OSTRING is the the concept on which we’ve been working on for the last years and its purpose is to overcome the „barrier” between the metal music world from Eastern Europe and the West. As we know, bands from the East (except Poland) hardly make it on the big stages of festivals and not because a lack of value but rather due to the logistics factor.
The target of this competition is to encourage professionalism and to promote underground bands.
The evolution of this project is gradually conceived with its first year starting from a core of neighboring countries of Romania (Moldova, Ucraina, Bulgaria). The following editions of OSTRING will extend to Russia, Hungary and Poland, countries which already have signed up for partnership, and later on, in all East European countries.
Consider OSTRING as an arena of metal . An arena where gods fight with heroes of metal from an underground pantheon. The best will be awarded with a slot on the main stage of a festival, next to legendary bands. Through the position they have within line-up, they have the oportunity to find numerous fans which will respect them and their music, fans that are there to see them because they are among the best. The great times are here now. Not in the past, nor in the future.
OSTRING aims to represent an identity defining space for the Eastern European rock/ metal music genre, attempting to establish cultural links, to stimulate artistic mastery and the competitive spirit specific to creative industries.
We would be glad if the first subcribers would be the bands with history in its country, bands that left the vanity asside and proves that underground metal spirit could be restaured. That they didn’t forget the pleasure to evolve on scene, and didn’t forget to fight!
