To kick off a series of top ten lists from artists and musicians that we’ve, well, hassled into submission Jason Decay of Toronto traditionalists Cauldron has given us his top ten tracks to get him in the mood for All Hallows Eve.
10. Halloween by Helloween “I suppose this one’s a bit tedious, but remains a classic where I’m from.”
9. Trick Or Treat by Fastway “A nice wintry track about the festive season.”
8. Halloween by Ostrogoth “This is a summer record for me, but this particular tune tends to carry over into October.”
7. Drive To Santa Mira by John Carpenter “Essential.”
6. Children Of The Witches by Halloween “The masters.”
5. Halloween by King Diamond “King knows best and so would you if every night was Halloween.”
4. Halloween by Seduce “The original!”
3. Halloween Night by Halloween “One of my fave tracks! Find this one.”

1. Halloween by 220 Volt “What Halloween is like in Sweden. Pretty similar to Halloween in America from what I gather… My favourite Halloween song these last few years, up there with Misfits.”

We’re sat at his label’s studio in Hannover, Germany, where select journalists have been invited to hear the band’s newest album, ‘Resilient’, Running Wild’s 15th album, and second since Rolf got back on the ship after a seven year break (bar an explosive “final” show at Wacken 2009). Kicking off with ‘Soldiers Of Fortune’, the new album comes with as much roaring thunder as ‘Soldiers Of Hell’, from their 1984 debut full-length ‘Gates To Purgatory’, and marks a fist-raising return for the Gods of the Iron.
