“Faster than Metallica, more powerful than Motörhead, and funnier than Rammstein” - that’s how the prestigious
German newspaper DIE WELT described Jan Zehrfeld and his group Panzerballett. With a unique combination of jazz
and heavy metal the band deconstructs music genres like few others. Few German recordings have caused such a
national and international furore as did Starke Stücke, Panzerballett’s 2008 debut album for ACT. Hart Genossen von
ABBA bis Zappa is the stylistic anarchists’ eagerly anticipated second escapade. Musical purists and the “jazz police” will
despair, but emancipated listeners will walk away enchanted with smiles on their faces.
“Very well done. Normally, I don't like people re-arranging my father's music but this was a pleasant surprise.”
Dweezil Zappa, 2010
"What you are doing is truly innovative and refreshing, not to say ingenious."
Mattias IA Eklundh, Freak Kitchen, 2010
