DREAMS OF AVALON is a melodic rock project, which was brought to life by the Swedish guitarist, songwriter and producer Joachim Nordlund.
Joachim started his professional career as a musician in 2003 with the foundation of the Swedish metal legend “Astral Doors”. He was also substantially involved in the releases of “Sky Of Rage” and the melodic rockers “SunStrike”.
The multi-instrumentalist has always been a big fan of the hard rock scene of the 80s, especially of the more mellow pace with lots of keyboards, strong melodies and hooks.
In a phase in which his main band “Astral Doors” took a creative break, Joachim Nordlund started to work on new songs of his own, which should capture exactly this spirit of the 80s.
All songs were written and arranged by Joachim Nordlund. The recordings for the album took place at Big Turn Studio in Nordlund’s home town Borlänge, Sweden.
The music has everything you can expect from Melodic Rock. Catchy melodies, big choirs, many Keyboards and melodic guitar work.
