JAG PANZER present lyric video for new digital single, ‘Onward We Toil’ and announce further album details;
»The Hallowed« pre-orders launched + to embark on tour in summer!
Veteran US heavy metallers JAG PANZER can finally bring some light into the darkness. The band kept teasing their upcoming studio album consistently over the last months and are now pleased to share more information about »The Hallowed«: Containing 10 songs, their brand new offering will be released on June 23rd, 2023 through Atomic Fire Records, and with ‘Onward We Toil’ the group have already launched the first digital single off the album. 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. Listen to chapter 5 of the quintet’s forthcoming heavy metal saga and check out a supporting lyric video for the song over on YouTube.
The band comment, “‘Onward We Toil’ tells the story of the people and animals in the concept pushing through adversity to reach their goal of finding »The Hallowed.« The creatures known as “The Jaw” can be heard in the beginning of the song and the epic chorus illustrates the team working together as one.”
Bass and drum tracks for »The Hallowed« 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 atSteamPunk 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.
