I really need to add some TANKARD to NoLifeTilMetal.com. What would you all say was their best and worst albums?

You'll probably enjoy most anything from Tankard ult. Most of their albums are pretty similar, though Kings Of Beer or Disco Destroyer are probably considered weak.

I'd suggest Beast Of Bourbon, The Beauty And The Beer, Chemical Invasion, or The Morning After.

Chemical Invasion (personal fave), The Morning After, Stone Cold Sober, & Zombie Attack are the best imho.

Disco Destroyer was indeed their weakest, but still better than much of what some other bands put out.

Tankard doesn't have a weak album. But my faves would be The Morning After, Chemical Invasion, Beauty and the Beer!

ZOMBIE ATTACK is my fave album by the band together with their first two demos (HEAVY METAL VANGUARD and ALCOHOLIC METAL). After that i would say all their albums before FAT UGLY AND LIVE. Maybe its a good thing for you to buy their dvd FAT UGLY AND STILL ALIVE becuase their are many songs on it from all their eras.

Could somone describe Tankard to us? All I know is that they have an attitude (poverty metal?)...but are they like Motorhead?; The Rods?, Running Wild?, Ironboss?, Ugly Kid Joe ?(hey, a few good songs); Manitoba's Wild Kingdom?, Rose Tattoo? Tank?...what do they sound like?

Tankard is just good ol' fashioned full-throttle thrash. They are kind of a mix of the Bay Area and German thrash scenes, as they didn't strictly have the sound of Kreator, Sodom or Destruction at the time, but also never really sounded exactly like Forbidden, Death Angel or Slayer either.

Most of their lyrics are just about drinking, partying and having fun, though on occasion they do mingle with the odd serious topic (political corruption, poverty, crime, etc).

lyricly they can be ridiculous at times, & when they do throw in a serious song, you don't take it seriously either.

they like their beer.. i can tell you that much for sure. Very Happy

Since I am a fan of Capricorn (Grinder), early Running Wild , and Nasty Savage; do you think I might like them then?

You can't miss, not a single bad album in their collection. My favorite is Zombie Attack (their first album), followed by Disco Destroyer. However, it seems that they're releasing weaker and weaker albums since DD, but they're still great!

Got a chance to an interview with Gerre 3 years ago, freaking hilarious guy Smile I asked him how many beers he usually drinks a day and he said that he doesn't drink beer at all, that it's just an image haha Smile Well, he almost fell of the stage when they were playing Smile Not to mention their guitar player Andy; two friends went to him after the show and said "you were great"; and the he replies: "Thanks, but now I have to puke!". And he turns around and puke Smile

So for the start, Zombie Attack would be probably the finest. I think that it was rereleased as 2 on 1 with their second, Chemical Invasion?

I also think the ALIEN ep is cool as well.

I think that was a joke from the singer because if you look at the dvd you will see that he drinks beer all the time, without stop🤘. Also i remember watching some old vhs tapes with interviews where he drinks all the time. Look at his body and you will see that he drinks very much beer:D

I like everything Tankard did up to (and including) The Morning After. I would say that all of those are essential thrash albums.

I would also definitely say that of all the numerous songs called "Thrash 'Til Death," Tankard's was the finest.

Basically, stick with their 80's material. Of the three 80's albums (Chemical Invasion, Zombie Attack, and The Morning After), Zombie Attack is my personal favorite, and an excellent starting point to an underrated band.

I picked up today the reissue of chemical invasion. Great album. I have been investing a lot into tankard the last few years, and am now the proud owner of 11 tankard albums.

Worth mentioning that their discography is being reissued in case you missed them in the past.

I still need a few of their releases, like 5 or 6 of them. I really like everyone I do have. Good quality thrash albeit some rather silly lyrics, for the most part.

I remember walking into a small record shop in turkey and spotting this one along with the tankard, two faced and zombie attack. Of course, i purchased all of them.

My cd version of the morning after has the alien ep on it. Great album. You will love it.

Definitely a joke from him. When I saw them live years back he was SMASHING down beers like water! Laughing
