Christopher Andrew Tsangarides, known as Chris Tsangarides, was a British record producer, sound engineer, and mixer, who left an indelible mark on the heavy metal and hard rock music scenes. Born on 17 August 1956, in London, England, Tsangarides displayed a passion for music from an early age. His talent and dedication would propel him to become one of the most sought-after producers in the industry.

His collaborations included notable acts such as Judas Priest, Anvil, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Helloween, Angra, Anthem, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Tygers of Pan Tang.


One of Tsangarides' breakthrough moments came in 1982 when he produced Anvil's iconic album "Metal on Metal."

Following this success, Tsangarides went on to produce Thin Lizzy's acclaimed final studio album, "Thunder and Lightning," released in 1983.

His production work was marked by an emphasis on capturing the live performance, resulting in albums that resonated with fans and stood the test of time.

Band Description:

 Girlschool is a British heavy metal band that emerged during the height of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) in the late 1970s. Known for their high-energy performances, aggressive sound, and all-female lineup, Girlschool quickly gained a loyal following among metal fans and established themselves as one of the most important bands of the movement.

 The band was formed in London in 1978 by lead vocalist and guitarist Kim McAuliffe, bassist Enid Williams, guitarist Kelly Johnson, and drummer Denise Dufort. They started playing local pubs and clubs and soon caught the attention of Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead, who offered to produce their debut single, "Take It All Away."

 The single was released in 1979 and quickly sold out, leading to the band signing with Bronze Records and releasing their debut album, "Demolition," later that year. The album received critical acclaim and helped establish Girlschool as a force to be reckoned with in the metal scene.

 Over the years, Girlschool has released several albums, including "Hit and Run," "Screaming Blue Murder," and "Play Dirty." They have also collaborated with several other notable musicians, including Motörhead, Ozzy Osbourne, and Dio.

 Despite lineup changes over the years, Girlschool has continued to tour and release music, and their influence on the metal scene can still be felt today. They have inspired many other all-female metal bands, and their legacy has helped pave the way for women in heavy music.

 In addition to their musical accomplishments, Girlschool has also been recognized for their activism and support of various social causes. They have been outspoken advocates for animal rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and women's rights, and have used their platform to raise awareness and promote positive change.
