ANDROMEDA was formed in 1999 in Malmö, Sweden, by guitarist Johan Reinholdz. Accompanied by keyboardist Martin Hedin, bassist Gert Dunn, and drummer Thomas Lejon, Reinholdz secured a record deal with WAR Music on the strength of a single demo. ANDROMEDA recorded their debut album, 2001's ‘Extension Of A Wish’, with singer Lawrence Mackrory. With permanent singer David Fremberg joining the ranks, the group issued their ambitious second full-length, ‘II = I’, in 2003, the year Fabian Gustavsson replaced Dunn in the bass guitar department. ANDROMEDA's third album, ‘Chimera’, came out in 2006, followed by ‘The Immunity Zone’ in 2008.
ANDROMEDA features: Johan Reinholdz – guitar, David Fremberg – vocals, Martin Hedin – keyboards, Linus Abrahamson – bass and Thomas Lejon – drums
