ASTRAL DOORS: 'Victory' Song Available For Streaming

Swedish melodic metallers ASTRAL DOORS have posted the song "Victory" from their recently released collection, "Testament Of Rock - The Best Of Astral Doors", on their MySpace page. The band states, "'Victory' was first made in Swedish to honor our favourite Swedish hockey team, Leksands I, but now, a year later, we wanna give the English version to the world. This version is more of a tribute to the game itself, not to a certain team. A rumor says that an unofficial homemade video to 'Victory' is in the making. If we like it, we'll [release it] as well!"

"Testament Of Rock - The Best Of Astral Doors" was released on November 19 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.
