Port Royal is the fourth album by Running Wild. This release expanded on the pirate theme introduced in their album Under Jolly Roger (1987) and established them as "pirate metal" in the metal community. Though Running Wild would mature a lot more as songwriters on future albums, Port Royal shows everything that would make them standout musicians in the German metal scene. Port Royal has everything from the epics to, the anthems to the straight up rockers. Basically, Port Royal is traditional heavy metal with more atmosphere than your general band in the genre, and a whole lot of speed metal riffs thrown in, just like on the previous.
