From the south of the Netherlands comes Tank 86. This band plays Instrumental Stoner Rock with Doom, Sludge and huge Metal influences. Tank 86 has released two EP's called Ariba (2005) and Behold (2008). Now they're back with their full-lenght album Rise. You could almost say that this album sounds like an instrumental version of High On Fire. In any case, the songs sound very heavy. The Metal influences certainly play an important role on this album.
Tank 86 is yet another great band from the Dutch soil. Their album Rise is definitely an masterpiece. It is highly recommended. It is 10 Euros well spent! Listen some tunes on their Bandcamp and you'll be convinced! Enjoy!

Tank86: Heavy instrumentalism. Mighty sonic blows, enlarged by the absence of vocals.

2011 sees the release of their first full length album 'Rise'. After five years of honing their craft and the release two EP's, the sound of Tank86 has now come to it's full momentum. Harmonised guitars and a more layered approach add more depth to the already massive sound of the band. Never losing sight of the almighty riff, pounding you into oblivion.

Over the past years Tank86 has toured Europe with Dozer and stood it's ground alongside bands such as Monster Magnet, Pelican and Karma to Burn.

Expect collapsing buildings.
