Heavy metal saviours PÄNZER recently announced the release of their sophomore record entitled Fatal Command on October 6th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. Today the band proudly unveils a special lyric video for ‘We Can Not Be Silenced’, featuring several fellow musician’s mugshots.
“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!”
