August 26, 2022 // CJ Grimmark (Narnia) releases Christmas-album

JONO proudly welcomes CJ Grimmark to the JONO-family!

The founder and guitarist of the Swedish metal band Narnia – CJ Grimmark – releases a Christmas-album together with a band of renowned musicians.

CJ Grimmark returns with his second solo album, 15 years after his self-titled solo debut from 2007. Together with the renowned musicians Anders Johansson (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, ex-Hammerfall, ex-Manowar, Tungsten, etc.), Anders Mossberg (Jerusalem), Andreas “Habo” Johansson (Narnia, Avatarium, Royal Hunt), and Anders Köllerfors (Anette Olzon, Allen/Olzon, Magnus Karlsson’s Free Fall, All For The King, etc.), Grimmark creates instrumental interpretations of carefully selected Christmas hymns.

  • Doing this is something I’ve had in mind for almost two decades, and it finally happened. explains Grimmark and continues:
  • This is a very mellow album in general, and not a metal production with shredding guitars, but the rock elements are present too. Thanks to the artistic freedom we all allowed ourselves to express there’s a great deal of different musical territories explored throughout the record.

’Christmas + Instrumentals & Hymns’ will be released on Jonatan Samuelsson‘s label JONO Music, with worldwide distribution via Sound Pollution Distribution November 4th.
