4.2 excellentmanosg STAFF | July 15th 17

Addressing the elephant in the room, Black Hand Inn is indeed a typical Running Wild album which contains more or less the exact same formula since 1987 with the exception that is more focused on heavy and less on speed metal. Therefore, what matters is the level of execution which on here is at a very high point. Is this the best Running Wild LP? Well, you can certainly make a case for it. The guitar riffs and leads are as inspired and catchy as ever, the songwriting keep the listener's interest despite the its duration, Rock 'n' Rolf's vocals are great and not too loud, and the only element that is average is the drumming. This is certainly a very enjoyable and fun heavy metal album in the vein of Accept, Judas Priest and Grave Digger.

Since Port Royal Rolf's songwriting remains unchanged, using the same formula in every song. However Black Hand Inn remains an enjoyable album if we skip the deja vu moments and focus only on the album.
