D Sound biography
D SOUND is the brainchild of guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Zsolt Dezso Murguly. The floating atmosphere of his music is very similar to that of PINK FLOYD and Mike OLDFIELD. He is backed by drummer Adam Foldes, keyboard player Csaba Varga and female vocalist Liza Vargane who contributes one song in Hungarian. The band has released one album ('Kisember", 2002) whose title track was inspired by the FLOYD's "Division Bell".

Their (mostly instrumental) cd consists of four movements spread over several tracks which are linked together by a continuous pulsation. It features some interesting musical patterns where spiciness abounds (strong guitar play, very Dave Gilmour like) and the band knows how to rock when it wants to. Now the flaws: many guitar patterns often repeat themselves and the whole thing tends to get boring after a while; Murguly's vocals aren't too hot either; and the drums often sound flat, as if they were programmed. Interesting themes and nice floating atmospherics overall, but the music really lacks a dynamic, groovy drum sound.

Could be of some interest to PINK FLOYD, Mike OLDFIELD or ELOY fans.

D Sound Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

3 stars Zsolt Dezső Murguly formed D Sound in 1992, but by 1994 they had broken up due to the old onion 'musical differences'. Over the next eight years he kept writing material and over the last three years has been recording over 100 minutes worth of music with different musicians. It is this that has formed the basis of the album, although he has played most of the music himself as well as providing the vocals. The lyrics are in Hungarian but in truth that is not of great importance as they appear more for effect, with most of the album being instrumental. This is an album that has been heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, with touches of Ozrics here and there. It can be light and exciting, but often is dark and haunting. It is divided into four separate movements, and I kept thinking that at times this is what music would sound like if Pink Floyd were being led by Gordon Giltrap at a Hawkwind convention. It is spacey, effective, and very enjoyable. Contact the label at www.perifericrecords.com.

D Sound Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars D Sound's debut album is inspired by Pink Floyd, but I'd say they manage to carve out a little bit of space rock territory in their own right. Less heavy and abrasive than Hawkwind, slower and more contemplative than the Ozric Tentacles, less flippant than Gong and dreamier and spacier than the Dark Side of the Moon-era Pink Floyd they drew inspiration from this time around, the band provide a keyboard-heavy space trip which is gentle, mellow, and altogether a pleasure to experience. The weak link in the chain seems to be Zsolt Murguly's vocals, which are just about competent but aren't likely to win many awards, but with the long instrumental passages that are a focus of the album this isn't such a problem overall. A credible beginning.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Well here's another great Psychedelic / Space Rock band from Hungary to trip out on. The music is rhythmic, spacey and quite powerful. I thought of PINK FLOYD quite often. I wasn't expecting this to be so good but then I saw tszirmay's 5 star review and realized i'm not alone in my high praise for this one.

"Budafok" opens with percussion and guitar reminding me of FLOYD. Synths a minute in. It picks up a minute later then settles as contrasts continue. "Hold 1" opens with spacey synths but it turns heavy quickly. Vocals join in. Spacey synths and thunder end it. "Blues 2000" has a powerful undercurrent and vocals arrive a minute in. What a great sounding tune. "Kisember" opens with sounds that echo. Drums 2 1/2 minutes in,vocals follow. "Hold 2" is heavier with guitar playing over top. Vocals after a minute as it settles. It kicks back in heavily a minute later.

"Frog's Final Day" is spacey to start but it kicks in quickly. This song kicks ass. "Hold 3" has such a powerful rhythm to it. "Sodoma" has a good uplifting intro then it settles before a minute and vocals join in. It's still powerful though as contrasts continue. Love this song. "Otthon" opens with piano followed by heaviness before a minute. Nice. Check out the guitar after 3 minutes. Piano comes and goes. "Christine" sounds so good. A beat with guitar and synths as it builds. "Without Worlds" features guest female vocal melodies to start with synths. Piano and organ follow. A beat 1 1/2 minutes in then it turns heavy.The guitar sounds fantastic !

This is highly recommended to you space freaks out there.

