Norwegian band Spirits of the Dead was formed in ealry 2007 by Ole Øvstedal (guitars) and Ragnar Vikse (vocals), with Geir Thorstensen (drums) and Deadly Nightshade (bass, keyboards) soon joining the band to complete the line-up. As soon as the band was settled they booked recording time in Crystal Cavern Studio to cut a demo tape, which they brought with them while performing live all over Europe. A direct result of that initial effort was to be picked for a gig at the NXNE in Toronto, Canada. Next up for this new act was to record an actual, official debut album. The final effort was issued locally in the fall of 2008 as Spirits of the Dead, and was released internationally in early 2009. This initial effort sports 7 compositions, and was mastered in New York by George Marino, known for his work with Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. With a foot planted in vibes of the sixties and seventies and the fjords and mountains back home on the west coast of Norway, the nearest comparison musically would be something like psychedelic-stoner-folk-rock. « hide
