On December 2, Mandoki’s Soulmates’ Hungarian-language album titled Hungarian Pictures was released. Earlier, in the fall of 2019, the English-language record was released under the title Hungarian Pictures, which won a huge gold record recognition in Germany and Hungary, and took first place on the MAHASZ list. This was followed in 2021 by the wider version released worldwide under the title UTOPIA FOR REALISTS – as a Visual Album.

4th Omega album, containing new, for that time, songs recorded live.
The first Hungarian hard rock album, "Élő Omega", is 50 years old! On this occasion, a special gift box was released to the delight of Omega fans. 4 CDs, a picture book and the insert of the original sound record were included in the exclusive-looking, metallic-covered box.
The first disc is the same as the regular release, containing the remastered original album and 4 songs from the two singles associated with the disc.
The second CD contains the raw mix of the album from 1972. In addition to not containing audience noise, this audio differs from the original mix…

1982, hard times for prog and, like many other bands then, Omega changed their sound. Not only because of fashion - Omega musicians were seriously keen on computer technologies. As a result the album has obvious new wave sound, almost nothing reminds here of Omega's space-rock from the 70's.

Omega's 10th album "Az Arc" (The Face) is a departure form their 70's Symphonic-progressive Rock. The music is harder with grungy guitars,stomping drums,heavy bass and keyboards.( I found the keyboard sound the weakest element of this album due to it's "modern rock/new wave" influenced experimental sound. It comes accross skimpy at times, like playing a little toy keyboard.) Other wise, it is a very good album, mature and focused with somewhat political and philosophical lyrics about the fear of growing old, politics of everyday life and the lack of personal and artistic freedom.

Finally, with their eighth Hungarian album Omega reached the peak of their space/prog achievements. Forget about the cover image where the band members wear horrible glittering garment in the vein of ABBA or Bee Gees! Just listen to the music. Production is very good and probably for the first time Omega knew how to make a strong album without often poor heavy rock fillers. The opening notes of Nytany with Beethoven's 5th suggests more symphonic influences than on earlier albums. Benko's keyboards are excellent and provide rich sound palette and space/psychedelic sensation, while Molnar shows that he knows how to add tasty and effective guitar solo spices…

The six album "Nem Tudom a Neved" is an important release in band's career, a transition from more straight rock oriented sound to their most progressive period. Like most Omega albums it shows band's ability to create nice memorable melodies.
The most successful Hungarian rock band in history, Omega is one of the rare bands to have been known outside in his country. The legend has it that as albums were released in other countries it became necessary to brake the language barrier. Their music is a combination of Eastern European prog with a bit of symphonic and a bit of psyche prog. The result is a dark orchestrated sound combined with extended improvisation. Their discography actually starts in the early 60's, and goes in till today in a more modern register.

The seventh Hungarian release marks the attempt of Omega to shift their sound into more space-rock defined style. However, the attempt appears to be only partially successful.

Djabe released Forward in 2014, an album made with the inclusion of the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra Miskolc. Both the audience and critics hailed this release as the paramount Djabe experience. The most outstanding about Forward are the compositions, born to feature Djabe and the symphonics as equal partners: two musical worlds complementing and completing each other. Many claim Forward is the best ever album released by the band. Compositions made by Tamás Barabás and Attila Égerházi, symphonic sections were written by Tamás Barabás and orchestrated by Zoltán Kovács.

Debut Hungarian album of Omega is a curious early release of the band where they acted as Hungary's answer to The Beatles. Mixing psychedelic and beat pop with hints of folk, this album only shows the bits of what would later follow.

The second Hungarian album is much better than the amateurish debut, but the sound and style of the band is still not fully developed. Traces of psychedelic pop beat in "Petróleum lámpa" are being ever more informed by the burgeoning heavy rock guitar and organ riffs in "Túzvihar". The best compositions, the all-time favourite love ballad "Györgyhajú lány" (shamelessly copied and plagiarised by many, including the German metal legends Scorpions) and the powerfull, with excellent solo guitar, heavy stomping title track ("Ten Thousand Steps" in English), are at the same time the most progressive ones. The gatefold cover desing is very good showing the legacy of psychedelia.

Crazed jazzy and avant-proggy Belgian ensemble Humble Grumble seem "Zappa-esque" in their meld of anything-goes music and sometimes outrageous, sometimes incongruously dark lyrics, but the roots of the band are on the somewhat folkier side. Hungarian singer/guitarist Gabor "Humble" Vörös wandered around Europe before settling in the Ghent, Belgium area in 1993. He participated in a number of musical projects, including a somewhat oddball folk-rock outfit named Dearest Companion, also featuring multi-instrumentalist Tom Theuns. Vörös (on guitar and vocals) and Theuns (on bass) formed Humble Grumble in 1996, and a quintet version of the group toured Switzerland and Germany and recorded a pair of demos that year, The Golden Pile and The Tom and Gabor Special.

D Sound is the brainchild of guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Zsolt Dezso Murguly. The floating atmosphere of his music is very similar to that of Pink Floyd and Mike Oldfield. Kisember (2002) (meaning "Ordinary Man") consists of four main tracks divided into multiple movements, making for 11 tracks on your CD player's display. It features some interesting musical patterns where spiciness abounds (strong guitar play, very Dave Gilmour like) and the band knows how to rock when it wants to. The ethereal and spacey music is certainly pleasant and enjoyable as both background music and the basis for a more serious listen, as various musical themes are repeated throughout the album.
