TANK This Means War Bernett NWOBHM 12" LP ALBUM VINYL

This is the hard to find French release of Tank's This Means War which has a diffent album cover.

 

Collectors information & Description: 

"This Means War" is the third album by British heavy metal band Tank, released in 1983. On this album, the line-up expanded to a four-piece, with the addition of second guitarist Mick Tucker, former member of the NWOBHM band "White Spirit". Thanks to Tucker's songwriting contributions and to the sound expanded by an extra guitar, the band changed their music in comparison with their previous albums with longer, more melodic compositions, which helped differentiate Tank from Motörhead, the band they were often compared to.

This album has been released two different versions of the album's front cover. The first version has been drawn by Chris Webster , the second version (released in France on Bernett records) was done by E. & M. Simon.
