ASTRAL DOORS: New Album To Be Mixed By DANIEL BERGSTRAND

"Jerusalem", the new album from Swedish melodic metallers ASTRAL DOORS, will be mixed by Daniel Bergstrand, who has previously worked with BEHEMOTH, MESHUGGAH, DIMMU BORGIR, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and SOILWORK, among others.

ASTRAL DOORS previously stated that the upcoming CD 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. Our intention is that the album will be released in October in connection with a European tour."

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.
