After their debut attack titled ‘Send Them All To Hell’ in 2014, it became a little too quiet around the heavy metal super groupPÄNZER. But the soldiers around Destruction frontman Schmier never sleep, and now they have announced that they are working on new songs again – with a new line-up! After the departure of Herman Frank (Accept), PÄNZER recruited Pontus Norgren of Hammerfall to help out with their mission, as well as V.O. Pulver (G.U.R.D., Poltergeist) on guitar, who had already helped out on the latest live shows, and has now became a fulltime member of PÄNZER.
“After producing the debut with PÄNZER, the guys asked me to help them out live to help provide the double axe-attack on stage”,recalls V.O. Pulver. “Of course I took the opportunity to rock out with my buddies. And when the chance came up to join them permanently, I didn’t hesitate to accept and now I can’t wait to play the sound of my youth!”
Pontus Norgren was just as excited to join the heavy metal war machine:
“We decided to give the fans an impression of the new PÄNZER line-up with the brand new track ‘Satan’s Hollow’“, Schmiercomments. “It stands for all of our trademarks; straight-in-your-face melting metal with an old school melodic vibe – pure energy and shredding lead guitars! We pay tribute to the music we grew up with. I hope our fans enjoy this new song as much as we do – expect the new album before summer 2017!!”
