TANKARD – “A GIRL CALLED CERVEZA”
Full on heavy metal assault that make Enforcer look like a bunch of wimps! These Polish firebrands whip up a storm with occult themes and the shrill vocals of Marta Gabriel which could strip paint. While ‘Medicus Animarium’ et all are fantastically theatrical to the point of bordering on pompous, they have some riffs worthy of prime time Judas Priest. The guitars are heavier than your standard power metal fair with guest appearances from David Bower of Hell and Vader man Piotr Wiwczarek to peel off a few razor sharp licks. While their music may be a complete throwback to twenty five years ago the execution is so passionate you can’t help but bang your head!
