ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Zoord plays upbeat, powerful ethno trance with strong Jew's harp, drums, and violin. The roots of our music go back to Transylvania. M62 is about a train that runs between the wonderful mountain of that region. And this is the story of the song:
"It was in 1993 when I first went to Transylvania. It was a school trip to Gyimesfelsőlok (Lunca de Sus in Romanian). It was really exotic experience to visit a remote Hungarian speaking region 700 kms East of the Hungarian border not much after the communist regime.
The whole trip was like being in a time-machine: muddy roads, weird food, rural environment, untouched nature. I and my friend, Öcsi Andrusik met these two local cool guys. They walked us up to train tunnel in Gyimesbük. On the way there they were explaining how many bear-attacks had happened recently, how exactly the victims got torn apart , just to keep the thrill-level high. At tunnel -which was guarded by armed soldiers- the guys told us the real cool guys were those who could run through the tunnel. Well, as we had some plans for the future and didn't know the train-schedule by heart, we decided to skip the plan. But there was one more thing that distracted the project: the howling sound of the horn of the M62 train. The sound of the horn echoed between the mountains. The rambling sound of the passing train quaked the earth beneath us, our lungs absorbed the smoke of the diesel engine, our ears were willed with the sound of the horn. Looking around we saw the slopes dotted with small mountain huts, elevating smoke from chimnies in the valley, our two new friends with their rotten scooter and the energy explosion of the M62 train coming out of the tunnel.
This was a very remarkable essential Transylvanian memory that I just can't forget.
I still wonder where those people went on that -anyways- absolutely ordinary train. Were they singing? Hungarian or Romanian? What was their life just some years after the fall of Caucescu's dictatorship? Had they left their tension on the platform after getting on the same train? Does the same road bring together people?
Last week I and my friends, Krisztián Almási and Drabant Béla of Zoord recorded a new song, called M62. It will be ready soon under the fingertips of Rafał Kołaciński. It feels so great to play together with them. When you are in the studio or on the stage together, the sounds just roll out. Very high energy level. When I am playing I see the green slopes of Transylvania and I see the dancing, smiling barefoot crowds in front of the stage. I hear the barks of the shepard dog and the movement of the subwoofers under my feet.
I hope some of you will take this train with us. Release the tension by the monotone rhythms, the traditional melodies and the sometimes shamanic, sometimes electronic Jew's harp sound."
