Tanker is sludge metal/rock band from Banja Luka, the capital city of Bosnia’s entity, Republic of Srpska. Formed in 2008., the band was a side-project of members from three Banja Luka-based bands Monument, Revolt and AntiDope. Soon after its inception, however, the band became more serious. In 2009, the band appeared at the Nektar DemoFest and finished in third place at the competition. This was the fuel that convinced the band to continue forward with full power. Since then, the band has played numerous shows in Bosnia and Serbia. Its first EP “Sorrow Drives The Will” was recorded in 2010 in their hometown, and was self-released by the band.
Tanker is managed by band members and friends who are willing to support local metal scene.
