Panzerfaust are a band from Ontario, Canada that plays a very dissonant and aggressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "The Suns Of Perdition I: War, Horrid War" which will be released in June by Eisenwald.
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds later before going into a heavier musical direction. At times the music also gets very dissonant sounding while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Deep growls can also be heard in some parts of the music while the faster sections of the songs also add in a decent amount of blast beats. The riffs also add in a decent amount of melody along with some spoken word parts also being added into certain sections of the recording and when tremolo picking is utilized it gives the music more of a raw feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dissonant and technical style. Clean vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses a brief use of war samples and clean playing can also be heard. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover examines the malign episodes of the last century, shining a light on difficult subject matter using a begrimed philosophical lens along with some inspiration from George Orwell.
In my opinion Panzerfaust are a very great sounding aggressive and dissonant black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stalingrad, Massengrab" and "The Men Of No Men's Land". 8 out of 10.
