Get your denim and run for cover: they are rolling again! Two and a half years after their infamous wake-up call Send Them All To Hell, heavy metal saviours PÄNZER have returned to the scene. Fatal Command will be released on October 6th via Nuclear Blast, and the record stands for what all four members have in common - the love for pure fuckin' heavy metal.
Fatal Command lives and breathes heavy metal like a few other albums of recent years do. It is a monolith of a record on which the tempestuous music, the provocative artwork and Schmier's social-criticism come together under a metallic and indestructible hide, courtesy of Little Creek Studio in Basel, Switzerland. One thing, however, is setting Fatal Command apart from the perfect heavy metal record: "There's no ballad! But as the singer, I wanted to spare mankind," he laughs. Consequently, PÄNZER prefer to hit the throttle and concentrate on kicking as much ass as possible. Fatal Command proudly wears the insignia that so many current bands are lacking, a bold statement against wimps and posers. PÄNZER swear a solemn oath on Fatal Command: They will be true to heavy metal in good as well as in bad times, in sickness and in health. They will love it and honour it all the days of their lives until death does them part. Amen!
