Danish death metal mercenaries PANZERCHRIST have set August 13th as the North American release date for "The 7th Offensive".
Although very extreme musically on a constant basis, PANZERCHRIST have never quite done the same album twice. The 7th Offensive shows a slightly more melodic and evil approach to the guitars; enhancing the grey, sinister feel of a battlefield. The band's intended bleak sound was without a doubt achieved. The album also sees PANZERCHRIST return to the ultra-guttural and pure death metal styled vocals. As the band says, "THE WAR IS OVER. LETS START A NEW ONE. DEATH FOREVER, PANZER!"
The 7th Offensive was recorded at three different studios. Guitars and bass were recorded in the Igloo by HR Swan, drums at AMP studio by Jens Förster and Markus Ziemer and vocals and the final mix were done in Death Island Studio with engineer Marco Angioni.
