What do you get when you fuse dirty Industrial sounding Alternative Rock with the technical and melodic elements of Progressive Metal? Andromeda Theory! Forged in early 2013 out of El Paso, Texas, Andromeda Theory set out to take the music industry head-on.
Both El Paso natives, Drummer Floyd Hegedorn and Guitarist Tony Gonzalez, left their previous band, Abnik, and met up with Ohio based metal guitarist Cory Suydam to form Andromeda Theory. Almost Immediately Chris Castillo met up in the mix after a previous career with the band Alodex to set down the drums and follow his heart to persue a career as a frontman. Lastly to the band's lineup, was bassist and DJ Robert Martinez, who completed Andromeda Theory's sound with his tight, melodic and vigorous basslines.
Andromeda Theory has since quickly gained a foothold in El Paso, TX and plans to expand the project nationwide. Their debut album is set to be released in fall of 2013, and a fall 2013 or spring 2014 Tour is in the works!
To Date Andromeda Theory has shared the stage with a number of national touring bands such as FULL DEVIL JACKET, CALABRESE, SCREAMING FOR SILENCE, BEARD, VOICE OF DECEMBER, WAYLAND, AGHORI, RIKSHA, AECHOES, SEVEN DAYS LOST, BLACK HOLE GYPSY & most recently GENITORTURERS.
Andromeda Theory has had some large festival appearances in 2013 & 2014. In 2013 they were invited for an appearance at both THE UNDERGROUND MASSACRE and the HELLS BELLS both at THE NILE THEATER in Mesa, AZ. They were also at the 2014 HEART OF TEXAS ROCKFEST and RED GORILLA MUSIC FEST, which both take place during SXSW in Austin, TX! They have made local festival appearances in the 2013 WING FLING and performed in front of 1200+ in attendance.
In the upcoming year expect a new 4 track EP to be released that is currently being recorded at CONTRA STUDIOS in El Paso, and will be mastered by none other than NAGASAKI SOUND. Stay tuned and be ready for the new music and dates coming your way real soon!
