A new confirmation for this year’s Rockstadt Extreme Fest has been announced by the organizers.
Ghost Iris is one of the leading names of Denmark’s progressive metalcore scene, 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. Just one year after its inception, Ghost Iris achieved the performance of having the most popular metal album on Spotify, with over 1.6 million streams, while the group’s total stream exceeds 5 million.
The band’s first two Ghost Iris albums, “Anecdotes Of Science & Soul” and “Blind World” have been critically acclaimed by magazines such as “Metal Hammer”, “KERRANG!” and “It Djents”.
Quote from the band’s official Facebook page:
“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.”
The third album, “Apple Of Discord”, released this year through Long Branch Records/SPV, highlights the transformations the band has went through since its founding, “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.”
Jesper – vocals
Nicklas – guitar, bass guitar
Sebastian – drums
Daniel – guitar
Ghost Iris has already made a lasting impression at festivals such as Copenhell, Euroblast, UK Tech Metal Fest or Dissonance and at tours across Europe, Great Britain, China or Japan.
