Not only is Ghost Iris one of the leading progressive metalcore bands out of Denmark, but also serves as a perfect example for the modern days musical market. Having started as a DIY internet phenomenon in 2015 the band not only managed to build a strong team behind them, but also made their mark in the main metal community in a rather short space of time.
In 2016 the band achieved having the most streamed Danish metal album on Spotify at 1,6 million streams, and at the time of writing their general streams are in excess of 5 million.
Their two first albums “Anecdotes Of Science & Soul” & “Blind World” have both received grand praise by Metal Hammer, KERRANG! and It Djents for their playful, yet catchy approach to technical metal.
Technically enhanced, yet melodic guitars; fast-driven, yet groovy drums and an extraordinary wide vocal range from diverse angry growls to striking clean vocals are the band ́s signature. With the aim to provide the listener an experience that is as catchy and varied as it is hard-hitting, Ghost Iris manages to explore diverse moods and atmospheres.
Ghost Iris just recently released their third album titled “APPLE OF DISCORD” via Long Branch Records/SPV, one of the leading labels for progressive and innovative rock and metal music and the band ́s home base. The album will reflect the transformation the band has made since their founding only a few years ago. A transformation based on relentless motivation and optimism, personal and musical progress & growth and numerous touring experiences. The album will contain 10 songs of intensity, wrath and of course: the antidote.
With APPLE OF DISCORD Ghost Iris is aiming to step up their touring game even more and will be heading out on multiple national and international tours throughout 2019 and onwards.
GHOST IRIS has already been making an appearance and leaving a lasting impression with their energetic live performance at well-known festivals such as COPENHELL, EUROBLAST, UK TECH METAL FEST and DISSONANCE and on tour throughout EUROPE, UK, CHINA and JAPAN.
