RUNNING WILD MASQUERADE reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Masquerade is the ninth Running Wild album from 1995. Masquerade marks the beginning of a conceptual trilogy for Running Wild, with a theme on good versus evil. Some versions of the album include a couple of bonus tracks taken from the band's early days, namely the ones that appeared on the reasonable well-known Death Metal split from 1984 that also featured Helloween, Hellhammer and Dark Avenger.

While Masquerade has always seemed to be quite a big step back from Black Hand Inn for me, this is still quite a strong release from the band. I find that Running Wild became a bit more modern sounding when it comes to producing power metal with this album, opposed to the distinctly old-school vibes that they'd maintained up until this point. There are several highlights, my personal favourite being Wheel of Doom closely followed by the title track or perhaps Lions of the Sea, but overall it's just another solid release from a band doing what they do best; neither a masterpiece like Black Hand Inn or Death or Glory, but overall more memorable than an album like Blazon Stone. 4 Stars.

Running Wild changed up their sound for this album, which sees them amping up the power metal influence on their music tenfold to produce a fast-paced and energetic first entry in a trilogy of concept albums. It's enthusiastically and bombastically over-the-top, but then again so is the very idea of doing a concept album trilogy in the first place, and as far as power metal goes it's fairly competently performed though it lacks personality. I can imagine Running Wild's fans being quite divided over this one, because even though I haven't really been thrilled by what I've heard of their "pirate metal" phase, I will concede that it offered a very particular personality for the band - a personality which feels absent here.
