JAG PANZER – launch ‘Prey!’ music video in support of »Welcome To The Hallowed Tour 2023«!

After successfully releasing their first album in six years, a conceptual opus titled »The Hallowed,« through Atomic Fire Records last month (Official German Album Chart: #23; Official Swiss Album Chart: #62), US heavy metal act JAG PANZER are about to kick off their European tour in support of the record at Germany‘s Headbangers Open Air Festival tomorrow; also including a stop at Wacken Open Air, the 10-date run will come to an end in the form of an appearance at Alcatraz Festival (Kortrijk, BE) on August 12 (all dates can be found below!). Reason enough for the group to unveil a music video for the track ‘Prey!,’ which can also be found on the much celebrated album, today.

Guitarist Mark Briody adds: “‘Prey!’ is probably the band’s favorite song to rehearse. The quick riff is lots of fun to play live! In the album concept this is where the panthers kill a family so that the team can take their supplies. We wanted something a bit different for this song, so there is no solo and the structure is much different from the other songs. The track also showcases some of our more unique influences. For example, the main riff in ‘Prey!’ ends on 4. We don’t do that a lot in our music but some of our very early (young teens) influences such as THE RUNAWAYS’ ‘Cherry Bomb’ ends the riff on 4.”

»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.
