Tankard is one of the craziest bands the world has faced up ever. I do like always their insistence aboutcontinuing to write and record in the same vein: fast metalsongs in honour of alcohol. Get some answers about the music business and heavy metal from an old hand who can play what he wants along with his beer-fellas and don’t give a s***t. Beer kings’ Gerre caught up with Metal-Rules to talk about the new album, R.I.B. (=Rest In Beer!) their craziness, Gambrinus (the traditional god of Beer), iTunes, Greek metal scene and overall: Beer!

While 70000TONS OF METAL, The World’s Biggest Floating Heavy Metal Festival has left Göteborg and is now sailing through the Skagerak their scouting party in Germany could not pass by Frankfurt am Main without picking up a huge TANKARD of beer that will celebrate it’s 30th birthday on board next year. Then they went onwards to The Netherlands to get GOD DETHRONED who will play one of their very last shows on board 70000TONS OF METAL 2012.

And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!
