More than 50 million records sold, LP productions in Hungarian, German and English, tours and festival appearances throughout Europe and Japan, at least 50 cover versions or adaptations of the world hit "Gyngyhaj lny" - Omega are Hungary's number one rock export 

In 2022, the band will be celebrating its 60th stage anniversary, making it one of the longest- serving rock formations in the world."200 Years After The Last War" (1974) only shares the title track, a metaphoric piece about birth control in a totalitarian system, with the original legendary banned Hungarian version "200 vvel az utols h bor ut n".The almost 20-minute "suite" on side A, originally released on OMEGA 5 in 1973, combines various infuences from which the Hungarians developed their own style at the time: Blues, early Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple.

Having produced the last three records at the Dierks Studios, this time they turned to the Chipping Norton Studios in England, and came back with an acoustic hybrid of Focus, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Sparks and Cockney Rebel. The sound was drier than before, the guitars were crisper, the keyboards more dominant. The orchestral arrangements gave the entire album a touch of space
