PANTHER is a hard rock / heavy metal band that was based in Los Angeles, California. Formed in 1984 and inspired by bands like Scorpions, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Panther started with live shows in the legendary Troubadour venue, where bands like Van Halen and Guns n’ Roses got their start. With singer Jeff Scott Soto, Panther was one of the hottest new names in Los Angeles but just after the recordings of “Panther”, Jeff Scott Soto left Panther to pursue a career with Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s Rising Force and later, Soto became one of the best hard rock singers, and even toured with Journey. “Panther” was finally released in 1986 and became an underground hit that remains up to this day classic.
Highly recommended for fans of Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Stryper, Dokken, Axel Rudi Pell, Q5, Loudness.
