One of the biggest names in hard rock in Hungary, Piramis (Pyramid) formed in 1973. Founding members Istvan Bertodi (vocals), Peter Gabor (guitar and vocals), Lajos Som (bass), Janos Toth (saxophone and flute), Bela Toth (keyboards and vocals), and Bela Szigeti (drums) would release their first album shortly thereafter, and that self-titled affair would mark the beginning of a long-running -- and very successful -- recording career that would last more than 30 years. Some members would come and go, but the band's propensity for staying near the top of the charts in its native land would be consistent throughout the decades. In 2006, the band played a number of highly successful reunion shows, and the live full-length Koncert 2006 was a Top Ten hit on the nation's album charts.
