The Hallowed is quite a different album compared to JAG PANZER‘s back catalog works as it follows the conceptual storyline of the band’s comic book of the same title which came out in late 2022.
Bass and drum tracks for The Hallowed were recorded at Sonic Phish Productions in Arizona and engineered by revered drummer Ken Mary (Alice Cooper, Fifth Angel, Flotsam & Jetsam), with additional recording for guitars and vocals taking place at SteamPunk Audio Labs in Arizona and Hound House Studios in Colorado. Longtime engineering guru and extended JAG PANZER family member Jim Morris mixed the record at the famous Morrisound Studios in Florida while Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Halford, Candlemass, Armored Saint) added his mastering magic to the album. The staggering cover artwork was crafted by Dusan Markovic (Angel Witch, Virgin Steele) before longtime underground metal artist Travis Smith (Megadeth, Opeth, Overkill) was brought in to handle the layout of The Hallowed, finalizing an amazing team of artists for the new album.

What came into being in 1981 in Colorado Springs has lost nothing of its rebellion and power, not even over four decades later. Being inspired by the onslaught of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, Mark Briody and his comrades quickly became one of the most intriguing US power metal acts, releasing some successful studio albums, including their 1984 debut album Ample Destruction, The Fourth Judgement (1997), Thane To The Throne (2000), The Scourge Of The Light (2011), and The Deviant Chord (2017). After facing several lineup changes and a hiatus, JAG PANZER are still holding sway as their forthcoming album The Hallowed proves.
