My good friend Christian Graus recently air mailed me a lovely care package from Australia. It included many bags of Caramello koalas (!) plus some music, including Bengal Tigers Panic Clinic. The EP has six tracks:
On the Leash
To the East
On the Leash (extended)
Melbourne-based Bengal Tigers are classic heavy Metal in the vein of AC/DC or Judas Priest.
They've released seven albums over a very sporadic career and with many different members.
The Panic Clinic album is pretty good, if not uneven. The tracks are true to their form: straight up Metal with glam touches. If you're not familiar with Bengal Tigers, I'm not surprised. There is very little information about the band on the Internet...and American music fans may find it hard to track down the releases. Still, if you come across a Bengal Tigers album in a used bin, pick it up - you won't be sorry!
Give this song a listen: Bengal Tigers "Break & Bend"
