Swedish melodic metallers ASTRAL DOORS have issued the following update:
“The work with the upcoming album continues. Even though we’re not even halfway through the process, we can already feel that this release will be something special. This time around we deal with religion, and all the shit it has brought to the world, once and for all and the working title of the album is ‘Jerusalem’. Our intention is that the album will be released in October in connection with a European tour. The first DVD from the band is also in the making. Some additional material will be filmed this summer and we’re talking about a winter release.”
ASTRAL DOORS‘ “Testament Of Rock – The Best Of Astral Doors” collection was released on November 19, 2010 via Metalville, the band and label pool launched by the Cologne, Germany-based company Flying Dolphin Entertainment Group UG. The compilation contains 14 classics picked by ASTRAL DOORS. The booklet features “a two-page history-lesson about ASTRAL DOORS; a summary of the first decade with ASTRAL DOORS” written by Erik Thompson of Sweden Rock Magazine.
Guitarist Martin Haglund left ASTRAL DOORS in April 2010 in order to focus on his family life. The band has opted to remain a five-piece, with founding member Joachim Nordlund handling all guitars himself.
Swedish melodic metallers ASTRAL DOORS have posted the song “Victory” from their recently released collection, “Testament Of Rock – The Best Of Astral Doors”, on their MySpace page.
The band states, “‘Victory’ was first made in Swedish to honor our favourite Swedish hockey team, Leksands I, but now, a year later, we wanna give the English version to the world. This version is more of a tribute to the game itself, not to a certain team. A rumor says that an unofficial homemade video to ‘Victory’ is in the making. If we like it, we’ll [release it] as well!”
