Biography

Originally formed in October of 2003, Omaha, Nebraska based Shooting Down Satellites are a new band with a unique style of progressive riffs with driving vocals, and a tight knit rhythm section. However, members Zac Larson, Matt Denker, Jeff Buettgenbach, and Alan Larson are no newcomers to the music scene. Each hailing from formerly established local bands, the four came together to create a finely tuned machine. Starting out as a 3 piece with Zac, Jeff, and Matt, S.D.S. began writing together creating unique guitar riffs with driving back beats, and the piercing, melodic vocals of Zac topping the creations. The chemistry between the three was surreal and instant.

The search for the right bass player for the project was not an easy task. In 2005, after many auditions, the final piece was put into place as Alan Larson on Bass Guitar. With the final member, the machine could now function properly.

S.D.S. began gigging regularly in the summer of 2005 playing local venues in the Omaha and Lincoln areas. They quickly gained a following of local fans and the buzz continues as this band keeps progressing.

Giving away energy and pure emotion is the driving force behind S.D.S.

It's all about...

Lyrics

Coming Down

Written By: Zac Larson

Can you see inside?
All these times we learn to live in time
Do you ever think?
Go behind the eyes, there hiding something
Now I’m trapped inside
Waiting for the lies, deep in your soul
Silence seems to be
The only way you can cut through to me

Will the sickness leave?
Find me by myself, I’m low and sinking
I tried to heal these wounds
It seems to come back around for nothing
But this time you’ll finally see
Why I have been waiting so patiently

Coming Down
Don’t hide from this world
Coming Down
To watch you suffer
Coming Down
Can you let the world in?
Coming Down
To watch you suffer

Just let it be
Just let it find its way back to me

Coming Down
Don’t hide from this world
Coming Down
To watch you suffer
Coming Down
Can you let the world in?
Coming Down
To watch you suffer

Voices never leave
Silence is still in me
I’ve tried everything
Just to leave the hopes and dreams behind me

Coming Down
Don’t hide from this world
Coming Down
To watch you suffer
Coming Down
Can you let the world in
Coming Down
To watch you suffer

Just let it be
Just let it find me I’m the same

Blood Soaked

Written By: Zac Larson

Bleed, like you bleed before me
Every time you move
Crawl, crawl out the same way
Now you see the truth

Blood soaked for days
I can’t remember what to say
Blood soaked for years
But this time you’ll see me move

Lie, just like all your words do
That you left in me
You, you sit here staring
Waiting to see strait through

Blood soaked for days
Words never seem to find the way
Blood soaked for years
It’s too late for you

And can we ever forget the pain
Can we remember the nights spent in vain?
And you need a little more than nothing
Can’t you see?

Time, time is on your side now
Please just let me down

Blood soaked for days
I just remembered what to say
I’ve been waiting for years
But somehow I stay right here
