Hard is a Hungarian hard rock supergroup formed in late 2004 in Budapest, Hungary. The band was formed by József Kalapács (ex-vocalist of Pokolgép and Omen, currently also singing in Kalapács) and Gábor Mirkovics (ex-bass guitarist of EDDA Művek). The rest of the band were Zsolt Csillik guitarist (ex-Dance, Jack Daniels and Fix), Dénes Makovics keyboardist (plays saxophone in Bikini) and drummer Zoltán Váry (ex-Sing Sing, ex-Zero-G, guitars/vocals for the Hungarian KISS tribute band KISS Forever Band). In 2005, Ferenc Béres arrived to fill in the position of Dénes Makovics, who was a session member for the studio recording of the first release, Égni kell. He played in EDDA Művek and Fix beforehand. In 2007, Váry left because of the German success of KISS Forever Band (he couldn't concentrate on Hard enough), so Donászy arrived, who also played in e.g. Beatrice.
