Album Review

During an era when most heavy metal bands wallowed in their own misery, singing about pain and sadness, P.O.D. offered a more optimistic alternative. The band had been releasing music since the late '90s, but it was this album rather than its commercially overlooked predecessor, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown (1998), that reached out to countless listeners. Quite simply, you can't deny the emotion P.O.D. funnels into its songs. The sentiment feels genuine, as if this band truly cares about its listeners, one of the key reasons why this album shook the metal world in 2002. And, as most listeners will no doubt agree, it did so for the better. The metal world needed an album like Satellite in 2002, just like it needed a band like P.O.D. to challenge longtime metal heavyweights like Tool and Korn for supremacy. The spiritual, emotional band writes songs about promise and hope — songs that inspire you to celebrate life, not despise it. It's not just the singing of vocalist Sonny either, though his soaring voice has much to do with it. Rather, it's the band as a whole that gives the songs on Satellite so much affective power. These four guys obviously love making music together, and that passion comes across in every song. Guitarist Marco, bassist Traa, and drummer Wuv fuse a variety of influences — metal, hip-hop, dub, Rage Against the Machine — and create music that stands on its own, apart from the many other nu-metal bands of the time. In particular, "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation" stand out as rallying calls for metal fans looking for music about living, not dying.

pure class, their best album yet. highlights being Alive, Youth of the Nation, Satellite, Anything Right and Thinking About Forever. youth of the Nation has a really good message as well as having replay value. Thinking about Forever also has pretty good lyrics too. this will please metal fans allover. better than the album Payable On Death (it had come out by the time i wrote this). i picked this one up at my local HMV so it is an accessable album. dont miss it

P.O.D - Satellite

Satellite is an awesome (and perhaps P.O.D.'s best) album which brings together the band's different influences into one brilliant masterpiece that is sung with so much emotion and passion. Filled with hope and powered by such energy, Satellite deservedly pushed P.O.D. into the limelight at a time when other "nu-metal" bands such as Korn could do no better than channel their angst and pain into hard rock.


Awesome! Bought this album because i heard the track alive on the tv, searched for it, and then found here! Alive is an awesome track, as are most, with a few which don't quite hit the button but all tracks have a nifty line to them!! Go buy!!!!!!


Formed: 1992 in San Diego, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

While they play around with the infectious grooves of reggae and Latin music as well as the heavy deliverance of hip-hop and rock, San Diego's hard rock four-piece P.O.D. have defined a universal message. They're born-again Christians and their faith takes a central place in their music. In the SoCal neighborhood of San Ysidro, Marcos (guitar) and Wuv (drums) relished the music they grew up on. San Ysidro or "Southtown" was a multicultural area and working class. While Marcos and Wuv were fond of...
