NEW ALBUM RELEASE!
APRIL 26th 2019
TANK have been busy in the studio recently putting the final polish on their latest metal offering which is certain to excite their legions of Filth Hounds around the world.
RE-IGNITION is a tribute to the early days of TANK and features 11 classic TANK songs chosen from the first 4 albums which were originally released in the early 80’s. (Filth Hounds of Hades, Power of the Hunter, This Means War, Honour and Blood).
The album will be released worldwide (ex Japan) through Cleopatra Records on APRIL 26th 2019.
The Japanese release will be through Rubicon Music.
RE-IGNITION also features two very special guest appearances. Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth and thrash legend Tom Angelripper of Sodom both add their own unique style and energy to this already formidable album.
Many bands have admitted to have been influenced by TANK’s unique style of punk edged metal which was the trademark sound on the early albums. Those bands include Metallica, Nirvana and Sodom to name a few.
Many of the songs from those classic albums are still present in our live set and we are constantly being asked by our fans if we would ever consider re-recording any of them. Those original recordings are timeless and will always be there but we thought what harm can it do to give them a full metal makeover and inject new life into them. They deserve it!
We approached US label Cleopatra Records to see if they would be interested in releasing the album. They jumped on it straight away and suggested the possibility of adding some special guests on the album. Maybe some artists who were influenced by TANK back in the 80’s. Great idea! We recruited Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth to record a version of ‘Shellshock’ in his own unique style and also German thrash legend Tom Angelripper fromSodom who has taken ‘Power of the Hunter’ to another insane level.
