Soul Collector


Hey, what have we here? Some Danish guys singin 'death metal in German, because (and here we quote) "death metal lyrics actually sound very cool and brutal pronounced in German." Radical! Panzerchrist play pseudo-Romantic melodies at mach speed, dropping in dialogue samples from old war flicks whenever they feel like upping the freak-out factor. Really quite gorgeous after its own fashion, Soul Collector harshes mellows for breakfast. Not strictly necessary, but pretty great nonetheless.
