Viktor Albert

Viktor Albert is a Hungarian musician. He is best known as the drummer of the Hungarian rock band Dawnstar. He co-founded Dawnstar along with Attila Wind and Bálint Hamvas in 2001.

Musical influences
Albert is a huge U2 fan, but he listens to music bands from different genres such as grunge, metal and alternative rock.

Personal life
Albert is a keen mushroom hunter. He spends his free time with going on excursions in the mountains close to Budapest.

Instruments

1. Tama RockStar (drum-kit)
2. Zildjian (cymbals)


Although Albert owns a Tama RockStar drum-kit and Zildjian cymbal set, he played many different drum kits during Dawnstar concerts. During festivals (such as Fringe and Donaukanaltreiben) Albert did not use his own drum kit because bands have little time to echange the whole drum kit. However, during concerts, organised by Dawnstar, Albert used his own drum kit.

On 6 June 2009 Dawnstar were invited to play at the Donaukanaltreiben Festival, Vienna, Austria. Although the band brought the full drum kit with them, Albert played on a drum kit previously set on stage.

On 10 April 2010 Dawnstar played a show at the Pécsi Fringe Festival. The concert was held at the Pécsi Est Café. Albert did not bring his own drum kit since a full drum kit was provided for bands at the festival.

On 27 November 2015, Dawnstar were invited to play a show at Szilvuplé Varieté. The main band were Steal and they offered their drum kit so Albert could play on a Tama drum kit. The concert was repeated couple of months later, where Albert played on the same drum kit on 12 February 2016.
