The Pack Is Back is the fifth full-length album by the English heavy metal band Raven, released in 1986 (see 1986 in music). It was recorded in the USA with renowned producer Eddie Kramer and features a sound more FM-friendly and commercial than any other Raven album. Despite the pressure of the label to produce a commercially successful album, The Pack Is Back did not have any relevant chart entry.[2]
