About Tygers of Pan Tang + Pectora

Tygers of Pan Tang The Story So Far……

What’s in a name? Well, quite a lot as it happens.

The Tygers of Pan Tang were an essential part of the movement that became known as New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). Signed to M.C.A records they recorded 4 albums in 3 years, toured the UK and Europe extensively, outsold ‘name’ bands in Japan and had an ‘almost’ hit single with their outstanding arrangement of The Clovers ‘Love Potion Number 9’. They weathered the mini storm of their first vocalist leaving after one album and replaced him with the towering figure of Jon Deverill. Against their record companies wishes they employed an additional guitarist, the mercurial John Sykes, who……well that’s another story. On the brink of following Def Leppard and Iron Maiden who had softened up the USA, the band imploded spectacularly when the Los Angeles based MCA refused to provide the support necessary to cross the pond and, without a doubt, cement their growing reputation stateside.

And that could well have been the end of the story had it not been for Robb Weir, who had founded the original Tygers and continued to ‘believe’. Recruiting a set of musicians who could not only perform the old tunes with the necessary reverence, but who could also carry the Tygers torch forward and make new music suitably fitting of the name Tygers of Pan Tang, he set about rebuilding their reputation.

And the results? Well, employing the vocal talents of a singer from Italy (Iacopo Jack Meille) who has been able to command the respect of Tygers fans old and new (and there are plenty of new ones) a rhythm section (Gav Gray and Craig Ellis bass and drums respectively) who are schooled in providing the necessary propulsion to drive the music from stage to audience and yet another guitarist of unnerving ability and an intuitive feel for the Tygers music (Micky Crystal) , the Tygers star has begun to rise again.

That reputation was cemented recently when they were awarded a gold album by their record company for sales and downloads of their most recent, self-titled, album released just over two years ago. In support of that album the band have played South America, North America, Japan and throughout Europe.
The Tygers have just finished recording their next album to be released worldwide in October 2019. They will then begin a two year world tour.


Support comes from Danish heavy metal band ' Pectora ' :

From the country that gave us bands like King Diamond, Pretty Maids and Volbeat comes the newcomers of hard hitting melodic Danish heavy metal: Pectora.

Since the formation of the band in 2013 Roskilde based Pectora have released the demo ”Burgeon Of Hate” in 2014 and the EP ”Redemption” in 2017. All of them leading up to their bombastic debut album ”Untaken” which was released through Mighty Music in May 2019.

”Untaken” is produced by the band and mixed and mastered by one of Germany’s leading produceres Orden Ogans Sebastian ”Seeb” Levermann (Orden Ogan, Rhapsody Of Fire, Riot V & Brainstorm) in Greenman Studios.

It’s an album rich on full blown heavy metal from start to finish. Wrapped up in a modern and big production. Pectora shows that heavy metal, in 2019, still is an active force, where old school and new school heavy metal collides and melt together in the best possible way.

The 8 tracks on ”Untaken” showcases a band that knows how to write powerful songs with strong riffs, memorable melodies, harmonies and bombastic sing-a-long choruses, that stick to your brain.
If you are a fan of classic metal, thrash, power or hard rock and if you like your music fast, heavy and slow – Pectora is what you are looking for!
