Every Shirt CXVII: Running Wild

shirt: Running Wild
size: 2XL (EU)
vintage: 2009
provenance: festival

I have an order in for a Wacken '09 festival shirt (see raging in re the merch crush), but even without it, I was well satisfied with this as a sole souvenir of this year's fest. My Running Wild fandom is well attested, and this special design for the final show is one that I'm glad I had the chance to pick up. Whoever picks up their crown, they were the first and will remain for a while yet the best, one of the very few gimmick-heavy metal bands that made a worthy career out of it, and that on the very real strength of their music.
