Jag Panzer Talks Latest Album, "The Deviant Chord"

Power metal is an interesting genre. While some countries can't seem to get enough of it and hold up such bands as Blind Guardian and Iced Earth as idols equal to Judas Priest or Iron Maiden in metal music, it seems to be almost invisible in other nations. While Germany has long welcomed the genre, it's pretty rare to find a power metal show in the United Kingdom. Perhaps this is why, thirty eight years after forming, Jag Panzer, regarded by many as the fathers of American power metal, has only just performed in Great Britain for the first time.

Not only was I privileged enough to attend this moment in history, but I also had the pleasure of sitting down with founding guitarist Mark Briody to discuss the history of the band, their latest album, "The Deviant Chord," the return of bandmate Joey Tafolla, Dean guitars and much more. You can watch the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: It's been thirty eight years since Jag Panzer formed and you've finally made it, you're finally in the UK, so welcome!

Mark Briody: Thank you. We've been trying to get into the UK forever but Kerrang! never covered us. I don't know why (laughs) So I don't know if that had something to do with it but this is the first time we were ever booked to come to the UK so we jumped on the chance!

Oz: I was shocked when I saw the poster and it said "First ever UK show."

Mark: I was shocked when they made it work because I've always wanted to come. I grew up reading Metal Forces magazine, reading Kerrang! and so I've always wanted to play the UK so this is cool.
