:D :D :D

German power metallers RUNNING WILD have reformed and will release their new album, "Shadowmaker", in April 2012 via SPV/Steamhammer.

RUNNING WILD played what was billed as its "farewell" show at the 2009 edition of Wacken Open Air festival, which was held July 30 - August 1, 2009 in Wacken, Germany. The band's July 30, 2009 "best-of" performance was filmed and recorded for a DVD and CD, "The Final Jolly Roger", which came out this past June via Golden Core/ZYX.

Stated RUNNING WILD mainman Rolf "Rock 'N' Rolf" Kasparek: "My comments in spring 2009 about the demise of RUNNING WILD were absolutely serious at the time. I really needed time out and, to be honest, couldn't imagine even in January 2011 that I would ever feel like recording a new album again. But when I had the inspiration for a best-of album, to which I wanted to contribute four new numbers, I rediscovered how much I enjoy composing. From then on it was only a small step to record a full new studio album."

Kasparek wrote ten new tracks for "Shadowmaker", including the midtempo opener "Piece Of The Action", the uptempo number "Shadowmaker" ("roughly the same pace as 'Angel Of Mercy'," says Kasparek) and the monumental eight-minute song "Dracula", based on Bram Stoker's novel and the Christopher Lee movies.

"To me, 'Shadowmaker' is a very special album because there was no pressure, timewise or otherwise," says Kasparek. "I feel it's clearly audible that this relaxed attitude helped me to write one of the strongest RUNNING WILD recordings of all time."

Looks like for every death, a new life is (re)born! I am incredibly happy to see that Rolf is at it again!
