Dávid Makó, besides having spent years fronting Stereochrist and Haw, two of Hungary’s premiere stoner / doom bands has reached deep within his soul and tapped into his primal instincts and heritage to come up with songs so pure that it makes it hard for listeners not to be moved instantly by the intensity and sincerity of his anthems of love, hate, desperatioin and joy. Walking along the lines of American folk music and Hungarian traditionals, successfully merging two worlds one would think couldn’t be further away. The Devil’s Trade is a one man gang chained to some burden that he pulls through his wys leaving tracks behind to lead or guide mostly him which directions not to and which to go again. The legs are old, wounded up to the knees as the tracks are that deep and filled with sticks and stones, but strict marks that lead him where to arrive. His music is the dust he shakes during this pilgrimage of his.
After popping up nearly every corner of Hungary and select European shows, Those Miles We Walked Alone, his critically acclaimed self-released 2014 debut album just got a makeover, with five extra songs recorded for a deluxe vinyl release through A38 Records on the 1st August, 2016.
With the new record under his belt, Dávid has toured Europe twice, opening for ‘Crippled Black Phoenix’ and ‘Publicist UK’ in December 2016 and being the special guest of Boysetsfire singer Nathan’s ‘Nathan Gray Collective’ in April 2017. The two tours, among countless performances and festivals in his homeland earned him a fanbase so loyal and dedicated he sold out of the 1st press of the vinyl LP and CD without a distributor or a PR agency behind his back, purely by winning over listeners wherever he may have popped up. The Devil’s Trade’s yet untitled sophomore album will see the light of day in September 2018 through Germany’s Golden Antenna Records on both LP/CD.
