The Soulmen Slovak rock band

The Soulmen were a Slovak rock band singing in English, that existed from 1967 to 1968. Together with The Beatmen they were the most important Slovak Big Beat bands. They are often considered the successors of The Beatmen and often mentioned alongside of them in the literature, partly because of the presence of legendary Dežo Ursiny in both bands and also of the name in the similar style, but their music was a significant shift in style - The Beatmen more or less didn't cross the borders of the Mersey sound, whereas The Soulmen's music was already more similar to the contemporary western RnB and rock music. Cream is often cited as the main influence on The Soulmen's music. The band was a power trio consisting of guitarist Dežo Ursiny, bassist Fedor Frešo and drummer Vlado Mallý, all of them contributing to vocals as well. They would later become members of several subsequent popular Czechoslovak bands, such as Prúdy, Collegium Musicum and Fermata. Ursiny, after dismissing his Provisorium would go on a solo career in the seventies.

While never achieving mainstream popularity, the band was among the most influential formations on the Czech/Slovak music scene in the 1970s, drawing comparisons to the Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and featured some of the foremost Slovak rock instrumentalists, including Fedor Frešo (bass), František Griglák (guitar), and others. Known for their live performances, Collegium Musicum enjoyed a revival through touring in the late 1990s and early 2000s, particularly among younger generations.
