Tankard

Germany's self-proclaimed "Kings of Beer," Tankard are one of the few thrash metal bands that never took themselves too seriously, pouring a lengthy discography down listeners' gullets over the years, filled with furious moshing and a barrel of laughs. Originally founded in the city of Frankfurt circa 1982, they initially considered names like Avenger and Vortex before looking through an English dictionary for a word that defined "beer mug" and finding Tankard. Thus, their future course was set and after a few years of rehearsals under the tutelage of early thrash classics by Metallica, Slayer, and their own countrymen like Kreator and Destruction, Tankard were ready to take their best shot. Signing with the Noise label (home to Helloween, Grave Digger, Celtic Frost, and others) in 1986, bandmembers, Andreas "Gerre" Geremia (vocals), Andy Bulgaropulos (guitar), Axel Katzmann (guitar), Frank Thorwarth (bass), and Oliver Werner (drums) went on a recording tear that produced 1986's Zombie Attack, 1987's Chemical Invasion, 1988's The Morning After, 1989's Alien EP, 1990's The Meaning of Life, and 1991's Fat, Ugly and Still (A)live, barely changing their style, emptying their mugs, or pausing for breath along the way. 1992 saw the arrival of new drinking buddy/drummer Arnulf Tunn for the ironically named Stone Cold Sober LP, but not even Tankard could weather the grunge revolution unscathed, and the next few years brought faltering releases (1994's Two Faced, 1995's The Tankard, 1998's, erm, Disco Destroyer), unstable lineups, and even deviations from form to introduce punkier elements. Thankfully, 2000's back-to-their-strengths King of Beers set the Tankard ship to rights, and the retooled lineup of vocalist Geremia, bassist Thorwarth, plus new guitarist Andreas Gutjahr and drummer Olaf Zissel, has kept the solid thrash, good humor, and better beer flowing steadily ever since, with albums including 2004's Beast of Bourbon, 2006's The Beauty and the Beer, 2012's Girl Called Cerveza and 2015's Rest in Beer. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Don't read this because it actually works, you will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2days. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary.
