogues En Vogue' [2005] and is scheduled to be released tentatively in fall this year. The artwork will be done by Romanian graphic artist Costin Chioreanu, who worked for bands like ABSU, CENTINEX, DEMONICAL, NEGURA BUNGET, THUNDERSTORM and many others.

"We are proud to announce already the first bands, who will definitely be part of this album:

* CRYSTAL VIPER (Poland)
* ORDEN OGAN (Germany)
* SKILTRON (Argentina)
* THUNDERSTORM (Romania)

"More bands and the songs they are about to cover will be announced soon.

"If you feel that your band needs to participate here as well, please feel free to apply. The deadline for any contribution is set to August 15, 2009.

"For further information, write to jens[at]running-wild.net."

RUNNING WILD released a "best of" compilation, entitled "Best of Adrian", in November 2006 via G.U.N. Records. The set includes selections covering the previous nine years of the band's recording history (while they've been signed to the G.U.N. label).

RUNNING WILD's last collection of new material, "Rogues En Vogue" (2005), entered the German album charts at position No. 39. The CD was produced by RUNNING WILD mainman Rolf "Rock'n'Rolf" Kasparek and features the lineup of Kasparek (vocals, all guitars), Peter Pichl (bass) and Matthias Liebetruth (drums).
