Andromeda - s/t 7"

Andromeda was a band from Tampa, Florida, and was formed in the mid '90s out of the ashes of Order Of Importance. They played sweet metalcore with some sludgy influences, grated vocals and some really cool guitar-work. They recorded a self-titled 7" in early 1997 which was released later that year on Toybox Records. These 3 songs would later be re-released together with 3 new songs as the 'Exalting The Spirits' MCD on Genet Records out of Belgium in 1998. Genet Records also released an Andromeda/Pray Silent split 7". Those are the only releases by Andromeda I'm aware of, and I know very little else about this band unfortunately. I still ripped these songs from the 7" tho, as the versions on the MCD are slightly different. Either way, I love the guitar-sound on this 7", and it's a solid 7" throughout. I don't think this band got as much attention or credit as they deserved. Great stuff. So check it out and enjoy.

NRTeric: I don't have the split 7" with Pray Silent, but I can upload the MCD. I'll add it to the list :)

Awesome! Thanks. BTW, are you still planning on upping the Cease stuff (besides the CD)?
