TANKARD Issue Lyric Video For ‘Syrian Nightmare’ Track
June 6th, 2017

German thrash metal group Tankard have released an official lyric video for the track ‘Syrian Nightmare’, which can be viewed below.

Frontman Gerre commented: “This is a song with a really serious message: It’s about those catastrophic conditions in Syria where countries from all over the world try to enforce their power interests. And as always, the people suffer endlessly. That’s what makes us enormously sad, but also angry since everyone’s just watching; massacres become a daily routine. I realised this even more when I was recording the song’s vocals, so they turned out very aggressive.”

Tankard issued 17th full-length studio album One Foot In The Grave on June 2nd, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

The third and final track-by-track breakdown video for the outing has been released and can also be viewed below.
