Hungarian cultic heavy metal band ROTOR return with 2 albums after 12 years

Fans of Hungarian heavy metal band ROTOR can mark 15th February in their calendars, as the cultic band makes their comeback with not only one, but two new records in 12 years. Their 5th full-length, titled “Most, vagy soha!” (English: Now or Never!) is going to contain  12 brand new songs and the compilation album “Még élünk” (English: We’re Still Alive!) contains 14 re-recorded classics from the band’s previous releases, embracing the 33 years of their career. Both albums are going to be released via Hammer Records, and can now be preordered at metalshop.hu.

Most, vagy soha!”, the follow-up to 2007’s “Acélba zárva” was recorded in the band’s own studio, “Rotorsound” under the supervision of both guitarists József Plósz and László Ferenczi. The re-recorded version of the track “Rotor 1992” features a number of guest musicians, such as Remo Andrásik (Remo, Rudán Joe Band, Z’Zi-Labor), Attila Novák (Karen Single Band), Zoltán Pereverzia (Ex-Rotor) and Zsolt Szijártó (Kárpátia). Lyrics by modern day poet, Norbert Malejkó is also featured in multiple songs.

Drummer Szilárd Fekete commented about the recording process of the albums, and about future plans:

After the release of “Acélba Zárva” we really felt satisfied, like finally everything’s in its place. However soon after we had to part ways with Tomi Szilágyi (guitars) because of musical differences, and János (vocals) was diagnosed with serious diabetes and got hospitalized. So we suddenly hit the bottom. 

Around that time László, József (guitars) and I started a new project and János joined another band after his recovery. Our record label then came up with the idea of a compilation album, as a way to say farewell to Rotor. To integrate the sound of the old songs, we also had to re-record them. 

During the recordings we realized that there is so much potential in this band, so we decided to keep on working together. We started working on the new record last year, as the mixing of the compilation album took a little bit longer time than expected. Meanwhile, László kept on coming up with new ideas constantly, so when “Élünk még” was finished, we immediately could continue working in the studio. Now it’s time to book concerts, as we’d like to perform wherever it’s possible. A symphonic project and a book about the band is also in our plans. Meanwhile we’re already working on the next album, and we’re expecting to finish it by the end or this year, or early next year
