Heavy metal saviours PÄNZER will release their sophomore album, “Fatal Command”, on October 6th via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order the album here, and watch a lyric video for ‘We Can Not Be Silenced’ below.
The special lyric video for ‘We Can Not Be Silenced’ features several fellow musicians in the form of mugshots.
Schmier stated: “It is a hot topic: How much of your personal freedom are you willing to sacrifice for our safety? When I dived into this subject and the whole Edward Snowden story, it has really caught me and I had to write a song about it. Is he a hero or a traitor? He is a very smart man for sure, that showed the world the truth about the monitored surveillance system worldwide. The idea to bring fellow friends & musicians into the lyric video was very exciting – we are all free minds and global citizens of this world, I hate to see all we have achieved drifting apart again. The song itself is a really catchy powerful smasher with my fave solo from Pontus of the whole record. I hope people enjoy the music and the topic itself is something worth reading about. I have a lot of respect for free spirits and mankind needs them to NOT drift into chaos & war again. I know many metalheads don’t wanna deal with politics but this affects all of us in the end!”
