About Tankard

Germany's self-proclaimed "Kings of Beer," Tankard, alongside Kreator, Destruction, and Sodom, are considered part of the upper echelon of the country's Teutonic thrash metal scene. Since debuting in 1986 with Zombie Attack, the band's signature blend of punk, thrash, and speed metal has remained unchanged, with only a few lineup changes to speak of. Striking a balance between humor and technical acumen, Tankard's blue-collar thrash has endured for over three decades -- the band's 18th studio album, Pavlov’s Dawgs, appeared in 2022 -- with highlights arriving via 1995's The Tankard, 2004's Beast of Bourbon, and 2017's One Foot in the Grave.
