Haaa Thrash Metal, the big and ugly musicians, the girls, the furious pits and the moshers and evidently the beers… what a beautiful musical world. Beautiful, but also really funny especially if you're watching the new DVD, "Fat And Ugly And Still (A)live", of one of the oldest band from Germany, Tankard. If you like the band, this is a must…

I will be honest in general, I'm more into "American" Thrash and even if Tankard is a really old band, I just discovered their music with this DVD. But their really effective music, simple on a hand but so catchy on the other side was a really good surprise for me. Clearly more oriented toward the "punk" attitude (musically speaking too) than the others Thrash bands from Germany, I must confess that this DVD caught my attention and I had a look on their precedent release and do you know what? This is probably a good point…

The DVD is "full" of great things. First, you'll be able to watch an excellent concert with 24 songs!!! Yeah, you're not dreaming the show is long and that's great because we don't want to buy DVD with a poor show of only ten songs. Ok, the image is not perfect sometime and it moves a lot so it's not so easy to watch the show but at least it's really dynamic and it fits perfectly with the music of the band, and as you can see in the track list, all their hits are in the set-list.

Also, you'll be able to find, an interview (too bad, it's in German and without any subtitle so it will be something only for the people who speak the language), a gallery, all the video-clips of the band, and there is two DVD. The second one, features a lot of "Outtakes" and evidently a lot of videos shooted in France, Japan, Italy, Greece and etc… Honestly, it's hard to ask something more when you wanna buy a musical DVD and I'm sure that the fans of Tankard, if they don't already have it, will be happy to know that their favourite band did something really classy…

With a lot of 2nd degree and auto derision, they guys of Tankard released a really funny but excellent DVD. It's long, there is everything that you want to have on a DVD and believe me it's the perfect present for the fans of the band. If you like Thrash and Tankard, this is a must!!!
