Total Run Time 5:10

Produced by Rudy Childs
 
The term “The Wolfpack” refers to the mass attack tactics used by the Kriegsmarine in German submarines called U-boats during the World War II battles in the Atlantic. Steel Assassin, the heavy metal band from Massachusetts, wrote the song “The Wolfpack” for their most recent release WWII: Metal Of Honor, dedicated to the men and women that served gallantly in World War II.  It is also the latest music video produced by Rudy Childs from this concept album.  The video features vintage propaganda films of the U-boats as they prepare torpedoes and attack unsuspecting vessels. Contemporary shots of the band are woven into the old footage, featuring the twin Flying-V guitar attacks of Kevin Curran and Mike Mooney. We get a feel for the life at sea in the midst of high tension and battle. Aggressive front man John Falzone sings of their plight, backed by the barrage-of-hellfire rhythm section featuring Phil Grasso on bass guitar and Greg Michalowski on drums, all trademarks of the Steel Assassin style. 
 
Steel Assassin formed in 1982 and have four full length releases: From the Vaults, War of the Eight Saints, In Hellfire Forged and most recently, WWII: Metal of Honor. They are also featured on Metal Blade Records Metal Massacre 6. The band continues to keep the metal fire burning with ongoing creative endeavors.
Steel Assassin’s lead guitarist Kevin Curran stated “After working with Rudy on the ‘Blitzkrieg Demons’ video last year, the release received very positive feedback, and we had a blast doing it. We all agreed to do another one, and Rudy is as enthusiastic about metal & Steel Assassin as he is about filmmaking — a great collaborative vibe all around. We hope Steel Assassin fans enjoy this one.”
