The seminal all-star power metal project Wolfpakk is back with their fifth album filled once again with performances from a wide array of metal talent bringing soaring, powerful vocals, driving rhythm sections and blistering guitar solos.

Wolfpakk is one of those all-star projects that goes back quite a ways, getting their start in 2011 when Mark Sweeney (ex-Crystal Ball) and Michael Voss (Mad Max, Casanova) released the debut self-titled album.  Two short years later Cry Wolf was released and then in another two years, Rise of the Animal, all of which featured an all-star cast of guest musicians.  Wolves Reign followed, in a yes, two years later in 2017, and now in 2020 we have Nature Strikes Back.  Looking back, Sweeney and Voss have been linked all the way back to 2009 when Voss was producer for Sweeney’s 2nd solo album.  Looking at the timeline for the albums, it was not long after this interaction that the two started writing tracks and finding guest artists to help bring their vision to life…and the rest as they say is “history”.
