The Sleeping Shaman Reviews Spirits Of The Dead’s ‘Rumours Of A Presence’

The Sleeping Shaman reviews Spirits of the Dead's 'Rumours of a Presence'! "Spirits Of The Dead bring the doom in for the hard-edged Sabbathesque ‘Red Death’ with Vikse pushing his voice into full-blown howling rock god guise and Thorstensen giving it the complete Bill Ward jazzy shuffle throughout. Such overt Sabbism here is the exception rather than the rule, though, as spectral acoustic number ‘Seaweed’ follows in a completely different vein again with the entire track … [Read more...]

Spirits of the Dead ‘Rumours of a Presence’ Album Review at Paranoid Hitsophrenic

Spirits of the Dead 'Rumours of a Presence' Album Review "First off, this is Rock with a classic feel but an updated sound, similar perhaps to everything else but unlike anything you've heard.  Spirits of the Dead are breaking molds, seeming to have hit upon a winning formula that separates them from the pack of Scandanavian Retro Rockers.  It's amazing, the more of these throw-back kind of bands I discover from Northern Europe, the more I'm amazed that they not only don't all sound … [Read more...]

Spirits of the Dead ‘Rumours Of A Presence’ Album Review at Exclaim!

Spirits of the Dead 'Rumours of a Presence' Review "With their third record, Rumours of a Presence, Norway's classic proto-metal/stoner band, Spirits of the Dead, firmly anchor their aesthetic in the deep, fat niche of very early '70s hard rock. Combining songwriting elements of still-in-utero doom, psychedelia and progressive rock with a distinctly contemporary, sludgy stoner tone,Rumours of a Presence is a very retro-sounding record, in terms of how it's written with modern production … [Read more...]
