The influential & legendary British hard rock band Tygers Of Pan Tang are celebrating a landmark year in the band's history.
"Ambush" features 11 tracks of handsomely crafted melodic rock, recorded & produced by Chris Tsangarides who produced the band's historic "Wildcat" & "Spellbound" albums in 1980 & 1981 respectively. Those early albums were critically acclaimed & similarly revered by fans, as was the Tygers' most recent album "Animal Instinct" which received this praise from reputed writer Geoff Barton in his 8/10 review in Classic Rock "a pedigree album, combining the rough 'n' readiness of the early Wild Cat-era of the band with the glossy approach when they had John Sykes on guitar.. if I was thinking of buying Good To Be Bad (Whitesnake), Songs From The Sparkle Lounge (Def Leppard) or Animal Instinct & I only had enough money for one CD, I might just plump for this one"
With a truly impressive piece of coverart by Rodney Matthews who originally worked with the band on the iconic "Crazy Nights" album cover & with audio mastering by Ian Cooper (Wild Cat & Spellbound albums), some 3 decades forward the Tygers have assembled a team which understands & lives up to their heritage.
