Satellite biography
Formed in Poland in 2000

The Polish progressive band COLLAGE are somewhat legendary within the genre. With several albums under their belts, their album "Moonshine" is considered a staple within the subgenre. COLLAGE eventually broke up, but Wojtek Szadkowski still had the fire within him. "I wanted to go back to the beginnings, to playing music spontaneously, music which could be played without any barriers, to feel this fresh breeze of creativity again. ... It was like a new beginning for me. I wanted to start from the scratch to feel creative again, and to feel a particular uncertainty, which one can experience only in the beginning of writing new music for a totally new project."

Initially, SATELLITE started as a solo project for Wojtek, but took on a completely different life of its own. He finished some vocals and arranged some basic background, but some textures were better provided outside of himself. He met Sarhan Kubeisi, who ironically was a drummer in a friend's band. After hearing him play so beautifully on a song, he knew he had his guitarist.

Wotjek needed a vocalist...plain and simple. So, who better than his old bandmate from COLLAGE than Robert Amirian, who also plays bass. Remarks Wotjek, "Great, distinctive voice, very fluent English language and outstanding sensitivity. Robert agreed to participate". On keyboards, he brought on another COLLAGE alum in Krzysiek Palczewski. Natural comparisons to COLLAGE are expected.

"A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset" debuted on March 10, 2003. Its follow-up, "Evening Games" (2006), reached number 8 at the top 100 best-selling albums in Poland.

In 2007, SATELLITE were invited to play the famous Baja Prog Festival in Mexico and released "Into The Night" towards the latter part of the year. Since then they have added bassist, Jarek Michalski to the band, freeing Robert to concentrate on vocals.

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

4 stars While Satellite may be a new name in the prog field, and 'A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset' their debut album, this is a band that have been formed out of one of Poland's most well-known and best-loved prog acts, Collage. Originally this was set to be a solo project by drummer and main Collage songwriter Wojtek Szadkowski but he gradually brought in more and more musicians, many of whom he had performed with in Collage. They are signed to Metal Mind, the most important label of it's' type in Poland, and the artwork has been provided by Mark Wilkinson of Marillion/Fish fame. In fact, if you look at the Satellite site at www.satelliteprog.com you can see the whole series of covers that he designed for this, a real work in progress.

But what about the music? The band themselves have compared it most to 'Moonshine' era Collage but how about Western proggers who may have never heard that band? In fact there is a lot going on, and while certain influences such as Genesis and Pendragon or Pink Floyd can be picked out, it is easier to say that this is easy listening prog that is thoroughly enjoyable throughout. The album is sung in English, and in fact the feel is that this is an American project and not a Polish one at all. The album starts with street noise and a snippet of a radio commentator, and the impression is a bustling American city. That is an intriguing way into the first song, "The Evening Wind", which at nearly thirteen minutes long is a great start. Of course, the guitar can't be hidden totally by the keyboards and there are some very powerful plays indeed. A particular favourite has to be "No Disgrace" which is a belting prog rock number driven along by dynamic percussion and sizzling keyboard runs.

This could easily be the most important album out of Poland this year, and the finest I have heard from that country since Quidam. Which one is the better? The jury is still out.

3 stars Satellite's first three albums formed a sort of trilogy of day, evening and night, so Nostalgia marked the start of a new era for the band, being their first album outside of this context. Once again, Satellite put an even bigger emphasis on drawing on more non-prog influences to spice up their sound, as is particularly notable in the keyboards and drums on this release. Recorded in Wojtek Szadkowski's home studio, it's entertaining enough, but to my ears the mix is a little off - particularly with regards to the drums, which I feel are a little overwhelming. Still, fans of the band's combination of dance music rhythms with neo-prog will find it entertaining.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars Satellite follows up the more traditional neo-prog release Evening Games with Into the Night, on which they once again try to incorporate more modern (particularly modern electronic-leaning) musical influences into their sound, creating a more diverse piece of work than either of their preceding albums. On Evening Games they'd already mastered melodic neo-prog and gentler musical approaches, whilst on Into the Night they show a greater flair for louder and more raucous outbreaks of technical virtuosity. It's another very strong album which shows how the band's musical talents have matured like fine wine over the years, and will appeal to most fans of neo-prog, though I find it a little colder emotionally speaking than Evening Games.

4 stars Satellite's debut album had a really great cover but musically speaking was somewhat average; their second album, Evening Games, has a completely atrocious cover (seriously, what is it with bands accepting miserably poor CGI when an amateur DeviantArt artist could do better for cheaper?) but musically speaking is a substantial improvement. The balance this time has swung more towards the band's symphonic and neo-prog side and less towards the spacey, ambient, almost dance music-inspired rhythms that underpinned the previous album (though they are still present here and there), and on the whole the mixture is far more successful this time around. Those who miss the old classic Collage sound will find it alive and well here.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars The prospect of a spiritual successor band to Collage, one of the absolute greats of the Polish neo-prog scene, is surely enough to make any neo fan excited. As it stands, though, Satellite's debut album shows potential but does not quite live up to it to my ears.The interesting experiment of having dance music rhythms underpin a lot of the songs (there's even a song with preprogrammed drums) with neo-progish keyboard and guitar solos over the top was probably worth a try, but here at least they don't quite mesh into a coherent whole. Still, the Mark Wilkinson cover art (which seems to be his take on the cover to Neil Young's Trans) is a nice touch.

Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Two years after their beautiful debut, Satellite return with a second album but without Mirek Gil on board, who went on to form Believe.Absent in the line-up is also bassist Przemek Zawadzki.They were replaced by bassist Piort Zaczek, while Sarhan took over both lead and rhythm guitars.''Evening games'' was released again on Metal Mind Records and became one of the most succesful rock albums in Poland.

And not just accidentally, as this one is an album that defines what modern Polish Prog is all about with Satellite's sound being synonymous to the term.The great 17-min. eponymous opener is propably the perfect example of this style.A mix of contemporary Symphonic Rock, COLLAGE-styled Neo Prog and Psych/Ambient/Space Rock, where power meets softness and roughness gives its place to delicacy.The rest of the album is certainly defined by this description.An album full of sudden breaks but always based in melody, where deep atmosphere is the undisputed king.Smooth parts with light guitars, sensitive warm vocal lines and soft piano burst radically into dynamic passages with powerful solos, grandiose keyboards and a symphonic attitude.And a big part of Satellite's sound is the alternation between normal and distorted vocals, the constant use of sound effects and the careful use of analog keyboards as well like organ and mellotron.The electric guitars have an evident PINK FLOYD vibe, especially in the solo parts, while COLLAGE's ghost seems to be all over the place due to the high quality of the musicianship, characterized by the grandiose synths, the elegant vocals of Amirian and the light symphonic sound.

Another huge album by this excellent Polish band, maybe a little better compared to their debut.Contemporary prog means ''Evening games'' to me and the album comes as an essential addition to any collection of a decent prog fan...4.5 stars.

Thanks to ProgLucky; Eric Walker for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
