Satinoxide is a Dutch progressive metal band from Middelburg. Founding members are Oscar Postema (vocals, piano and synths), Martijn van der Bliek (electric and acoustic guitars) and Marloes Matthijssen (piano and synths). Satinoxide creates transcendental metal: progressive metal with lots of different influences.
Satinoxide is the new incarnation of the symphonic metal band Cassiopeia, in which Oscar, Martijn and Marloes already made music together. Friends Oscar and Martijn go back a long way: in 1996 they started to write songs under the name of Tremor, which was later changed into Cassiopeia. Marloes joined the band in 1999, to take over the synths from Oscar so he could focus on vocals and performance.
