On Wednesday, January 11, Mark Briody, the former guitarist for Colorado power metallers JAG PANZER, was interviewed on Greece’s Metalzone.gr radio show. Mark talked about the reasons behind the band’s decision last July to call it quits; their latest album; and his upcoming plans. He also commented on today’s metal scene and gave his own perspective on the future of heavy metal. You can now listen to the chat below.
In a statement announcing JAG PANZER‘s split, Briody explained that he and his bandmates were calling it a day because they could not “move forward as a band.”
Shortly before JAG PANZER‘s breakup, guitarist Christian Lasegue left the group to pursue his degree full time.

The CD landed at position No. 117 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“The Scourge Of The Light” was mixed by Jim Morris at Morrisound Studios in Florida and was mastered at New York’s renowned Sterling Sound.
