The Lost US Jewels Vol.13 ; RUNNER – Falling Hearts (2022) HQ *only at 0dayrox*
As part of the treasurable Steelheart Records ‘Lost US Jewels’ series, here’s the long lost, cult classic album “Falling Hearts” from Americans RUNNER. Originally released in limited quantities via a small label in 1991, all over the years this album become some kind of the “holy grail” of Melodic Metal / Hard Rock.
This ”The Lost US Jewels Vol.13 ; RUNNER – Falling Hearts” pressing is limited to 300 copies – already almost out of print – has been remastered from the original master plus 1 unreleased bonus track.
ICON, MALICE, DOKKEN, early QUEENSRYCHE fans, here’s something you should check it out. These songs were written in around 1986-1987, and will bring you to the “golden ages” when the girls were pretty and we were young, wild and free!
Chicago based outfit RUNNER recorded their debut album in 1987, but a fateful crash involving their original lead singer saw him getting jailed and the band re-recording all his vocals with a new singer. Their label Rock Hard Records signed guitarist Sean Colligan new band Barracuda and shelved the RUNNER album.
As the Barracuda debut “Open Fire” (1989) did well the label decided to recoup their investment and released the RUNNER album almost 5 years since recorded as a limited edition of 300 copies.
You’ll be surprised by RUNNER’s “Falling Hearts” quality. A pretty amazing band which deserved a much better luck.
