TYGERS OF PAN TANG ‘Live In the Roar’
(Angel Air Records SJPCD146) (2003)

Tygers Of Pan Tang

There's something strange going on here. This is a live album that sounds like it was done in the studio. The audience noise which - let's face it - could have added some atmosphere has all but been mixed out. The album is, consequently, a tad sterile and the title 'Live In the Roar' somewhat inexplicable. There's no doubting the NWOBHM finesse on offer here and the Tygers spearheaded that early eighties movement with the likes of Saxon, Girlschool and Samson. For those of a certain age the genre was characterised by speed metal guitars, catchy riffs and robust tales of life on the road.

The Tygers have some good songs in their repertoire but how we ever stomached some of the cliched lyrics beggars belief. There's a DVD to accompany this release, no doubt the audience and between-track banter will be reinstated
