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'