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

5 stars Having reviewed this Hungarian band's second album and finding it a true surprise, I reverse engineered my way to finding and listening to their debut. The previously mentioned influences are even more overt her, with the astounding guitar phrasings of band leader Dezso Murguly (in the hungarian language , we put the last name first like the Chinese ,where the magyars originally came from to settle in Europe a thousand years ago). This creative land has already provided some truly first rate prog through the decades , to which we must include this delightful musical journey. Healthily sponged by the spirit of Floyd, the correctly indentified hints of Hawkwind (powerful rythm guitar base), Gong (swirling synths guiding the leads), Ozrics (they groove, man) and Sensation's Fix (the tone of the six-strings) are blended into an atmospheric trip that is enthralling and exhilarating , which is what Space-Prog is all about. As explained in the liner notes, "Kisember" means "Ordinary Man" and is inspired by Pink Floyd's "Division Bell" and the theme is :What is on the other Side of the Moon? Pretty good question, no ? Surprising no one thought about it, as it would seem to be a natural "Progression" , whay with the continued success of the" Dark Side of The Moon". First track - Budafok- lays down the carpet (red, of course) , preparing the adventure to follow. Second track -Hold ( Moon, in Hungarian) - wastes no time in blowing one headfirst at warp speed , smack into the deepest realms of space, with a relentlessly loud, almost leaden riff , mercilessly pounding the momemtum forward (Hello, Ozrics!) . The fourth track is the title theme track , a story on the hohum routine mixed with "nice or awful happenings in the world" and human restlessness, delivers on all counts with the exception of so-so vocals (he sings but he ain't no singer, dig?), which are not at all distracting from the superb music and that confounded gueetar.The midlle tracks are all excellent, spacey tribulations , setting us up for the last triumvirate of classic pieces , beginning with a world-class prog instrumental to die for, "Otthon" (Home), a Oldfieldian recurring piano motif , slashed by a hysterically controlled snake guitar phrasing , underpinned by electronic bass burps and farts (no, really) and a five and a half minute pure joyride , as good or better than anything you have ever heard. "Christine" is breathtaking , as it plows pitilessly into audience submission (Okay, its a fiver!) , relenting just in time to offer a farewell piece "Without Worlds". As the angelic voices rush to elevate the emotions, Dezso simply loses it in terms of melody, totally entranced and entrancing. While not an outright masterpiece, a debut like this cries out for recognition and the propulsion to continue their craft further into the future, so as one day (perhaps the third album?), the theme will be : "What is on the other side of Earth", as we all slowly melt away our planet and really need to start looking beyond the stars , wherelse can we rapidly destroy with our technology . Dream On! 5 pulis

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars I guess having purchased this album while on visit to Budapest, i am a bit biased but the truth is that Hungarian prog is rather well represented what with Solaris, After Crying, East, Janos Varga Project and the fabulous Musical Witchcraft projects leaving some solid monuments for us hungry (sic) prog fans. This album is "a grows on you" typical prog album, mostly instrumental, with two vocal tracks , one so-so (and the only weak moment here) and the other the complete opposite, "Jeg Vilag"("Ice World") , a real prog winner. The third track, "Balkanon innen" and the aforementioned by my dutch pal Erik, "Challangar" , are rather stunning musical interpretations. In all, the whole disc is very worthy of your money, as the playing is truly first rate, (the drums a tad thin though), with a strong penchant for spacey rythms as opposed to more Hawkwind/Gong/Ozric power space rock. The references here are more in the Oldfieldian vein, with hints of Sensation's Fix (the way the synths blend into the guitar) and perhaps the overall feeling of the two Summers-Fripp projects , with lots of rippling guitar , sweeping synths and heady atmospherics cortesy of Tibor Ladanyi. I liked the music evenmore when placed between other more typical prog albums , because of the rather relaxed, non pretentious , soundtrackish qualities this Magyar band clearly possess. I guess the next opus may be "The Big One" , so we will keep tabs on them. In the meantime, fans of Eloy, Nektar, Hillage and the above mentioned will take to this album to their spaceship consoles and embark on a trip to the stars. 4.5 csillag (stars in Hungarian)

Review by erik neuteboom
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This is the second album from Hungarian four piece band D Sound. The opener "Karpat- medencei hangulat" features a wonderful, a bit spacey climate with keyboards (mainly strings) and percussion. The build-up is strong when a sensitive electric guitar enters and the atmosphere gradually becomes more bombastic. The second song "Doromb" contains the same ethnic elements as fellow Hungarians Solaris, very disctinctive. Most of the following nine compositions alternates between mellow and more bombastic, often Mike Oldfield comes to my mind. It sounds very pleasant and melodic, the sound is very clear and the interplay between the guitars and keyboards is very inventive. On "Challangar" a slow rhythm culminates into a final part with heavy guitar riffs and the sound of the dramatic countdown and crash from the Challenger capsule. The magnum opus on this CD is "73 mp - Challangar 2. " (at about 13 minutes), it contains acoustic rhythm guitar and then the Mike Oldfield-like atmosphere enters, very beautiful. The track "Gyemant Nap" delivers a slow rhythm with a bombastic climate including propulsive drum beats and sensitive electric guitar. The final song "Kozelebb a Naphoz" has soaring keyboards and spacey, slightly distorted guitar runs. This is a very tasteful, varied and modern sounding album featuring pleasant keyboards and lots of Mike Oldfield-inspired climates, WONDERFUL!
