Pile of Skulls is the seventh studio album by Running Wild, released in 1992. It is their last album with guitarist Axel Morgan. It is the first album almost completely dominated by songwriting from band leader Rolf Kasparek but remains a fan favourite. The album has sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. The song "Jennings' Revenge" tells about the exploits of pirate Henry Jennings. The lyrics of "Treasure Island" are based on the book of the same title by 19th century author Robert Louis Stevenson.
Pile of Skulls Lyrics.
Album (Studio full-length).
If Running Wild had done this for the rest of the songs, the album could have been pretty good, but instead they ended up with something that's half allright and half filler. The CD is pretty catchy, but without the music to back it up, you'll wish the choruses weren't stuck in your head. 1992's Pile of Skulls at times harks back to older material like Under Jolly Roger, with the intensity and attitude of classics like War In The Gutter, but in a better produced way with a lot more melody vowed into the process, with songs like Fistful of Dynamite. But this also carries on the pattern of getting ever more epic.
