Holy space cow! This is a super album, and the addition of Jacob Hansen of Invocator fame as new vocalist was a great move. Hansen does not use vibrato techniques that often, but has a very clean voice which suits the music well, and which lends itself well to multiple layering of vocals. As with the previous album, the compositions on this sci-fi themes concept album, are complex and varied combining various types of heavy riffing with guitar melodies and catchy vocal melodies, and I think that this album, like the predecessor, can be described as Queensr˙che taken to the next level of heaviness.

There are no weak points at all on this album, but especially "Snowbound" with its use of additional percussive instrumentation and heavy riffing, "Waking Hours" with its strange King Diamond quality, "Beyond Redemption" with its power metal chorus and Pantera-like riffs, "This White Storm Through My Mind" with its epicness and quirky riffs, and "The Final Overture" with its guitar harmonies and guitar melodies. The Ballad "Take Me Home" is actually also very good with its soft vocal melodies.

"Andromeda Unchained" is in many ways a very underrated prog metal album which belongs up there with the classics by Dream Theater, Queensr˙che, Fates Warning, Mastodon and the other giants.

Time Signature | 5/5 |
