British heavy metal legends JAGUAR have completed work on their new album, "Metal X". The CD was mixed by BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST engineer/producer Mike Exeter. Focusing on the fundamentals of the NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) era, the members of JAGUAR state that the new album is "as heavy, fast, loud and proud, all the components of what the band were about in '79, but recorded with a modern approach to get the best out of the new songs." "It was great to have Mike on board for mixing duties," the group states. "He's a real cool dude, and one of the nicest guys in metal! Mike came straight from mastering with JUDAS PRIEST to work with us. He's nonstop and we are honored he gave us his time." JAGUAR debuted some tracks from the album at their show at this year's edition of the Sweden Rock Festival, performing on the same day as BLACK SABBATH. METALLICA's Lars Ulrich also shares some words about JAGUAR in the "Metal X" sleeve notes, stating that he has always been a huge fan of the band. The CD also features a special bonus track which METALLICA fans will be familiar with. "Metal X" is JAGUAR's first new material release since "Run Ragged" in 2003 and features longtime bass player Simon Patel, who joined the band in 2006. "Metal X" digipak CDs will be offered. A limited-edition vinyl release is also being planned for later in the year.
