Exclusive Album Premiere: Spirits of the Dead — Rumours of a Presence
Today, RevolverMag.com presents the exclusive premiere of Rumours of a Presence, the new album from Norway’s Spirits of the Dead. The album was released today, June 25, through The End Records.
When Spirits of the Dead — ”Norway’s finest psychedelic-stoner-folk-band” — released their eponymous debut album in 2008, few could have been more surprised than the band in terms of the album’s strong reviews.
Crowned with a place in Classic Rock Magazine’s “Best Albums of the Year,” their second album, The Great God Pan, evoked retrospective and futuristic qualities and made it clear something was in the making. The band claimed they were “mixing the sound of the past with the sound of the future.”
Now it’s 2013, and Spirits of the Dead are about to raise the stakes. Rumours of a Presence digs deeper and goes to even more profound places than the band has ever been before. Recorded in remote districts of Norway, this grand record lingers on the big questions: life, death and the sea. Well, to be honest … death and the sea.
