Anti Tank Nun, a band created by Tomek ‘Titus’ Pukacki, the well-known vocalist and bass guitarist of Acid Drinkers, and the phenomenal 15-year old guitarist Igor ‘Iggy’ Gwadera, is in the final stage of work on the material for their sophomore release. The album entitled “Fire Follow Me” is scheduled for release on May, 27th in Europe and July, 2nd in USA (via MVD).
And today the band reveal the artwork of the new album.
Anti Tank Nun was a sensation on the metal scene in Poland last year, when they released their debut album “Hang’em High”. With the new material they take another step forward as they promise the album will be more melodic and mature. “I do believe that with this album we will prove that we do feel what we play” – says Titus. “Do we experiment? I guess not. What inspires us still lies exactly in the same place where it did when we recorded our debut album. The new tracks are more solid and, at the same time, more clear.” This time it’s more like team work. “We were all bringing ideas to our rehearsals” – says Igor. –“Even Titus, previously responsible only for the arrangements and production, brought his ideas for tracks. This way the album will be pretty diverse and more melodic.” Including a ballad in the tracklist will be another novelty on “Fire Follow Me”.
At the very beginning, Tomek and Igor were supposed to record one studio track only and a video-clip for that same track. The results of their work at rehearsals were so good that they decided to form a band – Anti Tank Nun! The band’s line-up was soon completed by Adam Bielczuk (guitar) and Bogumił Krakowski (drums). Igor is a pupil of the well know Polish musician Jarek Chilkiewicz (Bracia, My Riot) and from the beginning of his education he was showing incredible talent. There was no one on the Polish music scene who at the age of 14 could play guitar so well. He is able to play his own solo parts but also those of Zakk Wylde, Dimebag Darrel, Randy Rhoads or Glenn Tipton! Anti Tank Nun’s debut album entitled “Hang’em High” contained a perfect blend of heavy metal sounds with melodic riffs. The charismatic bass player Titus shows off his new face and, together with the young but talented guitarist, these two musicians make for an incredibly energetic duo.
