Shadowmaker by Running Wild
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Steamhammer
These once-bloodthirsty Germans -- or the two guys plus apparent drum machine now using their name -- wind down their third decade with some super-obvious and rather tuckered-out Geritol metal: Judas Priest Lite, mostly, though opener "Piece of the Action" dances closer to '80s Billy Idol. That said, there are happy accidents: The bagpipey Big Country guitars and Vatican/maritime punning ("beat of the Holy See is pounding in our hearts") in "Sailing Fire," for instance, and the ambivalently crunching AOR anthem "Me & The Boys" ("rock you somehow!," "rock 'n' roll is now a choice!").
