Limited eight disc (seven CDs + DVD) box set. Packaged in beer box and includes hardback book. For A Thousand Beers contains all Tankard albums which were released by Noise. Tankard was founded in 1982 and is a German thrash metal band from Frankfurt am Main. Along with Kreator, Destruction and Sodom, they are one of the Big Four of German thrash metal. Stylistically at home in thrash metal, their songs are mainly about alcohol. With Zombie Attack they released their first album in July 1986. A year later, in October 1987, followed their second album, Chemical Invasion and in 1988 The Morning After. After the first drummer, Oliver Werner, left the band and was replaced by Arnulf Tunn, the three albums were released: The Meaning of Life, Stone Cold Sober and Two-Faced. At the same time Tankard released the live album: Fat, Ugly and Live. After that the line up of the band changed again. In May 1994 Arnulf Tunn was replaced by Olaf Zissel, who still plays the drums today. One year later another founding member, Axel Katzmann, was forced to leave the band due to arthritis in his wrist. In the same year the band released The Tankard, which was their last album with Noise.
