Golden Resurrection is a Christian neo-classical power metal band, formed in 2008 by Christian Liljegren and Tommy ReinXeed. Lilijgren also founded Narnia, now disbanded but definitely worth checking out as well. He is also vocalist for Divinefire and Audiovision. Tommy ReinXeed is a multi instrumentalist, founder of ReinXeed, an epic soundig neo-classic metal band. If you go listen to all of those bands, they sound very much alike, and for those who dig that sound this is a whacking lot of music to check out and like. These guys have some serious talent.
During 2009 Golden Resurrection wrote the songs that they recorded for their debut album ‘Glory To My King’. The material was a little like resurrection of early Narnia, rather powerful stuff yet very meldoic and synth heavy. Japan showed big interest in the band and several labels offered contracts. The debut album by Golden Resurrection was released in 2010 and recieved high praise from Burrn! Magazine Japan.
Their second album is more symphonic and melodious still, ‘Man With A Mission’ was released a year ago in October 2011. The band toured Sweden, Norway, Finland & Germany, but dropped the rest of the dates after two band members left. They went back to working on new material, for their third album ‘One Voice For The Kingdom’ that is set for release in January 2013.
