Filth Hounds Of Hades
You probably have heard of them, seen a used album, if you're old
enough , possibly seen their videos for "Turn Your Head Around", or
"Crazy Horses"(!), but TANK's debut album, Filth Hounds.. originally
released in 1982, is a must have for any die hard metal head. This is
head bangin' and rockin' in the MOTORHEAD vein (Fast Eddie Clarke
produced). Algy Ward's vocals are rough, but sort of like the songs,
streamlined. The only disappointment in this CD is the exclusion of
two tracks. The original vinyl came with a bonus 7" single w/Don't
Walk Away(live), and The Snake. (The only way you can hear Don't Walk
Away is on a SODOM single, and they cover it brilliantly.) Despite no
lyric sheet (short bio and discography instead) this is a solid CD.
All good songs, faves still are Run Like Hell, Turn Your Head Around,
Heavy Artillery, the strangely titled (He Fell In Love With A)
Stormtrooper, and my theme song, Blood, Guts And Beer!!
