Released in early 1982 and produced by none other than Motörhead guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke, Filth Hounds naturally contained its fair share of scorching, paint-peeling heavy rockers (see the title cut, "Run Like Hell" and opener "Shellshock," whose silly caveman chants suggest just how much fun was had at these sessions), fueled by a similarly volatile cocktail of intensity and velocity as that made famous by the band's creative gurus. But the record also made room for more accessible offerings like amusing singles "Blood, Guts & Beer" and "He Fell in Love with a Stormtrooper," the sardonic "Who Needs Love Songs," and the surprisingly long-winded bluesy jam "That's What Dreams Are Made Of" (which some listeners may liken to Motörhead's "The Chase Is Better Than the Catch") -- all of which helped to showcase Tank's enviable instrumental chops at less frantic speeds. Even so, it's arguably another pair of teetotal punk metal masterpieces -- the self-explanatory "Struck by Lightning" and the arguably career best anthem, "Turn Your Head Around" -- that ensure Filth Hounds of Hades' standing as Tank's best album ever, and qualifying it as an essential item in the record collection of any serious '80s metal fan.
