Producer Chris Tsangarides Passes Away

Producer Chris Tsangarides, known for his work with such metal veterans as Judas Priest, Anvil, Thin Lizzy and Helloween, has sadly passed away at the age of 61. He died yesterday (January 6th) after a bout with pneumonia, which led to heart failure.

Tsangarides worked with some of rock and metal's biggest names, producing Judas Priest's classic album, "Painkiller," as well as Anvil's, "Metal On Metal" and "Forged In Fire," with whom he would work with again for their "This Is Thirteen" album, resulting in him being featured in the award winning documentary, "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" and also did work for Black Sabbath ("The Eternal Idol,") Bruce Dickinson ("Tattooed Millionaire,") Thin Lizzy ("Renegade" and "Thunder & Lightning") and Tygers Of Pan Tang ("Wild Cat," "Spellbound" and "Ambush.") He also worked with a number of non metal groups such as Depeche Mode, Tom Jones, Concrete Blonde and The Sisters Of Mercy.
