NEWS: Running Wild - Shadowmaker - Cover art and Boxed Set Information Revealed

Running Wild - Shadowmaker (to be released Germany 20th April, rest Europe 23rd April, and US/Can 24th April) artwork has been revealed today at Running Wild's official website running-wild.net. If you can by any way judge "the book by it's cover", then Shadowmaker is a bit of a mystery. The cover is quite exceptional and different by any previous album's cover artwork, and definetely does not nod to any pirate themes. It almost brings U.D.O's album covers to my mind a bit. It's simplified and sort of futuristic. I really don't know what to think out of this at the first glance -- but I certainly hope Rolf is not bringing out another Toxic Taste'laden record (Rolf's recent band project with more party hard rock feel). But we'll see. The cover was created by Jens Reinhold (Evergrey, Kingdom Come, Tank) and Rolf. You can see the cover of Shadowmaker below, feel free to express you opinion and expectations considering it!



The more specific info about different releases was also handed out:


  • Limited first edition CD in black jewel case with silver printing, slipcase plus a 40min bonus dvd containing making-of-documentary and track-by-track commentary by Rolf himself.
  • Double gatefold LP with printed innersleeves and clear vinyl.
  • Box-set limited to 1 000 copies containing 2 LP's (clear vinyl, same tracklist than regular "Double gatefold LP release"), black jewel case CD with bonus DVD (same as above I assume), poster, sticker, 30 page book in LP size about the history of the band with photos. The set is hard cardboard material with top
  • Obviously there should also be regular CD release, which was not mentioned in the official site.
