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, Briody and his comrades quickly became one of the most intriguing U.S. 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).

JAG PANZER recently welcomed longtime touring guitarist Ken Rodarte as an official band member.

Ken‘s done a great job on the last several tours,” Briody says. “When he expressed interest in joining the band, we put him on an eight-week audition to see how he’d fit in with our creative process. Ken’s contribution to ‘The Hallowed’ exceeded all our expectations. HarryRikardJohn and I are all excited to have Ken on board.”
