Panzerballett – Breaking Brain

I tell you, seriously, in my nightmare of nightmares this music is the soundtrack.

In that nightmare, I’m tied to a chair and forced to listen to this and my heart explodes because it’s pounding so heavily because of the influx of disturbing rhythmic patterns (or lack of same).

My brain gets multiple allergic reactions when the pretentious, scattered soloing in this jazzy fusion hell takes off.
And then there’s the saxophone. Oh, don’t even get me started on the saxophones! A track called ‘The Saxdiktator’? That is just about the biggest run away sign you can put in front of me.

Although I am cerebrally challenged beyond my capabilities with this German instrumental ensemble, I can hear that they are technically flawless and tighter than a chicken’s arse, but, honestly, give me guts, gore, rape and murder anytime – this makes my heart and brain explode in a way I do not appreciate.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
