  TYGERS OF PAN TANG RE-UNITE WITH PRODUCER CHRIS TSANGARIDES FOR NEW ALBUM 'AMBUSH'
18th July 2012

tygers of pan tang



The influential and legendary British hard rock band Tygers Of Pan Tang are set to release a brand new album, 'Ambush', on 24th September, celebrating a landmark year in the band's history.

'Ambush' features 11 tracks of handsomely crafted melodic rock, recorded and produced by Chris Tsangarides who produced the band's historic 'Wildcat' and 'Spellbound' albums in 1980 and 1981 respectively. Those early albums were critically acclaimed and similarly revered by fans, as was the Tygers' most recent album 'Animal Instinct' which received this praise from reputed writer Geoff Barton in his 8/10 review in Classic Rock:

"A pedigree album, combining the rough 'n' readiness of the early Wild Cat-era of the band with the glossy approach when they had John Sykes on guitar. If I was thinking of buying 'Good To Be Bad' (Whitesnake), 'Songs From The Sparkle Lounge'(Def Leppard) or 'Animal Instinct' and I only had enough money for one CD, I might just plump for this one."

With a truly impressive piece of cover art by Rodney Matthews who originally worked with the band on the iconic 'Crazy Nights' album cover and with audio mastering by Ian Cooper ('Wild Cat' and Spellbound albums), some three decades on the Tygers have assembled a team which understands and lives up to their heritage.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
