Hungarian progressive rock band Solaris got its start in 1980. The group was formed by István Cziglán (guitar), Róbert Erdész (keys), Attila Kollár (flute), Attila Seres (bass), and Vilmos Tóth (drums). They took their name, and the content of all their songs, from classic science fiction. They released their self-titled debut the same year. Other musicians who have made their way into the Solaris camp at varying times include Csaba Bogdán (guitar), Tamás Pócs (bass), László Gömör (drums), Gábor Kisszabó (bass), and Ferenc Raus (drums). During the course of their career, Solaris has released a number of other albums. Those albums are Marsbéli Krónikák -- Martian Chronicles (1984; reissued as Martian Chronicles in Japan in 1989 and also reissued in Hungary under the original title in 1995), Solaris 1990 (1990), Live in Los Angeles (1996), Nostradamus (1999), and Los Angeles 2026 (2000).
