Pänzer  


Panzer was conceived by veteran German drummer Stefan Schwarzmann (ex-Accept and many others), initially roping in another former Accept man in guitarist Hermann Frank (who's since moved on) and completing the lineup with Destruction frontman Schmier. The 2014 album, Send Them All To Hell, slots somewhere between the two groups, leaning more toward outright Germanic thrash but with a bit more melody in places. Backed by Nuclear Blast Records and featuring a predictably solid production, the album pretty much plays it safe in terms of innovation, but clearly the European market is strong for bands like this.
