RISE OF THE ANIMAL
WOLFPAKK, the hard rock/melodic metal allstar-project, will release its third album ‘Rise Of The Animal’ on April 14th, 2015. Lovers of high-class traditional heavy sounds already praise the amazing project, led by Alpha Wolves Mark Sweeney (ex-Crystal Ball) and Michael Voss(Michael Schenker, Casanova, Mad Max) since day one. It’s not only that the two are very good songwriters; due to connections from being in the business for many years, they always managed to gather many big names and exceptional musicians to join the ‘pakk’ and contribute to WOLFPAKK’s albums. Just take KROKUS vocalist Marc Storace as an example, who also appears in the video clip for ‘Sock It To Me’; or Michael Kiske who shines in the epic title song, while Joe Lynn Turner guides us through ‘Highlands’ – all guest musicians perform on an extremely high level. WOLFPAKK‘s third stroke again brings you the ‘Who is Who’ of the hard rock- & metal scene.
