  • Description

    Colorful vinyl limited to 500 units - long awaited re-issue from the most successful creative period of the most famous Hungarian rock band Omega - For fans of Jane, Eloy, Uriah Heep, Asia.

    Omega, the most successful Hungarian prog rock band, released their best material in the 70s, and "Time Robber" is considered the musical highlight of Omega's discography. The heart of the LP is the title track, flanked by "House Of Cards Part I & II". The nearly 13-minute work encapsulates exactly what Omega was all about in 1976: progressive space rock mixed with hard rock elements.

    After four studio albums and one compilation, the Hungarian top stars Omega were still an insider tip in the West. But there was a noticeable upward trend in the sales figures, even if the sales were far from going through the roof. In addition, the band had developed and become more professional both live and in their appearance. Bacillus/Bellaphon wanted to keep Omega at all costs and extended the quintet's contract in 1976 until 1980. The band moved into the Europasound Studios in Offenbach with Peter Hauke and recorded "Time Robber" there. The LP was Omega's breakthrough in the West. To date, the album is said to have sold around two million copies. And this success was no accident, as the Hungarians delivered a complex, self-contained work for the first time.
