OSSIAN (HUNGARY)


The band "Ossian" was formed after Endre Paksi left Pokolgép around 1985. He quickly found guitarist Zoltán Maróthy, T. Péter Kovács on bass, and Zsolt Galántai on drums. The band was fully formed by 1986, and they played their concert on July 13th. They were famous just as much for their insane multi-coloured outfits as for their music, eschewing the traditional chains and leather for harlequin suits. In October, 1986, they recorded their first demo, following it up with a second in May, 1987. They opened for international touring acts Pretty Maids, Helloween, and U.D.O. in 1987. In 1988, Kovács was conscripted into the army, and Laci Palvölgyi took over on bass. In 1988, the first album was released, and they opened for none other than Iron Maiden. The "Heart of Steel" music video featured a lot of footage of the band hanging out with Iron Maiden, and in fact, in the "Maiden England" video, Adrian Smith can be seen wearing an Ossian t-shirt.
