After more than three decades of delivering heavy metal to the masses, JAG PANZERhave decided to call it quits.
“We are proud of every album we released and the support we’ve received from the heavy metal community,” states guitarist and founder Mark Briody. ” We’ve played so many places around the world and enjoyed every minute of it but the time has come where we just cannot move forward as a band.”
Guitarist Christian Lasegue left the band last month to pursue his degree full time. “Christian did an amazing job on The Scourge of the Light and it was a pleasure working with him,” continues Briody. “We wished Christian well but kept this quiet until we found a replacement.”
Drummer Rikard Stjernquist says,”Several guitar players applied for the job. It was a pleasant surprise to see so many young guitarists with advanced chops. One player, 19 year old Jake Dreyer, submitted videos of him nailing solos from both Chris Broderick and Christian Lasegue. We were ready to welcome Jake into the band but unfortunately that will not happen. There is no doubt in any of our minds that Jake will go on to be a household name in his own right.”
Bassist John Tetley adds a final statement:” In closing, we’d like to send out a huge heartfelt THANK YOU to metal fans throughout the world. You all rule!”
KITTIE have revealed the first of many behind the scenes clips of the band hard at work on their upcoming record, due out August 30th.
The band will release a brand new record entitled “I’ve Failed You” on August 30th, 2011 via eOne Music. For this effort, the band enlisted the talents of Siegfried “Siggy” Meier at Beach Road Studios in Goderich Ontario who took on producing rolls.
A brand new track called “We Are The Lamb” can be heard HERE. KITTIE recently shot a video for said track last month in New York.
“‘We Are The Lamb is the first single and is about as musically devastating as we get. It is a tale of self sacrifice, to give those you love a chance to grow and learn to live for themselves. I cannot express to you how proud of this album we are. ‘I’ve Failed You’ is real, honest, angry and ugly” says front woman Morgan Lander.
1. I’ve Failed You
2. We Are The Lamb
3. Whisper of Death
4. What Have I Done
5. Empires (Part 1)
6. Empires (Part 2)

California rockers, Diamond Lane released their second longplayer, World Without Heroes in May. The band’s latest effort is a pretty cool blend of modern rock, and 80’s hair metal.
“All Rebels Welcome” starts World Without Heroes off right with a hard rockin’ number that does a good job getting the party started. The fun continues with the cleverly titled “I Know Who You Did Last Summer”. This catchy rocker has become a staple of my summer time, hard rock playlist. “City of Sin” has more of a modern rock feel to it, but it is a very catchy song, and is another tune worth checking out.
If you aren’t sold on Diamond Lane after hearing the song “Sundress City”, there is no hope for you. This is an upbeat rocker that demands to be played at maximum volume.
Brandon Baumann’s vocals have just enough rasp to make the songs on World Without Heroes interesting. When Jarret Reis cuts loose on the guitar, he takes the music on this CD to a whole new level. There are some moments on World Without Heroes that offers me an 80’s flashback that brings old Warrant tunes to mind, but there is enough of a modern take on many of the songs that keeps Diamond Lane from sounding like another retread hair metal act.
World Without Heroes has been a pleasant surprise in 2011. This fun rockin’ CD ought to open up many doors for Diamond Lane, and is definitely a disc you should check out.

With a warm summer breeze blowing in from Caribbean Sea, Bad Company rocked my summer vacation with an excellent set of live tunes that seemed perfect for the sand, and surf I enjoyed earlier this month in Mexico. No, Bad Company didn’t play on the beach I vacationed at (although that would have have been extremely cool). On April 2010, Bad Company performed live at the Wembley Arena in London. This excellent live show was captured not only on CD (sold separately), but on DVD and Blu-ray as well.
Live At Wembley catches Bad Company in fine form. The ageless Paul Rodgers sounds every bit as invigorating as he did on Bad Company’s 1974 debut. I couldn’t have picked a more perfect set of Bad Company tunes if I chose the set list myself. This live CD has all of the band’s hits, and the audio captured from this performance is near soundboard quality.
Bad Company’s Live at Wembley is easily one of the best live CD’s I have heard in 2011. If you are a fan of band, you owe it to yourself to check this out!
