Panzerballett

PB-beton_1 (Kopie)As complicated as possible – as comprehensible as necessary.

PANZERBALLETT sounds as if a jazz combo would cover Meshuggah. Or like Meshuggah would play jazz standards. Simply, as if Panzers would do a ballet dance. The only difference is that the stage or orchestra pit will stand it without devastated. What’s going to happen to the ears or synapses of ingenuous listeners is written on another page. The title of the new album surely is a consistent tip of the sustainable consequence of consuming the band’s music. The album has been released via the Gentle Art of Music label. Reason enough for a chat with mastermind Jan Zehrfeld.

Solaris Special – Interview with Attila Kollár

solarislogo

On a wet afternoon on the day before the Solaris concert, Attila Kollár took time out from his busy schedule to travel to the Continental Hotel in Budapest where I was staying, to provide an extensive interview for DPRP to cover numerous topics including the bands history and future plans.

He was charming throughout and eager to answer the questions as fully as he could. It was a fascinating experience. Our detailed discussion ended some fifty five minutes later and I hope that DPRP readers will find his answers as interesting as I did.
