Crossfire-Metal.de - 'Ambush (2020 Reissue)' Review
by Thorsten Roggenbuck

It is completely puzzling to me why the Tygers Of Pan Tang didn't make their big breakthrough in the early eighties, as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Was it the overpowering shadow of such bands as Iron Maiden and Saxon or were wrong business decisions made? Who knows? In any case, it cannot be due to a lack of musical quality. Because to this day, despite various line-up changes over time, the British still produce first-class melodic metal that still has its fans and listeners, which can be proven by constant live activities in recent years. This re-publication of the original, originally published eight years ago, is convincing across the board. Catchy rock songs with catchy tune potential should stimulate the listener to deal with the rest of the musical creativity of the British. As a bonus, a demo, a studio outtake (no idea why "Cruel Hands of Time" didn't make it on the album) and two live pieces are donated, which prove that the guys can still do it live. It is forbidden to highlight individual titles, as the level is consistently high across the whole album.

Grade: 8.5 out of 10 points
