The story of TANKARD is an exceptional one: the thrash metal force from Frankfurt, Germany has been around since the early 80’s, spearheading a wave of German thrash bands who became successful worldwide (Kreator, Destruction, Sodom…). And while a lot of other bands struggled, split up or came back for reunions, TANKARD never had these problems. They have always been there. And they’ve kept their worldwide fanbase for all of these years, delivering strong album after strong album. When you think of beer and thrash metal, the name TANKARD is the resounding response.

About Author

I'm a 40+ music fan. Fond mostly of rock and metal - my staple musical food delights. Originally from Northern Ireland, I am now based in the UK-Manchester. I have a hectic musical existence with regular shows and interviews. Been writing freelance for five years now with several international websites. Passionate about what I do, I have been fortunate already to interview many of my all-time musical heroes. My music passion was first created by seeing Status Quo at the tender age of 15. While I still am passionate about my rock and metal, I have found that with age my taste has diversified so that now I am actually dipping into different musical genres and styles for the first time.
