British NWOBHM crushers Tygers Of Pan Tang premieres the music video for “Edge Of The World ”, taken from the upcoming record, which will be released this Spring, via Mighty Music Records.
Here they come the Tygers of heavy metal. Their new song is epic as it can be, especially with more epic guitar melodies and riffing – that made this song an outdating experience of aural domination. Of course, technical perfection by this masters is without a doubt here, as usual. The coordination and balance, arrangement’s and production are just one symphony of divine component, creating unreal and good sounds. Every part is arranged perfectly to just flow into one another, as it is suppose to be for classic heavy metal. The two riffing patters are just mind – blowing things in this song, catchy as it can be and for sure catchy for the ears of the listeners, as well. The speed metal one has the orthodox spirit of heaviness and essence of metal, presenting one of a kind old school heavy metal in modern arrangements and production. Modified, but improved to the core.
Vocalist Jack Meille shows his impressive vocal skills and rages in the song – like a true pro of this genre. Filled with experience and skills in his vocal performance. He improved songs quality and added his personal mark to it. Which is way, the song sounds so good – with such groove and catchiness. This made the song – more superb, more heavy metal, as it can be.
The best part of the song are guitar work by Robb Weir, followed by Francesco Marras guitar work. This fusion of experience and talent – with divine melodies, surely made the quality of the song on that master level of heavy metal. And there is the end, classical finishing touch – with a break -down. That absolutely gave the song – something unique and special as a finishing touch, presenting mightiness of the band and heavy metal.
Then there is a story, a dystopian one. About how we neglected our world, how we are bed to each other. And the ones to blame are the ones – who makes us all fight each other and divide us from our cause. Spread fear, false propaganda, lies, violence and taking human freedom away. The leaders of this planet have no sympathy for any of us, nor empathy. We are the ones to blame for our relationship with environment, others and everything else. So like the lyrics of the song said forever failing, is the exact word for it – we as a human race are never going to change, we are going to be divided by the people – who are divided from each other, sick and corrupted without any moral or spiritual compass , making us who we are not – destroying our world and ourselves. This is the point of the song, edge of the world is the end of it. Great story followed by even greater music. Guys completely nailed it.
This song is a heavy metal speed blaster – that has all of the best sides of heavy metal and it’s best form. Presenting one and true heavy metal spirit – powerful and divine in it’s full glory and might.
Travel to the end of the world – with heavy metal by your side.

In fact, powered by what is probably their tightest and better lineup to this date, they unleash a digital single full of energy and power: ”Edge Of The World”.

This song sums up the ultimate Tygers sound: heavy and yet melodic!.
