06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most

06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones

Inner Wound Recordings announced that the label will re-release the classic Andromeda progressive metal albums II = I and Chimera. The release dates are set for January 21st for North America and January 24th for Europe. Both albums are remastered and contain liner notes written by Andromeda guitarist Johan Reinholdz.
Swedish metallers Andromeda have announced the release date of their long awaited fourth studio album "The Immunity Zone". The album will be out in the USA on the 16th of September. More release dates for the rest of the world are said to be posted soon. More information about the album is also expected to follow.
Swedish Progressive Metallers Andromeda has revealed details of their live DVD entitled "Playing Off The Board".
The main feature was recorded on 31st October 2006 in Wyspianski Theater in Katowice (Poland) when Andromeda supported Pendragon at a 21st Anniversary of "The Jewel" concert. The band (line-up: David Fremberg - vocals, Johan Reinholdz - guitar, Martin Hedin - keyboards, Thomas Lejon - drums and Fabian Gustavsson - bass) concentrated mostly on their latest "Chimera" album but the set-list also includes older tracks from "Extension Of The Wish" and "II=I" albums. Get ready for a strong dose of progressive metal! The Swedish quintet offers powerful and sublime sound compositions that are both structurally intricate and overflowing with a vast spectrum of emotions.
As we all espected Andromeda has started recording their third album. This happened in last few weeks. It's still unknown how long will this take... I just can't wait to hear what band has to offer with their new work... Can you? I think that this waiting will pay off when new album is released!
