Singer Dan Nelson (DevilSize, BlackGates), who briefly fronted Anthrax from 2007 to 2009, has started up “a New York heavy metal band”.
The project is named WOLFPACK BLACK and a snippet of their song “Righteous” can be heard in the teaser clip streaming below. The clip was shot at a recent video/ photoshoot for the band at Hellhound Studios in New Jersey.
The WOLFPACK BLACK band bio reads like this:
“Wolfpack Black… A band whose name and sound grab and command your attention from the strike of the very first chord.
Metal through and through, and straight on to their burning angry core. This group is hungry, determined and ready for die-hard rock and metal fans and the cutthroat music scene… and ready to take no prisoners.
Forged in late 2016 by vocalist / guitarist Dan Nelson (ex-Anthrax, BlackGates, Year Of The Tyrant) with one goal in mind…To continue creating both brutal and catchy music, this time from the coast The Pack calls home.
Along with longtime bassist Pat Foote (Steel Reign), the band embarked on a successful campaign of writing, appearances, pre-production and a short run of shows in 2017.
Entering into 2018, the band’s lineup is now complete following the addition of drummer Dan Mintzer (Pull, Breakage Rising).
With an arsenal of new songs and a ton of shows in tow… The Pack is poised and ready for WAR. Join the Revolution.”
