ASTRAL DOORS Evil Is ForeverLocomotive Music (2005)

A relatively new band and one that proudly wears its love of classic Rainbow and Dio on its sleeve. In fact vocalist Nils Patrik Johansson sounds uncannily like Ronnie Dio but without the full range and power of Mr Dio himself. It's all here right down to the Dungeons & Dragons song titles like ‘Evil Is Forever' and ‘Lionheart'. ‘Time To Rock' gets the old adrenaline flowing with its neat guitars but otherwise you really do struggle to find a stand out track or one that stays with you after you've finished playing the album.

Not a bad album, being well played and produced but the band try too hard to be an updated version of Dio and it lacks any real stand-out tracks. Certainly a band worth keeping an eye on for their second album methinks.
