Beneath The Surface

Beneath The Surface by Alpha Tiger
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Century Media
Anglo-Saxons from Saxony, in the former East Germany, Alpha Tiger do a tasteful, operatic-chorused '80s prog-bombast metal thing that'd be more diverting if they played faster (as they do to start "From Outer Space"), if their rhythm section had more thickness to it (as it does to start "We Came From the Gutter"), if they really sounded like they came from an outer-space gutter, and if their songs didn't outwear their welcome. As is, Queensryche fans might fall for them regardless, and those munchkins conducting the call-and-response Q&A in "Eden Lies in Ruins" do earn their fall from grace.
