MOTD - Tiger Force: A Danish Heavy Metal Gem

Mp3 Of The Day

Band/Artist: Tiger Force
Song: Track 2
Album: demo
Style: Heavy Metal
country/location: Denmark
release: 1985

Here's some super obscure but quality heavy metal for you! As many of you know, I have a love for old heavy metal demos from the 80s. A lot of great gems are found among these unknown bands. Tiger Force being a pretty great discovery in my trips around the internet. From Denmark, this little band played bordering thrash-shredding, riffing NWOBHM inspired heavy metal. The galloping rhythms is a dead giveaway of their influences as well as a riff that sounds stolen from Dio. The solos are more than competent. The vocalist is not particularly memorable, sounding like an average young male singer, but the charm is there. Not much is known about these guys unfortunately (the name of this song is open to speculation), but I'd be curious to learn what happened to them for they had some potential. Fans of traditional heavy metal will enjoy this. Check it out!

I suppose I shouldn't really be surprised that this was 1985 in Denmark by the way it sounds. Pretty rad song!
