NWOBHM legends JAGUAR have announced the addition of Swedish vocalist L-G Persson to their line-ups.
In September 2014 JAGUAR parted company with their previous vocalist Jamie Manton following their appearance at Sweden Rock Festival in June the same year. Since then the band has been searching for the perfect vocalist both in the UK and Scandinavia, latterly though in Sweden as the band founder Garry Pepperd planned to move to Sweden to settle down with his Swedish born fiancée.
In November the same year the band released their long awaited album “Metal X” on GoldenCore Records/ZYX Music, mixed by Mike Exeter (JUDAS PRIEST, BLACK SABBATH) the album was given a release on vinyl in the summer of 2015 by the same label.
In April 2015 Garry Pepperd moved to north Sweden with his fiancee and in August the band finally found the perfect fit in Swedish born vocalist L-G Persson from the Swedish Heavy Metal/Power Metal band “The Storyteller” from Gävle, Sweden, with L-G regarded by many as one of the best heavy metal vocalists in Sweden today.
L-G is a very experienced vocalist who brings with him a wide range of different vocal registers and styles. He is best known as the frontman of the Heavy Metal/Power Metal band “The Storyteller”, and has also appeared on many other Swedish heavy metal projects. Per Nilsson from the Swedish well known international metal band “Scar Symmetry” wrote the following review about L-G‘s work for The Storyteller‘s latest album “Sacred Fire”;
JAGUAR are now planning a new beginning to put the band into a higher gear with the awesome L-G on board. The band’s crew and Jaguar Promotions can now plot the tour schedule for 2016 and beyond.
JAGUAR says; ” We are looking forward to meeting our fans in Europe and we will do our best to visit other parts of the world too. We know our fans will love L-G as much as we do as he totally blew us away! See you all very soon!! “
