ASTRAL DOORS is back stronger than ever. For 2 years they have been working with their 8th album, “Black Eyed Children”, which once and for all will prove that they are the kings of classic heavy rock.
The music is heavier, the lyrics darker and most important: the songs are stronger than ever.
Since the debut “Of the Son and the Father” in 2003 the Astral Doors carried the spirit of the old heroes like Rainbow, Dio, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple into our time. In 2004 the band performed at Wacken Open Air and Sweden Rock Festival gaining an impressive number of new fans.
Successful tours with Grave Digger and Blind Guardian followed in the next years and let the Astral Doors star rising more and more. With “New Revelation”, released September 2007, the band climbed on the charts for the first time.
After the release of “New Revelation”, the band went out on their first big European tour as headliners. It was a blast ending with a triumphal return to Sweden Rock Festival for a smoking appearance.
After a line-up change and the signing with the German label “Metalville” in 2010 the Astral Doors came back stronger than ever. Three great new albums “Requiem Of Time”, “Jerusalem”, “Notes from The Shadows” plus the best of compilation “Testament Of Rock”, attended by awesome live performances all over Europe followed.
The title “Black Eyed Children” is based on a modern day ghost story. Or is it just a story?
