Jag Panzer - _Thane to the Throne_
(Century Media, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (
I don't know what the guys in Jag Panzer are drinking, or what lucky charms they got draped around their necks, but this Colorado progressive metal machine continues to put out great records. The new disc, _TttT_, is the interesting and (very) different follow up to 1997's _The Fourth Judgement_ and 1998's _The Age of Mastery_. And why is this so different? Well, for one thing, the whole disc is based on the work of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Yes, you heard me: Macbeth! The band has worked their music and material around the classic theatre production, with singer Harry Conklin drumming up some great vocal styles and axe-slingers Mark Briody and Chris Broderick bringing up the rear. A concept-style record that works wonderfully, most notably on numbers "Bloody Crime" and "Insanity's Mind".
