Fans had to wait 6 years but now veteran US heavy metallers JAG PANZER are back with full force and yet another sonic preview of their highly-anticipated new album The Hallowed which will see the light of day on June 23rd through Atomic Fire Records. “Stronger Than You Know” is the title of the new digital single — chapter 4 of their upcoming musical saga, a classic 5-minute banger featuring an infectiously anthemic chorus — that can also be enjoyed in the form of a new lyric video by the band’s own Mark Briody (guitars) on YouTube.

The band explains: ” ‘Stronger Than You Know’ is written from the viewpoint of the eagles in the story. The eagles are used for surveillance, however they become killers during this song. Those who have the comic will notice that the men who the eagles kill are the band members. This is a tip-of-the-hat to JAG PANZER’s first release which shows a woman warrior killing the band…”

“The Hallowed” is a quite different album compared to JAG PANZER’s back catalogue works since it follows the conceptual storyline of the band’s comic book of the same title which came out in late 2022. Bass and drum tracks were recorded at Sonic Phish Productions in Arizona and engineered by revered drummer Ken Mary (ALICE COOPER, FIFTH ANGEL, FLOTSAM & JETSAM), with additional recording for guitars and vocals taking place at SteamPunk Audio Labs (Arizona) and Hound House Studios in Colorado. Longtime engineering guru and extended JAG PANZER family member Jim Morris mixed the record at the famous Morrisound Studios in Florida while Maor Appelbaum (FAITH NO MORE, HALFORD, CANDLEMASS, ARMORED SAINT) added his mastering magic to the album. The staggering album cover artwork was crafted by Dusan Markovic (ANGEL WITCH, VIRGIN STEELE) before longtime underground metal artist Travis Smith (MEGADETH, OPETH, OVERKILL) was brought in to handle the layout of “The Hallowed,”, finalizing an amazing team of artists for the new album.

What came into being in 1981 in Colorado Springs has lost nothing of its rebellion and power, not even over four decades later. Being inspired by the onslaught of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Mark Briody and his comrades quickly became one of the most intriguing US Power Metal acts, releasing some successful studio albums, including their 1984 debut album “Ample Destruction”, “The Fourth Judgement’ (1997), “Thane To The Throne” (2000), “The Scourge Of The Light” (2011) and their latest effort, “The Deviant Chord” (2017). After facing several line-up changes and a hiatus, JAG PANZER are still holding sway as their forthcoming album “The Hallowed” proves.
