3 stars The third album from these Italian masters of zeuhl. A statement that surely will provoke a lot of sniggering. Well, the maters of zeuhl bit. And yes, there is not much zeuhl around here on this album.

It is claimed that Zed, their previous album was their only full blooded zeuhl album. That may be the case. On this album, the band is all over the place. From experimental metal via progressive metal to zeuhl, avant-garde aka Present to symph prog and RPI. The ten minutes long epic Kadman Neso is actually a very good RPI song. Dark RPI, that is. The rest of the album is also very dark. The whole sound on Andromeda feels like a dehumanized mankind. That is the feelings I get from this album. A dark place with no warmth and no feelings. It is very much like the two first albums by the Belgium band Present, this album.

The quality is very good throughout with Kadman Neso as the best song and a truly great song. The other songs are not of the same standard though. But this is a good album. This album is a free download from their website and a highly recommended download too. Runaway Totem is a band well worth checking out.

3.5 stars
