QUEEN OF DESIRE (Official Bootleg Video)

It’s been a while since we posted something from our own video archives… and this one has a story behind it.
Here’s a 1-cam video shoot from the song ‘Queen of Desire’, recorded 5 months ago at the Heavy Sound Festival. Ostrogoth were supposed to play Heavy Sound, back in 2014. But we had to cancel the show, due to WhiteShark undergoing surgery. In 2015 Ostrogoth was back with a vengeance… but unfortunately without Sharky. When WhiteShark passed away earlier this year, the band decided for future concerts not to play the guitar intro to ‘Queen of Desire’ live, but to use the original guitar intro from the song, so that WhiteShark would still be part of the shows. After all, this was his signature song.
Enjoy ‘Queen of Desire’, recorded live at the Heavy Sound Festival, Summer 2015.




Of course we were very curious to hear what the press thought of ‘Last Tribe Standing’ and the resurrection of Ostrogoth. So we are very pleased that the reviews are all particularly favorable.

Finally, the wait is over! ‘Last Tribe Standing’ was released on January 23rd, 2015, both on CD and vinyl, through Belgian cult label Empire Records. ‘Last Tribe Standing’ is the first official Ostrogoth release since 1987 and contains 4 new studio recordings and 4 live tracks recorded in the summer of 2014.

At first the idea was to release a 4-track EP with new material, just like we did back in 1983 with our ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’ debut. Not a full album, just an EP with four killer songs. But a few days before we entered the studio to record the new tracks, we were listening to the tapes of some summer festival shows we had recorded earlier that year, solely for our own archives. The recordings were raw and 100% live, but the tapes sounded so good, it would’ve been a shame not to use them. So grew the idea to release two EP’s, back to back. With the four new songs on the A-side of the vinyl version and on the B-side the four songs from the ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’ EP, in a 2014 live version, the way the current line-up plays these songs today. Old and new gathered in one.”

‘Last Tribe Standing’ was produced by guitarist Dario Frodo and mixing engineer Pete Mush and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Epica, Amaranthe, Evergrey, Pretty Maids). The artwork for ‘Last Tribe Standing’ was created by the talented Velio Josto from Italy.
As a tribute to the early days the band decided to reuse the original logo that was only featured on the 1983 debut ‘Full Moon’s Eyes’.
