5.0 out of 5 stars The king of X-Wild's albums July 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Savageland is the best X-Wild album in the whol(r)e world. It has the power and anger of the album So What? and the melodies from Running Wild's Death or Glory. The perfect album...

2.0 out of 5 stars 'X' Doesn't Mark the Spot Feb. 7 2007
By A. Coulson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In theory, having ex-RUNNING WILD members team up with an Udo clone to play no-frills German power metal works. In theory. In practice however, this album does not work at all. First off, the singing is definitely an acquired taste. I don't mind Udo's voice on classic ACCEPT albums, but this soundalike just does not work well hereon. The bigger disappointment is the music. RUNNING WILD has had plenty of talented musicians among their ranks, but on 'Savageland' these guys really sound like they're just going through the motions. Running Wild typically has more guitar hooks in the first 30 seconds of a song than this entire album contains. 'Savageland' isn't awful, but it just plods along, doing nothing interesting musically. The story-concept doesn't help either; being yet another half-baked fantasy story that comes across as 1/3 Road Warrior, 1/3 Dune, and 1/3 Braveheart, which equals 100% hokey. Anyone wanting a fix of good ol' fashioned German power metal would be better off tracking down releases by bands like Running Wild, early Accept, Atlain, Not Fragile, Galloglass, etc etc etc. Don't get caught up on the idea that these guys are gonna sound like classic RUNNING WILD... given the boring music on this album, there may be a good reason that Rolf made these guys walk the plank.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden masterpiece July 5 2006

If you mix Accept and Running Wild and make them more focused, you'll get this concept album. Has some insanely catchy songs. Don't pass it up!
3.0 out of 5 stars Ex-Running Wild members proto power metal band Sept. 29 2008
By Paul Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A concept album put together by a trio Axel Morgan (G), Jens Becker (B), and Frank Knight (V) this album came out to no fanfare at all and has been lost to memory, like so many others over the years. But that's a little unfair as it's quite serviceable if you like your metal traditional and straight ahead without delving into thrash or growling vocals. The eleven tracks here are admittedly a little reminiscent of Running Wild especially the first half of the record, useful but somewhat immobile riffs chugging away underneath mid range non acrobatic vocals. Production allows all the instruments equal share of the mix and is quite traditional and that suits the players as there is some nice work here and an honourable mention should go to Frank Ullrich who did the drums for the guys and does a nice job that even a drumming luddite such as myself can appreciate.

The second half of the album does introduce a few more permutations on the formula, seeming somehow a little more varied. The album comes with a booklet with fully lyrics and the cover art kind of tells you what your likely to get . And for those unsure if this is for you, here is the synopsis of the story as written on the inside front cover of the album, spelling errors and grammatical gaffes included;

"Savageland", another time, another world, where under a cold blue sun, the evil "Duke Kron", half brother of the murdered ruler of savageland, seeks to deny the rightful heir - "Braveheart", his destiny.
"Duke Kron" cannot do this until he has found and extinguished the mythical dragon "Moroth", who guards the "shield of darkness" (a force for good or evil to whom whoever possesses it) the duke must keep Braveheart from finding the shield. he therefore sets out to destroy Braveheart and all men of good heart by using his dark legions of damned souls, all what have been put under the spell of the "Blue Flame", which the duke keeps burning by the rare ore that is dug by the slave children in the underground mines as events unfold "Elnor", Bravehearts daughter, is accidently killed by himself, while trying to summon mystic forces against the duke.
"Braveheart" swears vengeance!
The "Duke" must be stopped!
To save "Savageland"!

So now you know perhaps if your likely to be on board. Though I stress the album hangs together even if you ignore the story, perhaps it holds together better if you ignore it actually. A very solid three stars but no more.

this cd rocks- Frank Knight's UDO like vocals are also great. Don't usually go for concept albums but still liked this - Stand Out tracks 'Duke Kron (Born for war)', 'Murder in Thy Name', Field of Blackbirds'.
