Just get it

"After the release of two excellent albums ("Filth hounds of hades" and "Power of the hunter"), Ward and the Brabbs brother recruited a second guitar player - Mick Tucker - and recorded their third album titled "This means war". With this album, Tank continued their raw, unpolished but still melodic heavy metal. Even if the production could be better, there's plenty of enjoyable stuff here. "Just like something from hell", "Laughing in the face of death", "This means war", "Echoes of a distand battle" and "If we go (we go down fighting)" are all high class metal tunes from the eara of New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and if you are a fan of early Iron Maiden or Motorhead, my guess is that you might find this album irresistible. Get it and crank it up!"
One of the best underground metal bands ever!

"These guys are HEAVY! Springing from the late 70's/early 80's underground metal scene they were found in all of the purest's collections. When Metallica was still that little known band these guys were assaulting the senses of countless headbanging, beer-swilling ruffians. The first song of the album says it all, "Just like something from...hell." It is a relentless bounding of guitar, drum, and bass rythem. The title track, "This means war" contines in the same vein drving you into submission. Their multi-album theme of war and miltary makes Tank a great musical outlet for those seeking a hard-driving onslaught of power...I can't recommend them any more than I already have...a must have for anyone who loves pure, hard metal..."
