DESCRIPTION

JAG PANZERS FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN FOUR YEARS
For the original band members Harry Conklin (vocals), Mark Briody (guitar) and John Tetley (bass), Jag Panzer has always been a matter close to their hearts. “We’ve known each other from our earliest childhood and have never lost sight of the idea that this band is based on,” Tetley explains. “I don’t exactly want to use the term ‘spiritual’, but the three of us are connected with this band by a very special relationship. You could say that our lives are inseparably linked with the history of Jag Panzer.” Basically, this heartfelt passion has always been apparent in their songs, however: the American band has never sounded as impressive, mature and accomplished as on their latest album The Scourge Of The Light. Without doubt, the band’s two main songwriters, guitarists Mark Briody and Christian Lasegue, have never been on better form. Every one of their extremely dynamic riffs sounds haunting, every melody cuts their listeners. It may sound like a contradiction, but since guitarist Chris Broderick, who was a band member between 1997 and 2007, left to join Megadeth, Jag Panzer have returned to their old forte. “There can be no question that Chris Broderick is an amazing guitarist, and we were really happy for him that he got this chance with Megadeth. But we feel that thanks to Christian Lasegue, Jag Panzer’s classic, clearly more melodic power metal style has returned and that the fans will definitely be happy about this.” Tetley may well be right since Jag Panzer’s most recent studio recording Casting The Stones (2004) was criticized, especially in Europe, for its noticeably harsher direction. “We knew that Christian was the best man for the job, after all he was a band member for three years in the mid-1980s.” But there are other reasons, too, why The Scourge Of The Light sounds so impressive. Despite their limited production budget, Jag Panzer spared neither cost nor effort to give their ten fantastic new songs a driving, but always transparent sound. For this reason, they asked Jim Morris to mix the recordings at his legendary Morrisound Studios in Florida and sent the result to New York’s renowned Sterling Sound for mastering. The result is a real ear-catcher, without any ifs and buts: “I feel The Scourge Of The Light is the best-sounding album in the history of Jag Panzer,” Tetley rightly expresses his pride in the product of his group’s labours. “It all started when Mark really pushed the envelope during the guitar recordings. And that our friend Jim Morris subsequently helped with the mix is fantastic, of course.”
