Audiovision was a Swedish "melodic metal band" which produced at least two albums, the second in 2010.[1]

History[edit]

Christian Liljegren, known for his work on Narnia and Divinefire started up Audiovision during 2003 as a solo project. The first album The Calling was released in late 2004 in Europe and Japan, produced by Lars Chriss (Lion’s Share, Road to Ruin). The guest list on The Calling featured Bruce Kulick (KISS, Grand Funk Railroad), Jeff Scott Soto (W.E.T., Talisman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Journey), Mic Michaeli (Europe), Tony Franklin (Blur Murder, Whitesnake), Mats Levén (Treat, At Vance, Krux, Yngwie Malmsteen) and Sampo Axelsson (Crawley, Glenn Hughes, Lion's Share, Road to Ruin)

In 2009, Christian formed a touring and recording band and ended Audiovision as a studio project. During 2009, the first shows were played in Sweden, Norway and Germany, and, in the summer, Audiovision started to record their second album Focus with producer Erik Mårtensson (W.E.T., Eclipse) overseeing the work.

In January 2010 Audiovision joined Stryper on the European leg of their 25th anniversary tour, and played shows in both Germany and Sweden.
