2CD edition of the classic album - now on Peaceville. With its feast of Frost-fuelled riffing, `Panzerfaust' is rightly hailed one of THE classic Darkthrone black metal albums. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

This is not the fastest metal album by far nor is it (by a very long way) the most complex music ever conceived. However, Panzerfaust is a work of genius!
It is the last Darkthrone album to feature Zephyrous on guitar (Nocturno Culto plays bass and "sings") and I doubt that he could ever contribute to a more bizarrely over the top album. There are seven tracks which are easily sorted into three groups.
Three of the tracks are Celtic Frost (circa Morbid Tales) hero worship and anyone who loves CF's early work will appreciate the riffs if not the "singing" (more on that later). They have a very thick guitar sound and are a fitting tribute to a great band.
The final track, "Sno Og Granskog" (translates as "Snow and Spruceforest") sounds like a satanic sermon (or it did until I found out what the title meant!), it features clear vocals, drums and what sounds like a French horn. However it is the blackmetal tracks that make this album truly essential.
The remaining three tracks are the most raw, sick black metal that you will ever hear. This album must be heard for two of these songs alone: "En Vind Av Sorg" ("A Wind Of Sorrow") and "Quintessence". "En Vind Av Sorg" opens the album with a fast dirge of a riff and doesn't drop the pace for 6 minutes. However, the real surprise is when the vocals appear after a few bars - they sound like somebody dying! "Quintessence" made me laugh hysterically initially but I now regard it as one of the best metal songs ever written. It is very slow and monotonous with ridiculous lyrics (written by Count Grishnackh) about a viking warrior's feats of strength and sexual prowess.

This has to be one of the most extensive and intense Black Metal releases out there, from non other than Darkthrone. The content is far than excellent, and the guitar work is disturbing yet magnificent. Fenriz's scream vocals have the power to pierce the eardrums of any black metaller, and no wonder Darkthrone is considered to be one of the best Black Metal bands ever to have existed. Definite MUST-HAVE for any black metal fan. -Digital

Panzerfaust seems to get a little overlooked by the earlier Peaceville albums which is a shame as it stands up with those first three albums.
Some of the tracks are very reminiscent of early Celtic Frost, which is apparently deliberate, and the penultimate track 'Quintesscence' has lyrics by Varg Vikernes and sounds quite 'Filosefem'- esque.
All these 'tribute' style tracks have the definite stamp of Darkthrone on them though which is a plus.
It's also probably one of the most varied Darkthrone albums and is definitely worth getting if you liked the older albums like 'Transylvanian Hunger'

Great Black Metal Album! 18 July 2000
By Eric Troutman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a must for all black metal fans! The song Quintessence is just reason enough to buy this cd! The songs are in a slower mode, then , what you will hear on Transilvanian Hunger. All i can say , if your into TRUE black metal, you must have Darkthrone added to your collection!

Hail Darkthrone! 8 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's tough for me to decide which Darkthrone album is their best and I'm sure most fans of this band would agree. Although critics point to Transylvanian Hunger as their best release, it's tough not to consider Panzerfaust as their best work. The album is noticeably different sounding from A Blaze..., Transylvanian Hunger and Under A Funeral Moon. The guitars are no longer a blur of noise, but they are played in a much more elaborate manner, sometimes played slowly with crushing riffs and at times, even Burzum-ish, especially the Count Grishnackh written song "Quintessence". Nocturno Culto's voice is once again the main attraction on Panzerfaust, his delivery is also slower than on previous albums but the sound is no less darker for it. I point to this album as their last defining moment and really the last album you should own from Darkthrone if you already own all of their albums prior to this one.

The forgotten Darkthrone album 18 Mar 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When discussions of grim, old-school raw black metal come up, Darkthrone is generally the first to be mentioned. Inevitably, the album titles that follow are those of the "Unholy Trinity": A Blaze in the Northern Sky, Under a Funeral Moon, and Transilvanian Hunger. Sometimes, even their death metal album, Soulside Journey, will come up. But somehow, almost always left out of the list is what I consider to be DT's second best album, Panzerfaust ("Blaze" will always be my favourite.) This album follows the same formula of the previous albums, but has slightly better production. Oh, it is still blisteringly cold, and undeniably Darkthrone, but somehow it is much clearer and believe it or not, it just fits. This album is very mature, compositionally, and Nocturno Culto's vocals are as violently visceral as ever. Of particular note on this album is the track "Quintessence." This track houses by far Nocturno Culto's best vocal performance, ever. He sounds so undeniably tortured, and I mean TORTURED! Not SDBM-like Leviathan or Xasthur tortured, but actually pain-filled. There are some moments where he actually sounds near tears, and he says about as many actual words on this track as he does pain-filled wails. It makes me shiver every time I hear it.

I'd recommend this obviously to all fans of DT, as well as fans of black metal in its rawest, most pure state. There's no CoF to be found here, folks, and that is just how it should be. An excellent album that every metalhead should own.

A glacier of ice and fire 21 Sep 2004
By Chet Fakir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While a couple of the songs could have been released on Transylvanian Hunger and are blast beat fast, Darkthrone slowed the tempo way down to a sludgecore grind (think Procreation of the Wicked by Celtic Frost) And it works. Full sounding, yet still necro, Panzerfaust is a ugly, angry listen. The last track is an electronic ambient work with vocals and percussion. Panzerfaust is one of Darkthrone's best works (behind A Blaze... and Transylvanian Hunger) and is well worth getting, as are all of their works previous to this one. On a side note check out their new album Sardonic Wrath which is the best thing they've done since Transylvanian Hunger.

almost tops blaze and hunger 5 April 2004
By NecroYeti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album is amazing, a momument of coldness and bitter hatred. the melodies will get in your head and will not leave. nocturno's voice will grate your ears. this album is celtic frost worship at its best and embodies exactly what anyone could want from black metal- kick ass riffs. every song has a nice hook and flows great. even the last song, a bunch of epic sounding norse meanderings, is a cool listen. this is one of darkthrone's very best albums, top 3 without a doubt.
