Panzerpappa is a contemporary Norwegian progressive rock band based in Oslo.


The band plays instrumental RIO or progressive rock with a humoristic twist ("Progressive Rock with a friendly face", in their own words), which is often reminiscent of inspirational precursors such as Samla Mammas Manna, King Crimson, Henry Cow, Univers Zero, Happy The Man and Frank Zappa.[1][2]

Panzerpappa have released five studio albums since their inception in 1998.
