this album has totally caught me off guard! Where their first album
"Extension of the Wish" was a solid piece of progressive
metal, their second album "II=I" never really caught my
attention, so I didn't have a whole lot of expectations for this their
3rd album "Chimera".
boy was I wrong!
album possesses everything you could wish in a progressive metal album;
fast and heavy parts, melodic parts, a very strong rhythm section, great
guitar leads, great choirs, great and precise keyboards, blistering
guitar riffs and an outstanding vocalist.
the songs are excellent crafted, actually a bit simple structured (I
know it's a contradiction in terms to call it progressive then!), filled
with well executed breaks and just plain and simple outstanding!
musicians show great skills - I really like the drumming on this album.
The album has an outstanding sound and will hopefully gain much deserved
attention, not only among progressive metal fans.
like Sieges Even blew me out of my socks last year, so has Andromeda
done with this brilliant piece of excellent progressive metal. The album
grows with each spin in my CD-player, and I love everything about it...
if you like your metal the progressive way, then you need to experience
this piece of art - I for one will keep praising this album to everyone,
BUY the album!
