US Melodic Power Metal pioneers Jag Panzer have signed a recording deal with SPV Steamhammer, to release the band’s highly accomplished new ten track studio album, ‘The Scourge Of The Light’, on SPV / Steamhammer, on February 28th 2011. ‘The Scourge of The Light’ marks a major return to Jag Panzer’s distinctive, melodic power metal style, rather than the harsher, harder sound found on their most recent studio album, ‘Casting The Stones’, released in 2004.
After guitarist Chris Broderick, who was a band member from 1997 – 2007, left to join Megadeth, Jag Panzer were reunited with guitarist Chris Lasegue, who had originally been in the band from 1986 – 1988. “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.” (John Tetley).
‘The Scourge Of The Light’, which was mastered by Jim Morris at his legendary Morrissound Studios in Florida before being mastered at New York’s renowned Sterling Sound is, states Tetley, “the best-sounding album in the history of Jag Panzer.
