Posted: September 15, 2017
German thrash metal legends, TANKARD, have released the new version of their previously sold out EP »Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee« today. You can order the EP here: www.nuclearblast.de/tankard 'Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee' is the anthem of the German football club Eintracht Frankfurt and has been played in the stadium for ten years before every home game. The song has now been completely re-recorded by the band. The thrashers were supported by Henni Nachtsheim (Badesalz), Ande Werner (Mundstuhl) and Roy Hammer (Roy Hammer & Die Pralinées), who can be heard in the backing choir. The artwork was designed by cult comic artist Michael Apitz, whose comics have been published for years in the stadium newspaper of Eintracht Frankfurt. Three months ago, TANKARD played the song in front of over 30.000 enthusiastic Frankfurt supporters, a short time before the kick-off of the German cup final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Berlin's Olympic Stadium.
