For almost 25 years TANKARD (2007 will be the big anniversary) has been drinking and Trashing the hell out of their fans and while we wait for the anniversary the German Thrashers are about to release a brand new album called “The Beauty and the Beer”.

If you hate everything about TANKARD don’t read any further. If you like everything about them … go on! To be honest I can do this very short… Nothing and absolutely nothing has changed in the Tankard camp.

We still get Thrashing songs about drinking and partying and they still sound exactly the same as always. And I’m glad that nothing has changed. Take a listen to tracks like; “We Still Drink the old Ways”, “Shaken not Stirred”, “Frankfurt: We need more Beer” and the my favourite track “Metaltometal” and you know what I mean.

So… no more words needed… I don’t feel like writing anymore today… I’m not in the mood for it. But one thing is for sure; I know what I’m in the mood for… To drink and to Thrash my brains out to the sound of this album… That’s what I’m in the mood for!
