Swedish epic/melodic metallers NARNIA — who last year parted ways with singer Christian Liljegren and replaced him with Germán Pascual (MIND'S EYE, MENDEZ; pictured below) — have issued the following update:"We are happy to announce that our new album, which has the working title 'Course Of A Generation', will be released in Europe by Massacre Records on July 24. Details about other territories will follow later on. "We're very excited about this record, which is our sixth studio album. We promise that it will by far be the most intense record we have ever made. Count on very melodic, uptempo compositions driven by the most aggressive foundation in our history. "All drums, rhythm guitars, keyboards and some vocals have been recorded and the bass is being tracked as we speak! "We suggest that you contact your local concert promoters and request NARNIA for a show in the summer/fall/winter of 2009." The new CD will be mixed in May by Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, HELLFUELED, ARCH ENEMY, AT THE GATES) at Studio Fredman. NARNIA in 2007 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 via Massacre Records.
