Alpha Tiger - Alpha Tiger

Alpha Tiger is a band from Saxony that for some reason seemed to be getting traction after a bunch of releases despite being a second rate, retro sounding band with semi-decent ideas and a singer with a very annoying pitch and timbre, the loss of which, a couple of years ago led them to hiring a new kid by the name of Benjamin Jaino and thus a certain move into a...
