Members of ACCEPT & DESTRUCTION Launch PANZER
STOP FUCKING YELLING INTO MY EAAAAAARS!
Supergroups are at an immediate advantage for a few reasons. Aside from amassing publicity at the very moment of their inception and effortlessly drawing followers from the fanbases of multiple groups, they can pretty much use any band name that they want to use, regardless of whether or not it’s already taken. This week, three heavy metal legends formed Panzer and inadvertently ruined the lives of nobodies around the globe. It’s sad, but true and sort of hilarious.
Let’s all take a moment to mourn the loss of the 8+ other Panzers listed in the Metal Archives, who now will almost assuredly never amount to anything and kill themselves. From the Tennessee sludge/thrash(?) band with a single 2008 demo to that Spanish one that’s been barely scraping by for over 32 years. None are exempt and courtesy be damned! The real Panzer has arrived.
Accept veterans Herman Frank (guitar) and Stefan Schwarzmann (drums) are teaming up with Destruction bassist/vocalist Schmier for this German supergroup. They’ve signed to Nuclear Blast and their debut, Send Them All to Hell, is set for release on November 28.
Schmier is confident: “If you are a metalhead, you will love Panzer — I’m a 100% sure about it.”

It’s not a lot to go on, but what do you think of this?
