MMM Presents: OSTROGOTH (Belgium) + PATRIARCH (Belgium)
Ostrogoth’s live show will feature an old school set with the entire ‘Ecstasy and Danger’ album, plus additional classic tunes from the early days.
Yes, 2017 will be pretty exciting for Ostrogoth. Not only will they be looking to the future by making a new record, at the same time they will also be revisiting the past, by bringing our debut album ‘Ecstasy And Danger’ live, in its entirety, for the first time since 1984! ‘Ecstasy and Danger’ contains several classics tunes, like the 8-minute long opening track ‘Queen of Desire’, ‘Scream Out’, and the pounding title track ‘Ecstasy and Danger’, songs that are often featured in our live set. But other tracks haven’t been played in a while now and songs like ‘Stormbringer’ and ‘A Bitch Again’ haven’t been performed live since 1984, since the touring campaing for the ‘Ecstacy and Danger’ album, 32 years ago.When editor in chief Metal Mike reviewed the album for Dutch Aardschok magazine, back in January 1984, he wrote “Ecstasy and Danger is the best hard rock album any Belgian band has ever produced, so far” and he gave the album a blistering score of 9/10.
When Jeff Wagner reviewed the album for British Iron Fist magazine in 2014 he wrote “‘Queen of Desire’ is the best song they would ever write, a terrific 8 minutes, packed to the gills with events. It reeks of 70′s era Judas Priest, except for the balladic middle section, which recalls the ethereal moments – ‘Remember Tomorrow’, ‘Strange World’ – from that first Iron Maiden album” and he concluded with the words “a formidale set of songs, each having something tasty to chew on”.
Both editors were spot on with their words. ‘Ecstasy and Danger’ has proven to be a classic 80′s hard rock album and a fan favorite, together with the legendary EP ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’, released one year earlier in 1983.
The band was formed in February 1983, it was named PARIAH....Two demos were recorded. One song from the first demo was also released on the NEW RENAISSANCE RECORDS compilation “SATAN’S REVENGE”. This song had the same title “SATAN’S REVENGE” and appeared only on the tape-version of this album. When one of the founding members died in a car crash accident in March 1988, and two other groups with the same name PARIAH both released an album, the band members decided to change their name into PATRIARCH. A new demo was recorded and this resulted in a deal for 2 albums with the German label SHARK RECORDS.
The debut-album “PROPHECY” was released in December 1990. After the original vocalist left the band, a new vocalist, ERIK RINKES, joined the band in September 1991. The second album was titled “WORLD WITHIN WORLDS” and it was released in February 1993. In 2000 they released “INSIDE” as a split single with After All, released on Cannibaelus Records as a limited edition 7” on red vinyl..
In 2005 they had a new line up; Ortwin Lietaert / Vox, Ronny Clé / Guitar, Kris de Bie / Drums, Tweeva / Bass, Fred Mylemans / Guitar
With this line up the band released : Demo “BLACK HARVEST” released in May 2006 / Album “MANKIND - THE VIRUS” released in 2008
In March 2011 a new vocalist was found, Kevin Vangelooven (ex- Native Instinct) joined the band. The band reworked the songs that were planned for the album
and decided to record a demo before recording a full album. In 2016 they released “Rage of Gods” and the band will promote this album as well as sevaral old tunes! Check them out!!
