Raven - The Pack is Back

Raven was one of the better underground metal acts of the eighties, one who seldom gets acknowledgement. Of course, if they were to be judged by The Pack is Back, then the case would be made for their dismissal. Still, they could be looked upon as power and speed metal ambassadors of their time through better efforts such as All For One, Wiped Out, Rock Until You Drop and Life's a Bitch.

Raven were not exactly known for putting a heck of a lot of effort into their album covers, though Rock Until You Drop is clutter-filled hilarity, while The Pack is Back is well...just plain embarassing. Trust me, it doesn't speak all the well of the package beneath it, either. Oh well, everyone has their bad days...
