Andem - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.


Contemporary Russian metal scene experiences real female-fronted bands shortage. Moscow-based ANDEM (abbreviation of "Angel and Demon") somehow saved this sad situation. Having started in late 2006 as a project of local level known by a score of people, it has developed into one of the brightest newcomers on the Russian melodic metal scene. Already with its first effort "Mayatnik Zhizni" ("Pendulum of Life" - 2008, Irond Ltd.) ANDEM conquered recognition of the both audience and press and got a very warm welcome. The true power of the band and "the word" were spread in gigs in various Russian towns and cities throughout 2008. It became obvious that the catchy melodies taken together with the charming female vocal have won thousands of hearts all over Russia. Less in a year after the release of the debut album ANDEM won the recognition of "best newcomer" due to the annual survey of the readers of the biggest Russian metal-music print magazine "DarkCity"! And now ANDEM are ready for the second strike with more melodic, catchy, and adjusted material. The second album is called "Doch' Lunnogo Sveta" ("Moonlight Daughter"). The diamond was diligently faceted by one-of-its-kind producer and sound-engineer Andy Horn who did splendid mixing and mastering work in his "The Red Room Studio", Germany. Amazing artwork was done by the most professional Russian designer A-Ra. Male vocal parts were performed by the highly popular Russian male singers Artyom Styrov and Ilya Alexandrov. The new album was released on April, 5th via top Russian metal-label Irond Ltd.
