“Kikalapált dalok” (‘Hammered Songs’ in English) is a tribute album to Kalapács that presents a peculiar union of nearly 150 musicians, since it was recorded with the participation of 30 acclaimed bands of the Hungarian metal scene. As this is a tribute album, the CD cover artwork is also a tribute to one of the greatest bands of heavy metal – Judas Priest with the Ram It Down. This intentionally familiar remake design was chosen to refer to the title of the album. A new song from “Kikalapált dalok” is introduced every weekday until the release date on the Hammer Music Hungary YouTube channel. Check out the full playlist below!
