Hmm, I don't know any Andorran bands. I want to check them out.

Well really worth checking out band. This album isn't as good as "Core", but still a very strong piece of work. This band has a bright future.

"Shin-Ken" is definitely the top Prog/Melodeath album for me this year

I agree. One of the defining metal albums of 2009; damn, some of those songs were catchy as fuck.
