Wild Dogs  


In the Shrapnel Records tradition, Wild Dogs played conventional 80's metal with excellent guitarwork. The vocalist and the drummer (McCourt and Castronovo) were in a side project called Dr. Mastermind, who also recorded for Shrapnel. By the end of the eighties the original band was done, but McCourt has since kept the band going with a variety of lineups and has released all sorts of material (both direct Wild Dogs albums as well as related projects) over the years under his own label USMetal Records. As of April 2010 three of the original members are together in the latest incarnation of the group.
