Krypton was a Romanian heavy metal turned pop rock band that was formed in 1982 by founder Eugen Mihaiescu. During the heavy metal years of the band, the group was able to record and release three albums. Their first recordings, all in the Romanian language, were made in 1982 and released on a various artist album entitled "Formapil Rock 7", but it wasn't until 1988 that Krypton was able to release a solo album of their own. In 1988, "30 Minute" was recorded and released.

By 1989, drummer Niki Dinescu left the band. A replacement for Dinescu was found, and the band recorded "Fara Teama" in 1990. The following year, 1991, the band released their third album entitled "Lanturile" which featured the same heavy metal sound as the previous albums.

Prior to 2000, the band saw a constant shift in the line up. Former band members include:
* Gabriel "Gurita" Nicolau - Vocals
* Sandu "Butelie" Costel - Vocals (Harap Alb, Tectonic, Voltaj, Act, Interval Quartz, Transilvania
* Dragos Docan - Vocals, Bass
* Manuel Savu - Guitar
* George Patranoiu - Guitar
* Valentin Stoian - Keyboards
* Razvan Lupu "Lapi" - Drums
* Viorel Piţigoi - drums (Krater, Kilometrul 0, Contrapunct)
* Cãtãlin Tuþã - keyboards
* Andy Nucã - guitar
* Bogdan Cristea - vocals
* Niki Dinescu (drums - 1986 -1989)
* Sorin Voinea - keyboards
* Gabi Nacu - guitar

In 2000, Razvan Fodor joined the band as lead vocalist. The line-up then consisted of:
* Razvan Fodor - vocals
* Eugen Mihaescu - guitars, vocals
* Marcis Nut - bass
* Stefan "Linda" Moisa - drums

With Fodor on vocals, the band shifted from heavy metal to a more rock/pop orientation. The result was immediate commercial success in the Romanian music market. [5] The album "Comercial", released in 2001, featured the video hit "Iti mai aduci aminte". In 2002, Krypton released their second CD album to feature Fodor on vocals, "Stresat de timp". A video for the song, "Cerceii tai," from that album was released in June of 2002 and received extensive airplay via MTV Romania. [6]

In 2004, Krypton signed with Cat Music/Media Services and released their third album with Fodor in December entitled "Deasupra Lumii". By the beginning of 2005, "Lasa-mi speranta," the first video release from the album, became an immediate hit in Romania and Europe. [7] Fodor was given notice by the European music community for his lead vocals for the song. "Lasa-mi speranta" became an MTV European favorite during 2005 [8] .

In 2006, Razvan Fodor left Krypton to pursue his carear as a solo artist as well as to enhance his acting carear.
