Staff review by

Visions is the 2nd full-length release from the Finnish doomsters Astral Sleep.

The album not only features some great artwork, but some great tunes as well. While there are just four tracks on the release in typical doom fashion you're getting pretty close to an hour's worth of music in those songs.

And while the music starts straightforward enough with slow, drawn out doomy riffs, mournful melodic leads and deathgrowl vocals, the band aren't afraid to vary it up. And by vary it up, I don't mean cut back and forth between slow doom and ambient passages, but a considerably wider degree of variance than I typically expect to find in the genre.
