New Members Announced By Panzer, New Song Available For Streaming

German metal act Panzer - featuring bassist/vocalist Schmier (Destruction) and ex-Accept drummer Stefan Schwarzmann - announced a new lineup. Replacing Herman Frank on guitar will be Poltergeist guitarist V.O. Pulver and HammerFall's Pontus Norgren.

"After producing the debut with Panzer, 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: "It was not a hard decision when I got asked to join the Panzer project, it was a straight up YES! To be able to create music with good friends is the most important thing in my world and in this band, having fun when making music, is number one. I'm looking forward to all of the craziness that the future is going to bring with these guys. So let's kick some serious...!"

Fans of the band can expect a loud comeback in 2017, since Schmier has already revealed some great news about the band's future plans: "(The German) Panzer was always about some friends jamming their favorite music, without any pressure of the business and exaggerated expectations. We have decided to release this brand new song 'Satan's Hollow' for the fans as a statement, because people ask me all the time 'Will Panzer go on?' This track simply shows that we are creative and working on a new record for 2017! The next album will continue our tribute to our roots with pure fuckin' METAL! Oh and one more little thing – as we have a Swedish and Swiss member now, just simply call us Panzer!"

Panzer made the announcement in a video clip featuring the new song "Satan's Hollow," which you can check out in the player below. "We decided to give the fans an impression of the new Panzer line-up with the brand new track 'Satan's Hollow'", Schmier comments. "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!!"
