Bengal Tigers

There wasn't a lot of metal in Australia in the early 80's, but Bengal Tigers were one such band, debuting in 1982 with the Metal Fetish EP. They toured quite a bit in their home country for years and years, even though they didn't get another release put out until the mid-nineties. Metal Fetish displayed a basic NWOBHM / Judas Priest style, not bad at all for the time.
