Pokolgep Bio

Pokolgép is a Hungarian heavy metal band formed in the early 1980s (around 1982). They were among the first heavy metal bands in Hungary along with Moby Dick. The name "Pokolgép" literally means Infernal Machine, but is the Hungarian word for a home-made bomb.

Pokolgép was started by Gábor Kukovecz, Endre Paksi and Tibor Varga in the late 1970s. Kukovecz was taught to play the guitar by Prognózis guitarist/singer István Vörös who suggested the less offending name "Kommandó". They used this name for some months before changing it back to Pokolgép. The life of the band was very difficult because of their poverty and the government's negative attitude towards the band. They were playing semi-illegal concerts on the edge of Budapest, and after some time they became known.
