Three months ago, the German thrash metal legends TANKARD played the Eintracht Frankfurt club anthem ‘Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee’ in front of over 30,000 enthusiastic Frankfurt supporters, a short time before the kick-off of the German cup final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium.
Today, the band release the video clip of that performance. The clip was captured by the band and fans in the stadium. Check it out here:
Mastermind Gerre states:
“What an unforgettable event! We wanted those three and a half minutes to last forever! Simply amazing and incredible! This was once again one for the books… We tried with both, clip and CD, to truly capture a part of these epic moments and we hope that not only football fans from Frankfurt enjoy them!”
The new version of the EP “Schwarz-Weiß wie Schnee” (which has been completely sold out for over ten years) will be released on CD and “7 Vinyl” on 15 September 2017 via Nuclear Blast.

The Eintracht anthem, which has been played in the stadium for ten years before every home game of Eintracht Frankfurt, has now been completely re-recorded by the band. The thrashers were supported by Henni Nachtsheim (Badesalz), Ande Werner (Mundstuhl) and Roy Hammer (Roy Hammer & Die Pralinées), who can be heard in the backing choir.
The artwork was designed by cult comic artist Michael Apitz, whose comics have been published for years in the stadium newspaper of Eintracht Frankfurt.
The tracklist of the new EP:
1. Schwarz-weiß wie Schnee (Studioversion 2017)
2. Forza SGE
