Ostrogoth are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of heavy and power metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Last Tribe Standing" which consists of 4 original tracks and 4 live songs and was released by Empire Records.
Clean playing and melodic guitar leads which are also used quite a bit throughout the recording start off the ep along with some clean singing vocals and spoken word parts a few seconds later which leads up to a more heavy traditional metal direction and the vocals also get more rough and adds in more touches of power metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released in the early 80's and the live tracks also continues the bands old school heavy/power metal direction.
Ostrogoth plays a style of power and heavy metal that is still very much rooted in the 80;s and you can tell even after 30 years the band has remained true to t heir roots, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover fantasy and real life themes.
In my opinion Ostrogoth are a very great sounding mixture of heavy and power metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Clouds" "Last Tribe Standing" and "Rock Fever". 8 out of 10.
