Profile Tublatanka is a Slovak rock band formed in the fall of 1982 in Bratislava, Slovakia best known for the hits Pravda víťazí and Dnes. The classic lineup consisted of Maťo Ďurinda (also known as Martin Durinda), Palo Horváth, and Ďuro Černý from 1982-1992. In 1992, Palo left the band leaving Martin and Ďuro to record their 1993 album with Martin composing guitar and bass melodies. Ďuro left the band in 1995 due to complications with drugs.

In August 1994, the band attended a music show in the Polish city of Sopot with its song “Ja sa vrátim” (I will Return). For the first time a drummer, Dušan Giertl, and their new band manager at the time managed the band from 1993 until 1997. So the new lineup of Tublatanka was formed and they began to prepare a new album and started practicing a new concert repertoire. Even a partly cured Ďuro Černý re-joined the band and a new CD Znovuzrodenie (Rebirth) was recorded. At the beginning of 1994, the band won a competition on STV and represented their country in the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin, Ireland with their song “Nekonečná pieseň” (Neverending Song). The band placed at the 17th place out of 25, so after their return to Slovakia only negative press and bad reviews welcomed them.

Their sixth album contain some really impressive and powerful songs like the opening “Život ako naozaj”  having great riffs and exceptional changes of lead vocals between Ďurinda and Dubán, followed by the rockin’ “Najkrajšie ženy sveta” and it’s great Dubán’s solo. The radio friendly “Bez tvojej lásky” is another highlight of the disk with great and catchy harmony chorus from Ďurinda and Dubán. The ballad “Niekto ?a má rád” and my personal anthem “Blízko nás” with great harmonies and an exploded chorus are the best moment of the record. An album with pure rock songs, a new lineup, new blood, and one in the whole hilarious rock sticks that way but found some fans that he was dismissed…
