Panzerfaust are currently on tour with Belphegor and Cryptopsy, and unfortunately, things took an ugly turn. The Canadian black metal outfit nearly had a dance with death when they were driving through the Northern Pass from Vancouver to Edmonton Canada and ended up hitting a patch of black ice. Their van flipped into a frozen creek off the highway and luckily, the band members were able to escape and there have been no reports of serious injuries.
However, most of their gear and merchandise have been destroyed and their insurance covers none of it. The group set up a PayPal account ([email protected]) and are asking for as many donations as possible. They are unable to attend tonight’s show at the Exchange in Regina, Canada. However, they hope to continue with the remaining tour dates.
Read their full statement below:
“Today we narrowly avoided a swift visit from the angel of death. While driving through the Northern pass from Vancouver to Edmonton we hit black ice – spiralling us into the frozen creek below. Despite being pinned beneath the crushed vehicle, submerged in the frigid water, we managed to crawl from the wreckage; all of us relatively unscathed. Be that as it may, much of our gear and merchandise has been destroyed, and we have been informed that insurance will cover none of it.
Needless to say, our performance in Regina will have to be cancelled. We have every intention of finishing the tour, however, some tremendous financial burdens stand in our way. We humbly ask anyone that can assist us financially in any way to help us see this campaign through. Anything helps, and we would be indebted to you. One way or another, Panzerfaust has every intention of spearheading forward, as our dignity demands it of us.
Any donations can be sent via Paypal to:
May death tremble to take us,
