Tank 86 - Behold

"The instrumental fourpiece TANK86 hails from the south of Holland, where they founded in 2005. Their first demo came out as a 3-split with two no longer existing bands, and sold all copies out in no time. This was a sign. The band geared up with a new drummer in the summer of 2007, and worked their way to their first album, the self released 'Behold' which saw the light of day in January 2008 which they are touring and promoting right now.

TANK86 is a pure live band, and they like their verses filled with lyrical great landscapes, riff-fest’s in their choruses, and enjoy pounding monumental big breaks, lacing it all together with odd note groupings and flaky timings. It is all about trying to master being in a band, rocking out, wielding axes and bashing walls of cymbals. Trying to get over spandex and dumb simple electronic beats, to work up a sweat again, like good musicians, and slaughter every last bit of thinking you've had about singers all together.

They’re just flexing muscles, it just started. TANK86 is here to stay. " ~ MySpace
