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.
