                In the history of heavy metal, there aren’t many bands that have released two great albums in the same year; it is feat of absolute endurance with only the likes of Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Motörhead and Tank achieving the double. The latter band may actually be forgotten about these days, but in 1982, Tank did it with the fantastic ‘Filth Hounds of Hades’ and ‘Power of the Hunter’ which has now been reissued on CD and vinyl by High Roller Records.

                ‘Power…’ may very much live in the shadow of its predecessor, but it does equal it in every way and the CD version of this reissue comes with a poster to whack up on your bedroom wall, you know, like the old days. The main focus of this reissue is however the vinyl and what the listener gets here is ‘Power…’ housed in a heavy cardboard case with a 5mm spine which holds a poster, a four page insert as well as a bonus 7” in p/s with a black, grey, white and ultra-clear insert. Furthermore, this vinyl reissue will come not only in black vinyl, but also mixed white and grey, white and black splatter as well as ultra-clear with a white, yellow and grey multi-splatter.

                Unlike their sister releases, these CD and vinyl reissues may not come with bonus tracks, and it may be missing some of the bells and whistles lauded upon ‘Filth Hounds…’, but ‘Power…’ is an album well worth getting hold of because Tank are one of the most underrated NWOBHM bands that deserve to have their name shouted out once more.
