Andreas "Gerre" Geremia comments on each song on the album Vol(l)ume
Warp - This song has a great opener with that soft, yet silent
intro. The chorus is very catchy as well. In effect, this is a weird story
about a guy travelling back in time to kill himself! This is definitely
one of my favourite songs on this album!
For Fools - This may not exactly be a 100% thrash song, but it
really may be one of the highlights on the album. I encourage you to check
out our video clip on You Tube. It is very funny. This song is about a
fictitious band who has their own rules, and then breaks them all the
Snatchers (The Hippo Effect) - This track is way more thrashing
than the previous 'Rules For Fools'. There is some great guitar work by
Plague (BP) - This is a very hard song, but it is not all that
fast, Essentially, it is more mid-tempo with some very aggressive vocals.
It is a critical song about the catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico.
In Nowhere - This is really a typical Tankard song. It is also
quite personal because it deals with a situation where I was kicked off
the plane one day for being too drunk, hahahah! I assure you, this event
cost me a lot of money, I can tell you brother!!!
Agency - This may be the most melodic song on the album. I feel
that it also carries with it a very catchy chorus. I think that we are
going to play that song live! It is about all the financial breakdown.
It takes on critical viewpoint focusing on those rating agencies. I ask
you, "Who is able to stop all these carpetbaggers?"
Piercing Öf Death - Here we have another funny story about
a guy who gets a brain piercing because he is a big fan of a certain Metal
band! There is some very excellent guitar work being performed. Although,
it may not be the most not typical chorus found on this album!
In The City - I think that this very well may be the most typical
Tankard track to be found on this album. The song is very old school in
every way. I believe that this song could be on every other album. It
is definitely the most speedy song on our new album!
- This one is all about the yellow press judgements. It concentrates
on the issue as to whether or not it is clear if these people are guilty.
This is indeed one of my favourite choruses on this album. We are seriously
going to consider the possibility of playing this song live.
Warriors - Now this is a song about us! While working during the
whole week we know that we are going to go out on the weekend and play
live. It is then that we will have ourselves a really good Thrash Metal
time! The music is also very thrashy, with some clean vocal lines proceeding
at least three times. This songs represents the Tankard experience, and
it totally fits to my mind!
