Avandra – Skylighting Review

“After two full years, almost to the day, I finally received my first return customer. Puerto Rican prog collective Avandra come back to me with their third full-length record Skylighting.

Therefore, the only consideration left is whether or not they put out something worth my time.” Sky or sell?

“There are some excellent metal records out there—Voyager‘s Ghost Mile comes to mind, along with Wishfield‘s self-titled release from earlier this month—that I find quite relaxing.

Which brings us to the band of the day: Avandra. ” Prog for pondering.
