Astral Doors
Of the Son and the Father (Re-Release)
Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: 25 February, 2012
Playing time: 39:15

This is a re-release of Astral Doors debut album from 2003 and it hasn't any signs of aging at all. The vocalist and big front man in AD is Nils Patrik Johansson and he is the Scandinavian heir apparent of Ronnie James Dio. On this album with AD plays traditional heavy metal, which fans recon the true marks and influence from Sabbath, Rainbow, Purple and make fans with long big hair, roll and bang their heads.

These guys doesn't like slow ballads, here it's full throttle and with awesome lyrics, instrumental skill and with genuine joy and love to the music genre, it's easy to be a fan of Astral Doors.

This was one the strongest debut albums in 2003 and if you love Dio, Rainbow, U will surely like this. That's a promise.
