Jag Panzer Prepare to Unleash 'The Scourge of the Light'
Jag Panzer / SPV
It's no coincidence that Jag Panzer share their initials with another power metal act -- that'd be Judas Priest, of course -- since they subscribe to the same soaring metal style as the soon-to-be-retired vets.
Guitarist Chris Broderick is long gone and in the Megadeth fold, but Christian Laseque -- who was a member of the band in the mid-'80s -- has filled his sizable shoes, infusing the Panzer with a more classic, traditional power metal style.
But there are other reasons why 'The Scourge of the Light' will impress. The record supposedly sounds better than anything Jag Panzer have ever committed to tape. That's certainly enough to get us interested.
