Another strong album from Andromeda.

Polish progressive metal band Andromeda are one of those acts whose music is something I like to describe as not an easy listen. Intricate songs interlaced with odd time changes and clever lyrics, makes their work something you have to indulge in, music that you have take the time to really listen to before you get into it, before making your mind up about what they have done. New album 'The Immunity Zone' is just such an album, one that I didn't really understand on the first few plays through as I wasn't giving it my full attention at all times and missed out on quite a lot of what was going on.

So putting aside a few hours so as to give this album the time it deserved, I turned up the stereo and sat back. What came at me then was a classy slice of melodic progressive metal, that had many subtle elements interwoven within' the music. Yet even after giving it my full attention 'The Immunity Zone' still wasn't an easy listen. At first the melodies are buried within' the complex arrangements and they are slow to raise their heads above the firing line. It makes this album a hard one to enjoy but after continual plays I have grown to like it's many multiple, puzzling, complexities and when the melodies do show their heads then the song's take on a whole new life, which helps you enjoy the album the more you play the cd. Though this still won't be an album for everyone, even die hard prog heads may find this a hard one to get into, and give up on it, which would be a shame.

As songs like 'Censoring Truth’, 'Another Step', 'Shadow Of Lucent Moon' and the epic 'Veil Of Illumination' are all prime examples of superb complex prog metal that is well played, produced and put together, songs that probe your senses looking for those dark recesses of the mind so they can claw and finger their way inside, but as I said earlier it just won't be everyone's cup of tea. So to sum up, another strong album from Andromeda that needs time and patience before you can unlock it's many secrets, but when you do it can be a rewarding experience.
