NARNIA Announces New Singer

Swedish epic/melodic metallers NARNIA — who recently parted ways with singer Christian Liljegren — have announced the addition of vocalist Germán Pascual (see photo below) to the group's ranks. The band says, "Germán truly shares our vision and has shown us that he can handle old NARNIA songs with finesse, but most importantly that he fits perfectly with the material of our coming album. Germán grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but moved to Sweden in his teens. You may have seen and heard him with various bands and artists, such as MIND'S EYE and MENDEZ, to name a few."

NARNIA recently began recording its sixth studio album with producer Fredrik Nordström (Studio Fredman).

NARNIA last year posted a newly recorded song, "In His Majesty's Service" on their MySpace page. The track was originally written and recorded by the Swedish band JERUSALEM back in 1985. NARNIA's version of the song is featured on the group's 10th-anniversary "best of" album, "Decade of Confession", which was released this past summer via Massacre Records.

NARNIA's most recent collection of all-new material, "Enter the Gate", was released in April 2006 via Massacre. The CD, which was released in Japan on March 23, 2006 via Attic Arcade/Gencross, was described by the band as "the most well-sounding and well-performed NARNIA album to date." The follow-up to 2003's "The Great Fall" features backing vocals by Mats Levén (THERION, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, AT VANCE) and contains "the most melodic and catchy songs since 'Long Live the King' from the late '90s but in a brand new sound and approach," according to the band.
