Tankard: ” Metal, Futbol, Beers, Girls and … more Beers

Tankard is a thrash metal band from Frankfurt am Main, Germany, founded in 1982

The band has continuously made songs and records in the same style they started out with – fast metal songs in honor of alcohol. Thus they claim to have invented a new genre called “alcoholic metal”.

They are self-proclaimed “Kings of Beer” in honour of the folkloric character Gambrinus.

A tankard is a form of drinkware consisting of a large, roughly cylindrical, drinking cup with a single handle. Tankards are usually made of silver, pewter, or glass, but can be made of other materials, for example wood, ceramic or leather.

A 1970’s TV advertising campaign for Whitbread beer features a pub landlord spinning a tall tale to an American tourist, who suspiciously asks: “Are you really Lord Tankard?”.
