Remastered re-release of the first compilation album by the legendary German Thrash Metal band.
A good start to check out Tankard is the "Hair Of The Dog" album, which contains several songs off their first three albums and the "Alien" EP.
Together with Sodom the beer destroyers have been around all the time and have neither taken a time out nor changed their style. After a promising start and some fat years at the end of the 80s/beginning of the 90s, followed a long draught. But give up because of that? Nope, back with a vengeance was the motto in the beer camp. Some line-up and label changes later the bunch still is active.
So what makes Tankard different from the rest of the Thrashers? Basically only that they are a lot snottier, simpler and punkier than the others. Cover versions of Hardcore bands such as Gang Green or Spermbirds (which unfortunately are left out on this CD) are proofs for that. But also their own compositions should be a good reason for a high percentage party for fans of Thrash and Punk. Anti alcoholics, which still like the simple, catchy, yet not stupid thrashing will neither be left out from the party.
Beer, women, beer, food, beer, whisky and… beer! It is a decent compilation of their best early works!!
