About 5 years ago I had my first encounter with Swedish band NARNIA. I heard a few songs with them that did nothing to me, so I had mixed feelings when I received this album. But now I can say that I’m positively surprised.

This is actually very good. The music is very Melodic Metal and the memorable effect is high. NARNIA was formed in 1996 by Christian Rivel and Carl Johan Grimmark and has released four studio albums.

In 2004 they released “At short notice – Live in Germany" on DVD and finally the band decided to release the soundtrack of the DVD on CD.

This album is a journey through the first 4 albums… a “best of”, Live album. NARNIA delivers crushing guitar riffs that will make you stand up and take notice and the production are good. The music tracks were re-edited and re-mastered for the audio CD, but I have one little complain; the reaction by the audience could have been a little louder in the mix.

If you are a fan of NARNIA you can’t afford to miss this album.
