Format:Audio CD
"Astral Doors" is a Swedish heavy metal band occasionally borrowing power metal, melodic metal and neoclassical elements. The group is led by the super-talented singer Patrik Johansson (ex- "R.A. Space odyssey", "Lion's share") who is often and rightfully credited as the heir of Ronnie James Dio with a singing style and vocal capability that match perfectly the sound of the legendary American singer.

Performance wise you can expect thick rhythm guitars, classic riffs, aggressive drumming, meaningful guitar solos and substantial twin guitar harmonies. But once again the focal point is Johansson's unsurpassable vocal performance: We are not only standing on technique here but also confidence! It's impossible to describe how confident the guy sounds; his evident conviction in singing heavy metal causes other, more appraised, singers to sound insecure in comparison.

"Requiem...' features 15 mind blowing songs each offering a somewhat different metal experience to the listener as the band switches effortlessly between the musical subgenres mentioned previously.

Having played the album over 30 times, one may interpret the album title as the `demise of time' where Heavy metal never gets old or outdated. What the metallers have done here goes way beyond making a superior 15 track album, they are aiming at a timeless, possibly monumental, album which you will be playing again and again and again.Just take a look at the tracklist: "Testament of rock", "Power and the glory", "Call of the wild", "Rainbow warrior", "Anthem of the dark", Greenfield of life", "Fire and Flame" sound as classic as their titles suggest.

If you are a veteran METALHEAD like myself, do not buy this because there is nothing new, inspiring or groundbreaking on this CD or from this band in general. Just because the vocalist sounds like RJDIO doesn't mean you should buy it and if you want something reminiscient of the 80's, take out your vintage material from that era and crank it up.

Newbies to the METAL scene should also not buy this because you should be buying something vintage from the 80's to honor the memory and the moment of glory of that time period, not from a band that wants to imitate it. This disc is just very generic and boring. It made me cringe from the beginning to the end.
