Anubis Gate comes from Denmark and even if it's the first time that I hear something about them, I can already tell you that it will not be the last one. With their new album "Andromeda Unchained", the combo releases an impressive album of Power Progressive Metal which will be, let's be honest, the real beginning of a promising career. Be sure that you'll not miss it!
The music of "Andromeda Unchained" is dark with a lot of different ambiances. All the songs on the album are really different and yes, this is not a linear album and that's a great thing for me. The music is a mix between Power Metal and Prog a la Andromeda (the Swedish combo), it's really efficient and even if it's clearly "prog" the songs are all really "intelligent" and never become some kind of musical demonstrations, "Andromeda Unchained" is easy of access without being weak and easy. But the album is also really varied, I mean that you will find mid-tempo songs, like fast ones or ballads like "Take Me Home" (the singer on this one is the bassist, and he is great!). It's a real pleasure to listen to this album and for sure it will be one new big surprises of the year 2007.
Without being a concept album, "Andromeda Unchained's" topics talk about human being condition and I have to say that the lyrics are really well-written. The production is perfect and I clearly think that the band should find a real success with this release. The musicians of Anubis Gate are great, their singer is perfect for their music and they all know how to write real Progressive songs.
"Andromeda Unchained" is a great surprise! This album is really complex without being hard to understand. All the ones who like good Progressive Metal but who don't like elitist music will love this album. "Andromeda Unchained" is full of hits and I think that Anubis Gate will be able now to conquer the European market and let's hope that they will confirm this positive review as soon as possible. Just classy…
