Tank Albums To Be Re-Issued This September

Metal Mind Productions reports:

"Metal Mind Productions presents re-releases of three full-length albums from the discography of TANK - one of the most influential formations which emerged in the beginnings of the N.W.O.B.H.M. madness. Power Of Hunter, This Means War and Honour & Blood will be available in new digipak editions limited to 2,000 copies each.

"Power Of Hunter - Re-release of Tank's second studio album from 1982. The album, released during Tank's tour alongside the immensely popular band DIAMOND HEAD, featured a fairly similar musical style as on the debut, although some of the material was definitely slower and more rock-oriented. One of the main reasons for that was the constant comparison of the band to MOTÖRHEAD, which after some time became really annoying for Tank. Incl. 'Walking Barefoot Over Glass' and 'T.A.N.K.' - true highlights for Tank. New edition includes 3 bonus tracks!

"This Means War - Re-release of Tank's third studio album from 1983. The album to this day is considered one of Tank's best releases. It showed a definitely heavier side of the band, revealing also some more ambitious compositions. A good example of Tank's progress is the use of keyboards, something that would be fairly impossible on the previous album. With This Means War the group proved that they were a far more serious act that they might have been perceived - songs like 'Just Like Something From Hell', 'Hot Lead Cold Steel' and '(If We Go) We Go Down Fighting' were masterfully written and showcased some very impressive skills of all of the band members. New edition includes 3 bonus tracks!

"Honour & Blood - Re-release of Tank's fourth studio album from 1984. This time Tank took out all the commercial elements from their music - keyboards or over-melodic interludes completely disappeared. Features the surprising cover version of a 60's soul/r'n'b classic by ARETHA FRANKLIN - 'Chain Of Fools' and the characteristic 'W.M.L.A.', strongly differing in style from the rest of the material. New edition includes 1 bonus track!

"All three titles were digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc. The release date is scheduled for September 22nd in Europe and October 28th in the US (via MVD)."
