ANDROMEDA - Extension of the Wish - CD - Century Media Records

review by: Steppenvvolf

Andromeda's Extension of the Wish has been out for some time already but only now has found its way to our reviews. The band was introduced as playing progressive power metal, but actually I can't agree on this all too clear-cut definition of their style.

Songs such as "Star Shooter Supreme," being stylistically rather grungy in its character, will certainly disconcert anyone expecting a straight power metal album. To make matters worse, the keyboard interludes in that song won't find a big audience otherwise as well. The songs often miss a certain conciseness in rhythm and melody and stumble on and on from riff to riff.

The album indeed contains a bunch of nice riffs (especially the introductory one to the first song !) and songs ("Star Shooter Supreme," "Extension of the Wish"), but all in all, Andromeda has neither managed to give those riffs a voice in neither traditional nor in a new style.
