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 without the permission of the band by an italian label Mellow Records). During the recording process the bass guitarist Tomasz Kaczmarczyk left the band and his part was played by Paweł Konieczny who at this moment took the bassist's role leaving the drums to Grzegorz Olszowski.
After the release of the cassette the band got a new manager Aleksander Król who, along with Sick Records Europe, decided to issue the band's new material on a cassette and CD. The selftitled album was issued in 1995. After this release ALBION took part in many festivals and concerts in Poland. (Tuzvihar,


Albion recorded their first song, "Scarecrow," in 1993 and it was a big hit on Radio Krakow. In 1995, the CD Survival Games was released by Mellow Records (Italy) and consists of neo-progressive rock songs with English lyrics, female vocals, and guitar parts very comparable to Steve Rothery's Marillion work. Later, the band re-recorded the CD plus three new tracks with Polish vocals. The female vocals gave the band their own style but their music sometimes also sounds like Marillion and Jadis.
