About Us

DraZe Records is a small but enthusiastic group of Hungarian people who have 2 passions: rock music and collecting records.
They stepped into record “business” with its first release in late 2015, shortly followed by the second one in early 2016.
But the story of the label goes back to around 2010 when the first band was contacted with the idea of releasing their ready-to-use studio album on vinyl. After couple unsuccessful talks and attempts the dream seemed to be over.
Until 2015, when the dream was reborn with another band…
And Mister X LP is now out for sale after 25 years of its original recording!
And the story continued with a different but challenging work: releasing something which is already published on a fantastic digipak cd and trying to overcome it with the vinyl version.
Now you can ascertain that we did it with Turbo Pentagram LP!

Turbo Pentagram
Turbo Pentagram LP

TURBO – PENTAGRAM

LP – DraZe 002

What an unimaginative band name! Who’s getting excited hearing this name? How many Turbo are just on Discogs? Today (May 2016) 29, not including Turbonegro, Turbowolf, Turbofunk and other variant. Simply Turbo. Who will click on all in order to find the right one? Nobody. But I can help you. This Hungarian one is Turbo (25).
And who’s getting excited hearing that first vinyl of Turbo has been released? Perhaps just few vinyl junkies. But listen to this music! You can call it progressive hard rock or whatever, it’s real rock music with well-developed ideas showing the band’s intention to create their own style which is a mix of intelligent hard rock with modern sound using up-to-date studio equipment.
In 2016 you can listen it before (or instead of) buying the record in its physical format:
https://turboband.bandcamp.com/album/pentagram
If you are not convinced yet, look at the cover! What a fantastic artwork and design! Imagine you touch it! High-quality pressing on first-class material. Take out the insert! What a witty band photo!
And last but not least, hand-numbered, pressed in 222 copies.

Micsoda fantáziátlan zenekarnév! Ki jön izgalomba egy ilyen névtől? Hány Turbo nevű előadó van csak a Discogs-on? Ma (2016 májusában) 29, nem is számolva az olyanokat, mint Turbonegro, Turbowolf, Turbofunk és hasonlók. Ki fogja ezeket végignézni, hogy megtalálja pont a keresettet? Senki. De segítek. A “mi” magyar Turbonk a Turbo (25) néven található.
És ki jön izgalomba, ha meghallja, hogy megjelent az első Turbo vinil (bakelit)? Talán csak néhány megszállott. De hallgass bele a zenébe! Hívhatod progresszív hard rocknak, vagy bárminek, ez igazi rockzene, átgondolt ötletekkel, amik mutatják a zenekar törekvését, hogy a saját stílusukat teremtsék meg, amely egy intelligens, de húzós rockzene modern hangzással, felturbózva (már megint turbó) egy korszerű stúdió által biztosított lehetőségekkel.
És ma, 2016-ban, már bárki meghallgathatja az albumot, mielőtt megvenné hanghordozón (vagy épp ahelyett):
https://turboband.bandcamp.com/album/pentagram
Ha az eddigiek nem győztek meg, hogy még jobban meg akard ismerni a kiadványt, akkor nézz rá a borítóra! Micsoda fantasztikus grafika és dizájn! Képzeld el, hogy kézbe veszed! Első osztályú nyomdai kivitelezés minőségi papíron. Húzd ki az inzertet! Micsoda ötletes zenekari fotó!
És végül, de nem utolsósorban, sorszámozott, 222 példányban nyomva.

Mister X cover
Mister X LP

Mister X – MISTER X

LP – DraZe 001

Mister X – I remember reading an article about this material in Metal Hammer about 25 years ago. Due to the positive feedback I started to look for it, but with not much result. But then luck smiled upon me when Laszlo Lenard from Metal Hammer recorded it for me on a cassette and gave it to me. I couln’t stop playing it over and over again. I liked it so much.

At that time no one played this type of melodic metal as good as them in Hungary. Well designed melodies clashed with memorable verses and outstanding solos in their work. It is a sound that had a place on international waters and the quality of the sound is remarkable, so much that the piece could still be present in todays playlists. Unfortunately around that time (1991) melodic metal has already reached its peak and started down on its downfall, bands slowly broken up. Grunge took over and sweeped out the rest of the hair metal bands in one swipe.

Thus the Mister X record has fallen as well and they have broken up not long after recording that material. But I’ve never forgotten them, and it is my old dream to release this piece of Hungarian hard rock/metal music to show off and not to let it fade in the shadow of time once and for all. Finally it was published in the fall of 2015 only in vinyl version. 333 hand numbered copies were brought in light with a photo insert.
I highly recommend it to all melodic metal and vinyl fans to get a copy!

Mister X – emlékszem, amikor 25 éve megjelent egy írás a Metal Hammer-ben egy Mister X nevű zenekar studio felvételéről. A pozitív hangnemnek köszönhetően elkezdtem kutatni az anyag után. Nem sok sikerrel, mert nem akart megjelenni. Egyszer aztán rám mosolygott a szerencse, Lénárd László a Metal Hammer főszerkesztője felvette nekem kazettára. A kazettát rongyosra hallgattam, annyira tetszett.

Akkoriban ezt a dallamos metalt ilyen magas szinten nem játszotta itthon senki.Kimunkált dallamok, fülbemászó refrének és virtuóz szólók jellemezték a muzsikát. Bátran oda lehetett helyezni a kortárs nemzetközi bandák mellé is. A hangzás is kiváló. A mai napig megállja helyét. Nagyon szépen szól a felvétel. Sajnos akkoriban (1991-et írunk) megtorpant és hanyatlásnak indult a dallamos metal zene és a bandák is sorra oszlottak fel. A grunge lett a divat és elsöpörte a hajbandákat!

Ezért a Mister X lemezének a megjelenése is kútba esett. Fel is oszlottak nemsokkal a lemez elkészülte után. Én azonban nem feledtem el ezt a nagyszerű bandát. Régóta dédelgettem azt az álmom, hogy megjelentetem ezt a nagyszerű anyagot, hogy méltó módon dokumentáljuk a magyar hard rock/metal történelem eme gyöngyszemét és ne merüljön a feledés homályába végleg. Végre 2015 őszén megjelent az anyag kizárólag vinyl formátumban, ezzel is emelve a kiadvány ázsióját. 333 kézzel számozott példányban látott napvilágot.
A lemezhez egy fotó inzert is jár. Melegen ajánlott minden dallamos metal és bakelit rajongónak a figyelmébe.
D.K.
