Teutonic thrash metal giants TANKARD from the holy land of Germany has released their second single, which also happens to be the title track, “One Foot In The Grave” off their new upcoming new album of the same name. The album, “One Foot In The Grave“, coming out on June 2nd, 2017, via Nuclear Blast Records, will be their 17th feather addition on their massive discography. One of the ‘Big Four of Teutonic Thrash’ in the German scene, TANKARD have been consistent and a flag bearer in their genre among the other likes of Kreator, Sodom and Destruction. Singing about alcohol since their inception they have a massive fan following all over the world, all singing and headbanging in the glory and name of alcohol in an unison. Even after three decades of thrashing around, wasted concerts and drenched in beer they have not decided to stop this freak train, which in itself is extremely remarkable and commendable!
Gerre had to something say in the official press release of this song and here it is,
“As Aaron was also already responsible for the comic clip of ‘Fooled By Your Guts’, we have spared neither cost nor effort to fly him in from Australia for recording this new clip with us. This clip is on the one hand really ironic because of our age but on the other hand also a bit sad. Everything is only temporary! This time we wanted a video without the usual hopping-around with our instruments, we just want to try something new! I think we managed this quite well. Have fun with ‘One Foot In The Grave’! Gerre”
Though the title track sounds a bit stale to me, I still will keep my hopes up for the new record, cause why not!? It’s fuckin’ thrash metal. “Even if a lot has changed over the last three decades, one thing has remained the same: TANKARD are four metal maniacs from Frankfurt – authentic, loud and sometimes drunk.
And this will likely stay the same for the next 35 years!”
