Running Wild Set to Release Second Tribute Album

A second tribute album to the German metal band Running Wild, which follows the first tribute album, is in the works, according to the webmaster of their official website. "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 new and currently untitled tribute will contain songs from "The Rivalry" (1998), "Victory" (2000), "The Brotherhood" (2002) and "Rogues En Vogue" (2005). It will be released in fall of this year with graphic art done by Costin Chioreanu, who has worked for bands like Absu, Centinex, Demonical, Negura Bunget, Thunderstorm, and more. One of the first confirmed bands for the new tribute is Polish heavy metal band Crystal Viper, who will record their own version of "Libertalia." Other confirmed bands are Magica, Orden Ogan, Satanochio, Skiltron, and Thunderstorm.
