Black Satellite is a rock duo from NYC comprised of Larissa Vale and Kyle Hawken. Having been writing music together for several years, Black Satellite is the culmination of a deep-rooted partnership contributing to their unified writing style. Shortly after launching their first single “Valkyrie” from their full-length album Endless, Black Satellite was requested as support for Starset at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre on the strength of their debut.

Billboard describes the album as “the end point one might arrive at after listening to all of Muse’s catalog and deciding they just weren’t epic enough.” Black Satellite was named one of Alternative Press’ “12 Bands You Need to Know” in a print issue of the magazine. They subsequently released two cover songs paying tribute to Type O Negative, which charted on metal radio.

The band released their sophomore album Aftermath, mixed by veteran producer Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Filter, Breaking Benjamin) in 2020. Their single “Void” had Knotfest commenting on the track: “the first single offers a glimpse into the bold, stylishly dark sound that has made the duo of Larissa Vale and Kyle Hawken such a promising prospect.” In 2021, they released a cover of Rammstein’s “Sonne” to critical acclaim with Revolver Magazine describing the track as “a masterclass in metal covers.”
