Tank: This Means War (Re-release)

The re-release of the third album by this 80's heavy metal band, continues right where their previous disc leaves off. Thunderous stadium rock and roll with no let up from start to end. Adding a second guitarist (Mick Tucker) on this disc only added to the powerhouse sound that is Tank. Harsh and very heavy by the standards of the day, this band is realizing now what should have been their due at the time. Metal Mind has capitalized on this resurgence of interest in the band with a series of gold disc releases including bonus tracks. For those that crave the anthem like rock and roll of that era, this is one of the albums that helped create it! Even though it did not get wide acclaim, it is now thought of as an influential work to other bands of the era as well as a tasty treat for those who are fans of the group.

Using war as the theme for the brutal guitar thrashing that they hammer you with, it seems as appropriate as any concept for the metal savagery that they bestow upon you. Fist pumping, foot stompin' rock and roll is what you asked for and that is just what you get. This album takes no prisoners. So if you want something to throw into the CD changer in between Van Halen and Moterhead, here it is. Just skip the useless bonus tracks.
