We’ve written about Tankard before, and here we are again – probably because they are an obvious choice for this site, having made a 30 year long career out of writing songs primarily about beer.

The German thrashers have a new album which will be out next week, titled A Girl Called Cerveza. A few reviews are out ahead of the release and the album seems to be dividing opinion. Harley at That Devil Music says that “Tankard aren’t doing anything earthshattering or groundbreaking here – just sticking to their guns” in a fairly positive piece on the album. Steel Druhm at Angry Metal Guy was less complementary, going as far as to say “with a ratio of three decent songs out of ten, there are obviously issues here aplenty”.

Check out the video below for the title track and tell us in the comments: good song about beer or bad?
