I long for you every single hour I long for you with every draw of breath To listen to your voice when you are gently talking Makes me feel eternal bliss. I am of ancient manners Believe in ancient rites Got some old-fashioned present For You, my love, tonight.
Fistful of Love! My mind is free I found a hidden treasure That makes me see And life is endless pleasure [Chorus:] It's endless pleasure! It's endless pleasure! I'm rolling, I'm reeling Scratch 'till my skin is peeling! Cold sweat soaks all my covers And in my bed I'm wheeling!
I'm twisting, I'm shaking, I feel my soul is breaking! I'm tossing and I'm turning But still my mind keeps yearning!
My body's slowly dying! And as my heart stops beating Breath ceases with a sighing! Our brain cells call for help Hygiene's a stranger to us, we're Dead Men Drinking! We're Dead Men Drinking! Maybe delirious But still on stage and thrashing, we're Dead Men Drinking! Kill Alien Kill - You're going down, I'll break your neck! Die Alien Die - Revenge is sweet, I'm on my way! Kill Alien Kill - This green drunk bastard has to pay!
It reminds a bit of Overkill since the bass lines can be heard very well, which is of course a good thing, Riffs abound, obviously, since like I've said about twenty times already this is thrash and good thrash.
There isn't a weak point on the album except maybe the outro 'We're Coming Back' which is intended to be silly anyway. The whole album thrashes, chugs, never getting repetitive, which is an exploit for Tankard.
Looks like they're aging well, like good beer I mean wine. Hard to believe they can come up with so many good ideas at once after all these years. So the bottom line is, this is better than anything else they've done, so you should of course get it immediately, unless you have a problem with thrash, beer, or both at once, in which case you should seek professional help.
The year of has sparked the rebirth of many old famous thrashers of the past: Hirax, Exodus, Death Angel, Heathen. Tankard has never been dead and this is a no comeback album, because the preceding album was not a weak one. Beast of Bourbon Is Thrash to the bone: imagine B-Day played faster, heavier and more aggressively and there you go. Some general information about the album. Catchy songs and variety of material make this album stand out among the other releases by Tankard.
Production on this album is clear with very intense bass. Every song has drive. Dominating tempo is fast. Lots of tempo changes and interesting rhythm patterns.
Hardcore influence in this album is obvious. Guitars sound is distorted and they are tuned lower then usual, typical for the new generation of Thrash Metal. There is no lack in riffs: here they are mostly killer and manage to change numerously in course of song. Riff tempos vary from slow to fast with the last dominating. Solos on this album are very well executed, well structured and melodic. Melodies are skillfully woven here and there. For example, one guitar plays some riffs and the other one plays melody.
Bass on this album is also heavily distorted. Bass parts are rather complex and from time to time bass guitar plays solo parts.
Bass tends to live its own life on the album. Drumming here is insane: straight-in-the-face attitude backed by blastbeats and lightning fast tempos. Double bass is used. On this album, he has done a good job, I think it is on the best he has ever done. Lyrics deal with already classical themes of drinking, drugs, metal, some are socially oriented and of coarse, they do not lack touch of humor and sarcasm.
