Band Information:

  Ostrogoth is a heavy metal band that was formed in Belgium in 1976. The band has undergone several changes in its lineup and musical style throughout its career but has remained a prominent force in the European heavy metal scene.


Ostrogoth was formed in 1976 in the Belgian city of Ghent. The original lineup consisted of vocalist Josey Hindrix, guitarists Rudy Vercruysse and Marc De Brauwer, bassist Marnix Van De Kauter, and drummer Mario Pauwels. The band initially played a mix of hard rock and heavy metal, and released their debut single "Paris By Night" in 1980.

In 1981, the band released their first full-length album, "Ecstasy and Danger," which showcased a more aggressive, heavy metal sound. This album gained critical acclaim and established Ostrogoth as a leading force in the Belgian metal scene. In 1983, the band released their second album, "Full Moon's Eyes," which featured a more polished sound and continued to build upon the success of their debut.

Ostrogoth went through several lineup changes throughout the 1980s, with only guitarist Rudy Vercruysse remaining a constant member. Despite these changes, the band continued to release albums and tour extensively throughout Europe, building a dedicated fanbase.

Musical Style

Ostrogoth's early music was heavily influenced by traditional heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Their music typically features melodic guitar riffs, fast-paced drumming, and soaring vocals. The band also incorporated elements of hard rock and classic rock into their music, creating a unique sound that set them apart from their peers.

As the band evolved, their musical style became more polished and melodic, with a greater emphasis on catchy choruses and harmonized guitar solos. The band's later albums, such as "Feelings of Fury" (1986) and "Too Hot" (1987), featured a more commercial sound, with a greater emphasis on radio-friendly hooks and melodic guitar lines.


Ostrogoth's influence on the European heavy metal scene cannot be overstated. Their early albums, particularly "Ecstasy and Danger," helped to establish a new wave of heavy metal in Belgium and paved the way for other Belgian metal bands such as Acid and Killer.

The band's melodic, guitar-driven sound has also had a lasting impact on the heavy metal genre as a whole. Many modern metal bands cite Ostrogoth as an influence, particularly in the areas of guitar playing and songwriting.
