Heavy metal saviours PÄNZER will unleash their sophomore record entitled “Fatal Command” on October 6th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. The band unveils another new interview trailer. Watch front man Schmier open up about what inspired him during the songwriting process. In this clip he explains why he enjoys paying tribute to his heroes, and why he never wanted to sound like his main band DESTRUCTION with this old school heavy metal project PÄNZER.
“When we wrote this album, we looked back on the history of heavy metal and wanted to pay tribute to the past of that genre. Many people are asking ‘What is PÄNZER doing? They do nothing new’. But we never wanted to do anything new, we want to pay tribute to the stuff we grew up with and to the traditional heavy metal, which fell more and more into the background these days.”
