Danish death metal mercenaries Panzerchrist have set August 13th as the North American release date for their seventh album, aptly entitled "The 7th Offensive." For a taste of things to come, the band and Listenable Records hooked up with GunShyAssassin.com for the premier of the album's title track. Stream the song here.
Panzerchrist used three different studio to complete their new assault. Guitars and bass were recorded in the Igloo by HR Swan, drums were recorded at AMP studio by Jens Förster and Markus Ziemer,while vocals and the final mix were done in Death Island Studio with engineer Marco Angioni.
Although very extreme musically on a constant basis, Panzerchrist has never quite done the same album twice. "The 7th Offensive" shows a slightly more melodic and evil approach to the guitars; enhancing the grey, sinister feel of a battlefield. The band's intended bleak sound was without a doubt achieved. The album also sees Panzerchrist return to the ultra-guttural and pure death metal styled vocals. As the band says, "The war is over Let's start a new one. Death forever, Panzer!"

Denmark’s biggest metal label, Mighty Music, has resurfaced. Founding members Bjarke Ahlstrand and Michael H. Andersen comment: ”We have spend the last couple of years building up Target Distribution, which today is Denmark’s leading music distribution company within alternative music.

This time around we're ready with much bigger facilities and man power, namely that of Target, and we have no doubt Mighty Music will a serious player in the future metal world”

Reno Killerich (PANZERCHRIST, VILE, HUMAN ERUPT) is strongly rumored to have landed the session-drummer gig in DIMMU BORGIR for the group's upcoming live appearances. The Danish skinsman, who rehearsed with DIMMU on Friday (March 26), is expected to join the band during Ozzfest 2004 as well as for the preceding European and South American dates, according to informed sources. In addition, it has been revealed that legendary drummer Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DARK ANGEL) has offered his services to the group in the event that DIMMU BORGIR don't find a suitable replacement for Nick Barker, who was unceremoniously "removed" from the band's lineup in January.
Killerich, widely considered to be one of the most skilled speed/grind drummers around, won the title "fastest feet in the world" with more than 800 hits on the pedals in one minute at the NAMM music convention in the U.S., according to published reports.
