    I find it silly how they made "The FINAL Jolly Roger" live album to declare the final orders from the captain but end up getting back together a few months later. :P Ah well, I shouldn't complain if this means for myself to have a chance to see them live.

    I'm pretty sure that we all kwew they would not stay too long from the metalscene, so I could not care less about this "Reunion".
    Sorry Rock'n'Rolf, but this is just ridiculous....

    The last few years (Masquerade and heather) have been a pure and titanic disappointment. Better stay this way Rolfy. Wouldn't like to change your ...marvelous hair, would you?

    This is false. I love Running Wild but Rolf works a lone since the "Victory" album. He will reunite what band? The session players?? Yet i will still buy their album...

    I don't think there are many people who have been a RUNNING WILD fan longer than me, it's not physically possible unless your last name is Kasparek! Obviously RW has a long and rich legacy and many great albums. It's also obvious that the last several releases under the RW name have been pale shadows of the past, and I was glad that Rolf made the decision to go out with a very nice final concert, which was mainly of very high quality.

    This new "reunion" coming so soon after the "end", is bizarre and is "a thing that should not be". With whom is Rolf reuniting? I don't see any names mentioned. Last I heard Rolf was excited about his Toxic Taste project (I have the CD they put out - as a RW fan, I could not pass it up). What happened with that? It's all very strange!

    There comes a time, when a great thing has been done, and it's time to move on. It was time, Rolf. What are you doing now?

    This is almost as bad as the bogus Kiss "Farewell" Tour. Gone & then a year later BACK. It'll be interesting to hear the new material. I haven't like much of their output since "Port Royal".

    The new album is going to be at BEST like Brotherhood. Although I must say, even though I'm crazy to the bone for Running wild, I won't forgive him if the album isn't at least as good as Masquerade... (metal1)

    I'm not that excited myself, even though I love the band, the last show was pretty uninspired, at least compared to their performance in Wacken '03.

    I think Rogues En Vogue and The Brotherhood have some great songs on them. I'm looking so much forward to the new album!
