"War Machine" (Metal Mind; 2010)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Tank's album War Machine is pure unadulterated metal fun. It's classic metal in the veins of Anvil, Saxon, Judas Priest ... bands like that. "War Machine" is solid heavy metal through and through. It probably doesn't quite fall into the thrash category, but it's great pure metal with lots of speedy guitars, macho vocals, and altogether, a lot of fun to listen to.

Yeah, there's nothing new and fresh here. You wouldn't want there to be. And there's only one track that's slows things down a little too much ("After All"), but, otherwise, if you're a classic heavy metal fan, you will simply love Tank's devastating War Machine.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
