Exodus

Exodus are a Polish symphonic rock band, active 1976-1985. Probably the best Polish symphonic group. It was founded in 1976. From the beginning, the musicians had concrete, defined musical interests. Their intention was to play rock music strongly influenced by classical music. Some people call them Polish YES because of the symphonic sound and high, delicate vocal of Pawel Birula. They used to play mainly at the Warsaw student club Riviera-Remont where they had a lot of young fans. In the first half of 80-ies EXODUS had a tournee in the USSR and West Germany. They recorded a few TV programs, did many radio recordings and released a few singles that were received very well. But singles don't adequately render the specific character of their music. They had the tendency for creating bigger forms of music and wanted their concerts to become para-theatrical shows. In 1980 they released the first album The Most Beautiful Day here they placed a few shorter lyrical tracks and 20-minute great title suite. In 1982 the second album appeared Supernova. The symphonic rock was in crisis and the musicians directed more into shorter forms however very beautiful and lyrical. The lyrics are very important, so to appreciate the whole album it is necessary to know them.
