“Satan fucked a Panzer and the offshoot is TankZilla”. Or so it seems. Well, this is what really happened in the Eindhoven grit: after Peter Pan Speedrock went tits up, singer and guitar player Peter van Elderen hooked op with former Wolfskop drummer Marcin Hurkmans. As soon as these music junkies started jamming they got on like a house on fire: it felt as if their motor skills were connected. This two-headed creature wrecks like a tank and packs Godzilla-sized riffs and beats. In the same vein as Repomen, Peter’s short-lived but heavier-than-thou Roadburn alumni, the tarmac grooves are scorching. TankZilla goes full-tilt boogie!

About their debut album, TankZilla comment: “As we write this, it’s hard to realize the long road we’ve traveled to get to this debut full length. We started rehearsals 5 years ago with absolutely no ambitions. We were without bands at the time, both cranking amps and slaying drums at the local rehearsal space, so it felt only natural to jam together. Nobody could have guessed what was about to happen, ’cause after we decided to join forces, all hell broke loose. While shows were growing at a fast rate, we started finetuning the ‘TankZilla sound’. Not long after, we were invited to perform at the almighty Roadburn festival where we released our first 7 inch. Fast forwarding through the pandemic, we finished writing a dozen songs. And here you have it. Recorded in Belgium, no Dutch beers involved, no fillers, no fancy stuff. Just the result of true & pure rock’n’roll style recording sessions. Put it on and crank the shit up ’cause this one goes to eleven!”

»TankZilla« was recorded live at the Ultra Elektric Studio by Alessio Di Turi, assisted by Cedric Maes. It was mixed at Anker Studio by Peter van Elderen, and mastered in the Void by Pieter Kloos. Back cover photo by Paul Verhagen. Artwork by Loudmouth (Robert Adriaansen).
