Biography

Hungary (1980 – present)

Pokolgép is a heavy metal band from Hungary, was formed in 1980. www.pokolgep.hu

The current line up:

Attila Tóth - lead vocal
Gábor Kukovecz - guitars
Csaba Pintér - bass
Márton Veress - drums
Zalán Kiss- guitars


1980-1986
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

Gabor Kukovecz, Tibor “Pepe” Varga, and Endre Paksi played together in an amateur group, and then started military services. After leaving the army they decided to take music seriously and played with dozens of drummers. They had gigs, and followers, including an as-yet unknown guy named József Kalapács. After a gig József walked up to the band saying he could sing with them. Like in a Hollywood bestseller he became a legendary member of the Hungarian rock-scene. His arrival made some waves, not only because he brought his friend Laci Nemeth, who was also a singer. ‘82 was the year when “Kalács” officially became the lead singer, and the band counted eight members. Because of their theatrical on-stage antics they really needed eight men. For example, for the song Ave Cezar, one of them dressed up like Cezar. The band has been using Orff’s Carmina Burana as an intro since that time. The nickname of Gabor Kukovecz (Hangman) derived from his costume too. “Kalács” and Józsi Németh spread the word wearing panther skin waistcoats in songs like Cirkusz és Rács( Circus and Grating) and Gladiátor (Gladiator). Because Gábor used to learn from Prognózis guitarist István Vörös, they did open-up shows for the band.

    Akinek nincs meg az Újratöltve című lemez az beszerezheti akármelyik SPAR vagy INTERSPAR áruházban - már amennyiben az adott áruház árul ilyesmit. nem csak kizárólag élelmiszert. 299 forintos áron, gyári tokkal és borítóval. Booklet nincs, csak az ami az újságban volt, rendes kemény papíron, de nagyszerű így is :)

    Tényleg jó olvasni. Én akkor mosolyogtam nagyot amikor megláttam, hogy a Moonsorrow együttesének a dobosa Pokolgépes pólót viselt. =)
