RUNNING WILD To Release Rapid Foray August 26th via SPV/Steamhammer!

Running_Wild_Rapid_ForayRunning Wild will release their captivating new studio album on August 26th via Steamhammer/SPV. German metallers have announced the title and release date of their latest album: Rapid Foray will be available from physical and digital retailers from August 26, 2016 as a box set, on Digipak CD, double vinyl LP and for digital download.

Rolf Kasparek apologises for the long delay: “Due to my broken shoulder, I was totally or at least partly incapacitated for more than twelve months from spring 2014, something that repeatedly delayed work on the new material.

After that I had to prepare intensively for our show in Wacken, which was also very time-consuming. Now I’m all the more pleased to be able to present an exceptionally strong new recording to all Running Wild fans.”

The major parts of today’s “Satanistic bands” (like Behemoth, Deicide, Venom etc) have taken inspiration from COVEN. Furthermore, not known by many is the fact that Jinx Dawson was the first ever to use the “sign of the horns” on stage, starting in early 1968.
