MP News - 'Ambush' Review


The Tygers Of Pan Tang were one of the first bands - if not the best band ever - involved in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) between the end of the seventies and the beginning of the eighties along with groups such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest . Recorded and produced by Chris Tsangarides, the legendary producer of Wildcat (1980) and Spellbound (1981) - as well as Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy - this new, energetic and fun Ambush collects 11 tracks of great taste and vitality. The incisive guitar riffs of the founder Robb Weir and Dean Robertson and powerful, beautiful voice of Italian Jacopo Meille (with the band since 2004), make it an enjoyable and compelling album, strengthened by a solid rhythmic base of Gavin Gray (bass) and Craig Ellis (drums). An eye to the history of the band originally from Whitley Bay - back on its feet by Weir in 2001-in "Hey Suzie", which recalls the famous "Suzie Smile", even if the best episodes are the exciting "Keeping Me Alive", "These Eyes "," Speed "and" Rock & Roll Dream ". Excellent guitar on "She", and "Man Of Fire" (with Meille really the stars) draws attention to the Led Zeppelin have influenced the new wave of British heavy metal. Among stabbing guitars, melodic refrain guessed riffs and captivating Tygers continue to have their say with a heavy metal fresh, honest and vibrant.
