Germany has quite some list of top metal groups, and thus accordingly for such a long time a considerable volume of fine heavy metal has consistently been released from German origins. So does this statement ring true with one of the newer German groups Alpha Tiger and their second album Beneath The Surface? Well it is a gripping album with a traditional heavy metal feel but Beneath The Surface isn't your dated sounding metal release. Also Beneath The Surface doesn't take multiple plays to find its appeal so I'd have to say yes.
Beneath The Surface follows on from their 2011 debut Man Or Machine now armed with a new drummer Alpha Tiger are out to make an impact with their vigorous style of heavy metal.
The beating pulse on "Intro" is joined by some cool guitar that promptly ignites the brawny metal track "The Alliance" and the metal missile that is Alpha Tiger has lifted off destined to unleash a great payload of heavy metal. The speedy metal of "From Outer Space" has much to offer including a screaming guitar solo while the vibrant rocker "Waiting For A Sign" ticks along at a medium pace. Alpha Tiger are also putting on a great showing for title track "Beneath The Surface" with a furore of double kicks, sizzling guitars and those soaring vocals that regularly appear on Beneath The Surface. The remainder of the album is sure to impress metal fans as Alpha Tiger have recorded ten compelling metal tracks.
If you've got a hankering for a healthy dose of exciting heavy metal the guys from Alpha Tiger can help you out with Beneath The Surface. With a band such as Alpha Tiger appearing and releasing music this good the future looks bright, and so we can surely expect to hear more wonderful heavy songs from the best German metal acts for many years from now.
