Jaguar: Run Ragged

New Wave of British Heavy Metal survivors Jaguar I don't remember those guys, either managed to successfully combine traditional heavy metal and speed metal into sort of a Raven-meets-Stormtrooper sound, earning the band the accolades of Metallica's Lars Ulrich eons ago. After a handful of albums, Jaguar broke up.

Run Ragged, recorded in 2002 and released this July, includes only one original member (guitarist Garry Peppard) and stems from a perceived renewed interest in the band. New singer Jamie Manton can scream with the best of the NWOBHM standard-bearers, and his delivery is nothing short of impassioned. Highlights include the soaring-ballad-turned-balls-out-rocker "As the Crow Flies," the riff-heavy bass on "Living Hell" and the melodic dynamic of the aptly named "Eighties." Overall, though, Jaguar does nothing that Iron Maiden, Praying Mantis and Saxon haven't done recently and done better.
