OLYMP is not just a myth, but rather true teutonic HEAVY METAL. Driving riffs in traditional 80´s style, will make your heads bang wild.
The whole is literally old school to the bone. The roaring bass and striking twin-leads will raise even the last sceptic to the peak of Olympus.

Since the beginning of 2018, Butschi (guitars, vocals), André (bass), Armin (guitars) and Dommi (drums) have been working on original songs in their rehearsal room.
OLYMP emphasize their ambitions to reach the Olympus of the Metal gods by their longtime stage experience in former bands and a recent release of "Olymp", their self-titled EP.
