OZ formed in the late 70s in Nakkila, Finland. Their debut album "Heavy Metal Heroes" arrived in 1982. Only a year later, OZ implemented a milestone of Scandinavian heavy metal with "Fire In The Brain", whose influential effect should become obvious years later. Using the "Turn The Cross Upside Down" EP and its title track, OZ then gained the peak of their popularity. Even today it is very much this song that metal fans connect with OZ.
And the band, whose members by then had moved from Finland to Sweden, stayed reliable with album releases: "III Warning", "Decibel Storm" and "Roll The Dice" were release until 1991, before the band split up.
In underground circles OZ enjoy an excellent reputation, but the normal metal fan (due to a long release pause the band made) will not necessarily be familiar with this Scandinavian heavy metal force. This will change soon, as the cult-band singer around vocalist Ape DeMartini will soon release their highly anticipated comeback album which is titled "Burning Leather"
The latest album comes in 2017 and is titled "Transition State" and contain brand new material and new recordings.
