Coming from Nagyvárad (Oradea) in Romania, hardrock 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. Kept Alive Records now proudly present their third Hungarian vinyl album. The tracks on Side A were saved in the band's archives, taken from various sources between 1971-1974. The tracks on side B were recorded live in Székelyudvarhely (Odorhei Secuiesc) in 2021.
