Almost every song is a classic with memorable melodies and vocal lines.
Nelson Tañon
It has yet to leave my player for as long as I could remember... A fantastic come out from Sweden's Premier Progressive Metal Band: ANDROMEDA.

Andromeda returns with yet another stellar album. It has been 3 to 4 years since II=I was released. I am speechless after listening to Chimera over and over again.. It consumes me entirely.. Andromeda succeeded once more with their technical proficiency of their musical instruments. The band is better ever than before... This time Andromeda has recruited a fifth member to make this new album an album that surpasses everything else they have ever done before... The inputs of an additional member has contributed to this amazing powerful album. The mastery of melodies, dynamics, heaviness, technics, compositions, solo etc.... shines out. You'll be hooked listening to Chimera zillions of times once you put the disc in your cd player. It has yet to leave my player for as long as I could remember... A fantastic come out from Sweden's Premier Progressive Metal Band: ANDROMEDA.

Ok so far I have written two reviews already for this release within the review guidelines and neither have been posted on here, why? Hopefully this will be third time lucky.

Look for Andromeda history in the reviews posted for their other releases. So the Swedish progressive metal outfit Andromeda released their third (and most recent at this point) album and second with most band members contributing to the writing process (their first album 'Extension of the Wish' being written entirely by guitarist Johan Reinholdz) in 2006 on their new label Massacre. Andromeda play a style of progressive metal not too far removed from your usual Dream Theater mold, however Andromeda have the gift of writing SONGS with progressive elements attached, not progressive elements with songs attached. Over the course of the first two albums Andromeda played two pretty different sounds and Chimera is the result of the band mixing these two sounds with better songwriting, more dynamics, more diversity (not that diversity is missing from the previous albums) and some added flair.

Andromeda have quiet a unique sound, which can be hard to find among modern power/prog outfits. It's pretty much a given that any band playing this style of metal is going to bear some kind of resemblance/similarity to Dream Theater, Andromeda is no exception, the guitar and keyboard tradeoffs and the many time signature changes throughout the songs do have a certain DT sound to them, however Andromeda are one of the few bands of this style that do sound like they are trying to steer away from being another DT clone.

Nice follow up to II=I. Although I don't know if this album surpasses II=I, they once again display amazing odd time signatures, while not losing any kick. This album is a little more straight forward (no instrumental rampages quite like II=I). Fremberg's voice is certainly one of a kind and he could easily be found in a production on Broadway. The drummer, Lejon, is once again obscuring the time signatures with offbeat chops and is superb.

Progressive metal. Very heavy. Loud. Awesome drumming. Melodic. Great all the way through. Well thought out. Fantastic. Grown on me.

I find this release to be underrated by most Andromeda fans. This is by far one of their most balanced and accessible releases. Almost every song is a classic with memorable melodies and vocal lines. Buy it!
