Port Royal

       I bought this album for Conquistadores... the rest of the album hooked me on Running Wild, some 15 years after their heyday.

        For those of you who don't know, Running Wild is an 80s German power metal/thrash band who sing about freedom and pirates. They were making pirates cool two decades before Johnny Depp put on eye liner and started prancing about on the silver screen. This album is non stop chorus pedal power from the opening title track to the finale of Calico Jack. This is what metal in the 80s was supposed to be.
