Rémember's music is mostly allegro or allegretto. Post-grunge-alt-punk-rock-rap-crossover-psychedelia from Wudigess (aka Budakeszi). Active years: 1995-2007. N.B. "rémember" is a Hun word for 'apparition man'

Press.

Back at the Barfly, the house is packed out for Rémember...swaggering rock laced with psychedelic interludes and impressive guitar work
(Rock Sound (UK))

The combination of radio friendly metal riffs and dark pop harmonies sounds more like the sort of band Josh Homme would invite on tour
(bbc.co.uk)

Hard-edged, off the wall, psychedelic rock with a Hungarian twist. Influenced by Floyd/The Velvets but executed with a contemporary style that makes them very now. They look like a great band, they sound like  a great band. Remember…how could you possibly forget?
(Notion (UK))

Rémember upload a new track every week and never cease to amaze me how good each one is. This week it's Rage Against The Machine meets Chili Peppers (maybe at the BodyFarm?) Seriously killer riffs and vocals that make you sit up and take notice.

You know what to expect from Remember by now – amusing hair and enormously groovy funk rock….The high Don Henley-style lyrics encased in a world of reverb makes Remember stick in your brain. …The third song is a hit in the making and they should certainly pursue a career in England. 
(bbc.co.uk)

a band looking to bring their unique blend of electro funk and punk rock style to an unsuspecting UK...As well as providing light relief from the recent swathe of clone indie bands, Rémember have an undoubted pedigree and insatiable energy
(Invincible (UK))

Their sound and the on-stage video background projection makes their music totally unique. During the psychedelic parts the guys were spiritualized and they accompanied the heavy parts with an intensive headbang.../...The frequent voice effect made the performance even more bizarre.
(Metal Hammer (H))
