5 stars Excellent disc of the Swedish band ANDROMEDA, al to perish is another very good band that it comes from Scandinavian, that zone where this concentrating very good bands, is the new cluster of bands that are bringing forth talents worthy to turn around to see handle leaves from the earth, where bands like PAIN OF SALVATION and EVERGRAY, are emphasizing inside del world del progressive metal, without doubt some is as in many other bands the well-known influence of DREAM THEATER this does not mean that it is not a great band, all the opposite, is of the bands which they are in fight to look for his own style or better said this managing to be different and innovating, its first album "Extension Of The Wish" of the 2001, this considered by many as the most puristic work of this band but in fact is metalero and this is more progressive, without a doubt these Swedish with this work obtain a good combination, even between song and song uses the negative time or dead, this is part of the producer and leader Martin HEDIN, even has sounds that TANGERINE DREAM remember to me, clear that these being leaves from the tie of the songs does not last much but is without a doubt a sample of originality of the band, is possible to indicate that DREAM THEATER in "Octavarium" uses this resource also, without a doubt some this band develops with great virtuosity that apparently is already a requirement to exert this type of style, this also must extend to all the members of the band, something that much enjoys and that him lack to many bands of this nature is instrumental passages, if it has them but they would have of being more extensive, I have always said it if something gains the progressive metal as far as distinction is the instrumentation, clear when this this too much focused in the metal and is not let to him combine with the progressive essence. In conclusion this it is a disc that it looks for to be something more than the preservative disc of progressive, is obtained to a great extent to the small variations that Martin HEDIN does, who without a doubt does not provide a good short while of good music.
