Neo Prog band from Poland with female vocals.
Very beautiful and melodic compositions in
a nice atmosphere. "Albion" mixes short and
long compositions, and sometimes the influence
of bands like MARILLION become very clear.
Close to the powerful neo Progressive rock,
ALBION reminds of MARILLION, IQ and JADIS,
with a Steve HACKETT style of guitar sound
and subtle keyboard parts.
ALBION came into existence in 1992 when
members of two dissolving bands from Cracow
decided to start a new band.
At the beginning the band consisted of
the following four members:
Jerzy Antczak (guitars), Krzysztof Malec (keyboards),
Paweł Konieczny (drums) and
Tomasz Kaczmarczyk (bass guitar).
After a short period of time joined Anna Batko taking
the role of the vocalist.
This lineup started to work on the material which was
to appear on ALBION's first release.
It was issued in 1994 under the title "Survival Games"
by Art-Rock but only on a cassette (it was reissued
next year on CD by italian label Mellow Records).
