Skorpio ‎ “Ünnepnap” 1976 Hungary Hard Rock

Skorpio ‎ “Ünnepnap” 1976 Hungary Hard Rock second album
full vk

An extremely talented band, they sound like a mix of Mountain and Grand Funk! The words are sung in Hungarian, but the band plays in the universal language of funk & rock. There are at least 4 to 5 smokin breaks, and,or intro beats.Two funk rock tunes called “Ágnes” and “Ne haragudj rám”. one excellent tune with breaks “Rongylábkirály” and two nice tracks with drumbreaks “Menetirány” and “Vezess át az éjszakán”. A real treat for anyone who has not heard it. These guys get down as well as any U.S. band. Killer guitar licks and bass lines that really groove..~


Scorpio was founded in 1973 by the Hungarian rock band after the 1971 Locomotiv GT and the 1972 Taurus as the third supergroup of our country. 
Members of both previously played in bands known and have gained a strong reputation: Charles Frenreisz LGT was the singer and bass player, singer-guitarist Gabor Szucs Antal Gabor and drummers of the Hungaria Black, Gyula Papp organist he played in the Mini. 
Frenreis first thought of a trio of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and later decided to include a guitarist. ...~ 


The band was founded by bass guitarist Károly Frenreisz after his departure from Locomotive GT in 1973. He previously worked in Metro. Other members are Gyula Papp (ex-Mini) - keyboards, brother of famous singer Judith Szücz Antal Gábor Szücz - guitar and drummer Gábor Fekete of Hungarie . In this set, they record the first two albums A Rohanas (1974) and Ünnepnap (1975). In 1976, Fekete's Gábor Németh replaces Skorpió with Kélj fél (1977) and Gyere Velem (1978). In 1979, Frenreis leaves the rest of the band to set up a new Dinamit with Gyula Vikidal behind the microphone. Frenreisz assembles the new Skorpio, which continues in the three. They come guitarist Tibor Tátrai, who went through Syrius and General and drummer Tamas Papp from Coral. In this series, the albums Új Skorpio (1980) and Zene Tiz húrra és egy dobosra (1981) are born. After the last album, Azt Beszeli Mar and Egesz Varos (1985), the band disintegrates. In 1993, the album A Show Meggy Tább is released, with Károly Frenreisz bass, saxophone, singing Szücs Antal Gábor Szücs - guitar, vocals Géza Pálvölgyi - Tamás Papp - drums. The best of 1973-1993 is released....~ 

History : The group SKORPIÓ was founded in summer 1973 by Károly Frenreisz (vocals, bass, saxophone), Antal Gábor Szucs (guitar, vocals), Gyula Papp (keyboard instruments) and Gábor Fekete (drums) in Budapest. All four musicians had learned their craft.  While Antal Gábor Szucs learned his art from the Hungarian jazz guitarist Andor Kovács, the three other musicians studied classical music at the Béla Bártok Conservatory in Budapest. After their training, the musicians already gathered in other groups first experiences, for example, Károly Frenreisz previously played between 1971 and 1973 at the Hungarian cult group LOCOMOTIV GT, Antal Gábor Szucs at the same time at HUNGARIA 

SKORPIÓ was one of the few hungarian bands that did not take long to reach the audience. Founded in summer, the band already gave their concert debut at a festival in August, together with the groups OMEGA, LOCOMOTIV GT and FONOGRAF. This impressive audience appearance was only the beginning. Shortly thereafter, SKORPIÓ released "Hosszú az út", the Hungarian Plattelabel "Pepita", their first single record. Also in 1973, the band recorded their first LP at the Budapest PEPITA Studios, which was released in 1974. This was followed by a tour of Canada and the USA. Also in the GDR, the group enjoyed great popularity. Concert tours also took her to Germany several times. While the title "great-grandfather said" was published on a coupling of the DDR record label AMIGA, the second song "Das Rennen", the German version of the title track of her album, which also appeared in this production, remained unpublished until today. Both titles ran but very successful in the broadcasting of the GDR and reached there also front seats in special programs. Despite these notable successes, it remained with the just-mentioned two productions. For a single, let alone for a complete album in Germany, it was not enough.

In their homeland Hungary the success continued for the chapel. Overall, the band released four LPs, before she founded in 1979 after the departure of keyboarder Gyula Papp under the name ÚJ SKORPIÓ. In 1980, the same album and in 1981 with "Zene Tíz Húrra És Egy Dobosra" another LP, which brought the band back to the top of the Hungarian scene. With the best-of-coupling "Aranyalbum 1973-1983" in 1983 and the LP "Azt Beszeli Mar az Egesz Varos" in 1985, two more records of the group appeared, after which it became quiet around SKORPIÓ. Even if the group did not officially dissolve, it was practically non-existent until after the political change in Hungary. Only in 1993 did the musicians reunite for the production of a new CD ("A show megy tovább", GONG) and a small tour. In the same year another "Best of" album was published. After that, the band's activities fell asleep again. A new musical gathering took place on March 15, 2006. Featuring Karoly Frenreisz, Gábor Szücs, Gábor Németh, Tibor Tátrai and Géza Pálvölgyi, the band gave one concert in Budapest.

Since 2010 the band is active again. In addition to the band founders Károly Frenreisz (voc, bg, sax) and Antal Gábor Szucs (g, voc) include Tibor Tátrai as another guitarist, keyboarder Géza Pálvölgyi and drummer Gábor Németh to the current cast. In the summer of 2013, the band celebrated its 40th birthday. It was celebrated on 19 August with a big concert in Budapest, in which Gyula Papp (key) even found another founding member again with SKORPIÓ.
