P. Box (which stood for the name Pandora's Box) is a Hungarian hard rock band formed by two ex-P. Mobil members: Sándor Bencsik and István Cserháti in 1980. The band disbanded in 1986 due to Cserháti's settling in Debrecen, which is 220 km from the capital city Budapest. The band was revived in 2001 by Cserháti, with the members of Szfinx and Aberra. On August 21, 2005, Cserháti died in cancer. He was 51 years old. In November 2005, the band changed the official name to Pandora's Box.
The band broke up in 2006, giving their last concerts on 3 November 2006, in Debrecen and on 11 November 2006, in Budapest. They returned on the Summer of 2009. Meanwhile, two ex-members, József Sáfár and István Szabó formed another band with the same name.
