Germany’s self-proclaimed “Kings of Beverage,” Tankard are mostly of the thrash metal rings that never took themselves too seriously, pouring an extended discography straight down listeners’ gullets over time, filled up with furious moshing along with a barrel of laughs. Originally founded in the town of Frankfurt circa 1982, they primarily considered brands like Avenger and Vortex before searching through an British dictionary to get a word that described “beverage mug” and locating Tankard. Hence, their future training course was established and over time of rehearsals beneath the tutelage of early thrash classics by Metallica, Slayer, and their very own countrymen like Kreator and Devastation, Tankard were prepared to take their finest shot. Signing using the Sound label (house to Helloween, Grave Digger, Celtic Frost, among others) in 1986, bandmembers, Andreas “Gerre” Geremia (vocals), Andy Bulgaropulos (electric guitar), Axel Katzmann (electric guitar), Frank Thorwarth (bass), and Oliver Werner (drums) continued a recording rip that created 1986’s Zombie Strike, 1987’s Chemical substance Invasion, 1988’s The Morning hours After, 1989’s Alien EP, 1990’s THIS IS of Lifestyle, and 1991’s Fats, Ugly but still (A)live, hardly changing their design, emptying their mugs, or pausing for breathing on the way. 1992 noticed the appearance of brand-new drinking pal/drummer Arnulf Tunn for the ironically called Stone Cool Sober LP, however, not also Tankard could climate the grunge trend unscathed, and another couple of years brought faltering produces (1994’s Two Confronted, 1995’s The Tankard, 1998’s, erm, Disco Destroyer), unpredictable lineups, and also deviations from type to introduce punkier components. Fortunately, 2000’s back-to-their-strengths Ruler of Beers arranged the Tankard dispatch to rights, as well as the retooled lineup of vocalist Geremia, bassist Thorwarth, plus fresh guitarist Andreas Gutjahr and drummer Olaf Zissel, offers held the solid thrash, great laughter, and better ale flowing steadily since, with albums including 2004’s Beast of Bourbon, 2006’s THE WONDER and the Ale, 2012’s Girl Known as Cerveza and 2015’s Rest in Ale.
