March 26, 2021 Melodic Passion Records proudly released Christian Liljegren’s album Melodic Passion and feedback has been tremendous from all parts of the world! Christian Liljegren is one of the most productive hard-rock/metal artists from Sweden and on the rock scene today with nearly 40 different albums under his belt, since he the started his career in 1986. Christian is known for his passion in his singing on albums as well on stage live performing for crowds all around the world.

In Christian’s long music career he has been front man for many bands such as Narnia, The Waymaker, Audiovision, Divinefire, Golden Resurrection, Wisdom Call, Flagship, Modest Attraction, and Borderline to name a few. As Christian describes it: – I am 50 years, and I have been listening and composing a lot of songs. So happy for the cooperation writing songs between me and guitarist Stephen Carlson. We clicked and light the fire! I am huge fan of classic hardrock like Rainbow, The Sweet, Deep Purple, Dio, Uriah Heep, Whitesnake, Europe and Stryper and I grew up to these bands and artists and this is my way to pay my tribute to my musical heroes. In collaboration with the amazing musicians Per Schelander (House of Shakira, Astrakhan) – bass, Andreas ”Habo” Johansson (Narnia) – drums, Olov Andersson (Audiovision, Veni Domine) – keyboards and co-producer, and the amazing mixing producer and engineer Viktor Stenqvist (Narnia, Avatarium, Stoneface), we have created this powerful in your face hardrock. The final touch in mastering was handled by Narnia’s CJ Grimmark, and on top of I have done five music videos for this album showing the passion through music with a heavenly touch.

The intention with this album was to go back to Christian’s musical roots, where he started to listen to music late in the 1970’s. You can hear Christian’s biggest music influences from bands such as Rainbow, The Sweet, Uriah Heep, Queen, Stryper and Europe, as well as favorite singers like Ronnie James Dio (R.I.P), Brian Connolly (R.I.P), David Byron (R.I.P), Freddie Mercury (R.I.P), John Lawton, John Miles, Michael Sweet, and Joey Tempest.

This is also Christian’s debut as music composer, since all music on this album is composed by Christian and Stephen Carlson (Brotthogg, The Rise, Tales, Gil Edwards), an amazing guitarist from Sweden who now lives in Norway. Christian has written all lyrics, vocal melodies and arrangements, and co-produced the album with his good friends Viktor Stenqvist (Narnia’s sound engineer), and Olov Andersson (Audiovision, Veni Domine and keyboard player on this album).

The Melodic Passion album was released on CD and LP (black and limited purple edition) and on all major digital platforms by Melodic Passion Records and distributed by Sound Pollution Distribution on March 26, 2021.
