Metropol The Black Box LP
Moiras 012 LP
Coming from Nagyvárad (Oradea) in Romania, hard rock band Metropol had to face the very hard conditions of the 70s-80s’ Communist Romania. Due to their hard work, exceptional management skills and plenty of luck they became one of the leading rock acts in Romania in the late 70s. Metropol released four LPs between 1978 and 1986 and had annual country-wide tours. As a native Hungarian band, they sang in their own language, but sometimes translations were performed in ethnic Romanian cities. Due to Communist censorship, only their debut LP „Égig érhetne az ének” (The Song Could Reach The Sky) could be recorded in Hungarian. All subsequent albums had to have only Romanian versions. We now proudly present their second Hungarian vinyl album, a kind of attempt at the reconstruction of the LP that was originally due to be released back in the late 70s. The tracks were saved in the band’s archives, taken from various sources between 1974-1994. Perhaps The Black Box is the most obscure Hungarian hard rock album of all times.

Metropol: Égig érhetne az ének
Moiras 001 LP - Limited to 330 copies
Perhaps the most unusual hard rock production of all times by Hungarian
artists. Metropol was a band in Nagyvárad (Oradea). The town, located
in the Westernmost part of Romania, had a significant Hungarian
minority population, where this band also originated from. Exceptional
managment skills, hard work and plenty of luck helped them conquer the
Romanian Communist pressure against rock products during the 70s-80s.
Égig érhetne az ének (The Song Could Reach The Sky) is their debut LP
from 1978, and remained the only one sung in Hungarian. It reached only
the ethnic Hungarian minority living in Romania, though. It was never
distributed in Hungary ... The LP is considered the very best Metropol
material ever by many reviewers, although there were three more LPs
released between 1979 and 1986. An album influenced by many artists,
but melted into one characteristic, unique Metropol sound.
