The Lion Roars Again ! ‘Narnia’s’ “Long Live The King” Album To Be Re-released, First Live Shows Announced


narnia_thebandSwedish neo-classical metallers Narnia are back and stronger than ever. The band will celebrtate the 15th anniversary of the release of its “Long Live The King” album with bombastic live shows and a deluxe reissue of the album on CD and limited-edition vinyl.

Narnia 2014 is: Christian Liljegren – vocals, CJ Grimmark – guitars, Andreas “Habo” Johansson – drums, Martin Härenstam – keyboards and Andreas Passmark – bass.

When singer Christian Liljegren and guitar virtuoso CJ Grimmark formed Narnia in 1996, they knew little about the adventures which lay ahead: tours, six albums, live album/DVD, TV, radio and trips to Japan, The Faroe Islands, Mexico and, of course, Europe.

Narnia has toured with such bands as Dio, Stratovarius and Sonata Artica. They played several festivals, such as Sweden Rock Festival and Gates Of Metal, where thousands of fans enjoyed Narnia‘s energetic live show, which leaves no one unaffected.

When Narnia now re-unites, the band hopes to visit countries, which have not yet been given the Narnia treatment. The summer of 2014 will be memorable, when Narnia’s metal anthem ‘Long Live The King’ is resurrected!

Since the beginning of Narnia they have released six studio albums:  “Awakening” [1998], “Long Live the King” [1999], “Desert Land” [2001], “The Great Fall” [2003], “Enter the Gate” [2006], “Course of a Generation” [2009].

Narnia‘s most recent album, “Course Of A Generation”, came out in Europe on July 24, 2009 via Massacre Records. The CD marked the recording debut of lead singer Germán Pascual [Mind’s Eye, Mendez], who replaced Christian Liljegren. The cover artwork was created by Carlos Barbosa from Artiside, Brazil and the logo was redesigned by Rainer Mittelstädt of InLine Design in Germany.

“Course Of A Generation” was mixed by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman [In Flames, Soilwork, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir] in Gothenburg, Sweden.

May 24, Metallsvenskan festival in Örebro, Sweden
June 14, Goodmoodstock Festival in Pieksämäki, Finland
