German heavy metal band Running Wild were formed in 1976 in Hamburg, but shot to fame during the emergence of the German metal scene in the early to mid-1980s.

Over the course of their career, they have released sixteen studio albums, three live albums, five compilation albums, and six singles/EPs. Although their earlier releases contained Satanic themes and imagery, they later invented the pirate metal sub-genre after the band released their third album in 1987, Under Jolly Roger, which was a switch to pirate-based and historical themes, creating and influencing the later named Pirate Metal sub-genre of heavy metal in the 2000s in the process.

While the historical lyrics were very superficial at first, the lyrics for later albums were intensively researched, by frontman Rolf Kasparek in particular. After this album, from 1988 to 1992 (for the albums Port Royal, Death or Glory, Blazon Stone and Pile of Skulls), Running Wild mainly wrote historically based lyrics. In addition to lyrics about pirates like Calico Jack, Klaus Störtebeker, or the little-known Henry Jennings, the band also addressed subjects like the Wars of the Roses, the Battle of Waterloo, or the colonisation of the New World by the Conquistadors.

They have sold over 1.8 million albums globally making them one of Germany’s largest exports.

The albums re-issues available in this campaign on both expanded 2Cd and 180g Vinyl are:
Gates to Purgatory, Branded And Exiled, Under Jolly Roger, Port Royal, Death Or Glory (released 11th August), Blazon Stone, Piles of Skulls, Black Hand Inn & Masquerade (released 25th August
