About the Artist
At the beginning there is A" like album title". Even before the first note has been written down in summer 2005, Frankurt `s cult thrashers Tankard have decided to call their next album The Beauty And The Beer".
This might seem a little bit unconventional, but it truly is tradition among the guys around singer Gerre. "First we have the name of the album, then the coverartwork and then some songs are written around that", he describes with a smile in his face. "That `s how things work with Tankard." And it has never been the wrong way so far. Especially the last years have been extremely successful for the boys being able to gather even more respect than before. Without any doubt Tankard are an institution - not only in the German metal scene. For almost 25 years (2007 will be the big anniversary) the German tankards have been showing the world what they can offer - and what they will offer. Cool and flowing like freshly poured out beer this combo has been running. Without seeming to be old-fashioned or bad tasting.
And so we have, with The Beauty And The Beer", again an album that Tankard `s discography can be very proud of. Full of thrashing power all songs are grooving like hell. Strong choruses and good mood are the big plus of this album and show the high art of brewing music the band is able to do.
