History[edit]

Road is a Hungarian rock band from Domoszló, Heves County, Hungary. Formed in 2004, Road consists of bassist-singer Máté Molnár, guitarist Zsolt B. Golyán „Goya”, guitarist Imre Kádár and drummer Erik Szabó. The band’s lineup hasn't changed during it’s history so far.

Road’s style of music is often called as „Rock n’ Road” by the band itself that means characterful Hungarian countryside rock/heavy metal music in their context. Its guitar sound is distorted, its tempo is mainly energetic. Road also uses folkish motives in some of its songs, and the band has an acoustic repertoire, as well. It has already had a special concert with a brass orchestra.

Road’s lyrics are about love, passion, speed and rock and roll feeling – among other issues. With positive attitude, in a straightforward way. Road is one of the most active rock bands in Hungary and is very successful in the terms of record sales and concert attendance.

Road has released six studio albums, a best of album, a live album, two dvd-s, eighteen video clips and has also published a book of the band's story. Three of their albums has reached gold and two of them platinum status as Music recording sales certification. The band still works in its members’ childhood region called Mátraalja and they are on tour the whole of the year throughout Hungary as well as in trans-border areas inhabited by Hungarians.
