Narnia is back and stronger than ever with their latest release “Ghost Town.” Powerful melodic vocals, epic guitar solos, driving drums and thought-provoking, inspirational lyrics are delivered flawlessly on this latest release easily landing as one of the best albums the band has released.

For many readers, Narnia needs no introduction, however for the sake of newcomers I’ll give a quick run-down. Narnia began back in 1996 when singer Christian Liljegren(Divinefire, Golden Resurrection, The Waymaker) and guitarist CJ Grimmark(Saviour Machine, Sanctifica, Audiovision)wanted to do a melodic hard rock project. They pulled together like-minded musicians to round out the band and released their debut album “Awakening” in 1998. From 1998 through 2010 they released six studio albums, a live album and a compilation album. In 2010 they broke up only to reform in 2014. Since the reformed line-up they have released three studio albums: “Narnia” (2016), “From Darkness to Light” (2019) and “Ghost Town” (2023).

“Ghost Town” showcases how Narnia has matured over the decades and can execute brilliantly in their craft. It is very melodic with catchy choruses, grooving riffs, and ripping solos. There is a wide variety of influences present that make it easy to listen to over and over again. The lyrics are uplifting and great reminders of faith in this fallen world, which is a prevailing theme through the album.

On the ninth studio album, “Ghost Town”, Narnia has picked the icing on the cake from its vast catalog.
