It would appear that Norway, the band's home, is where the dead spirits of the rock gods go to be conjured up by young lads willing and able to channel them. - CMJ.com (US) While their influences lie in the past, their vision looks to the future, setting them apart from so many of their peers. - Glide Magazine (US) Behind a sophisticated silver-embossed cover hides another Scandinavian retro-trip to the golden age of hand-made guitar music.-Musikreviews (DE) Spirits of the Dead have come here with a very hot iron from the cold Norway swept around the corner!!! - Rocktimes (DE) I've listened over and over trying to find at least one negative point to say about this album but the truth we must face is that there isn't one bit negative on this whole album.. it all falls to pieces perfectly and SOTD proves with this killer album that they are scandinavian top! - Metal to Infinity (BE) Excellent! The best debut album I've heard in a long time. - FHM (N) Spirits of the Dead pounds away, in between their psychedelia and arena rock- references. - Haugesunds Avis (N) Grand psychedelic stoner rock - Groove (N) Spirits of the Dead shows that Norway has bands that got great skills and brilliance. Natt og Dag (N) We're bewitched since the first notes. The fiery SPIRITS OF THE DEAD's psychedelic rock sweep aside all that lay in it's passage -Progressive-Area (FR) SOTD is a MUST hear for all Classic Rock and stoner rock fans, as well as stoners - Crash and Burn (US) They're not just a cheap knockoff, though. They are the real deal. So far, their album, Spirits of the Dead, is an absolute must buy -Chronicles of a Soda (US) Listen to the muscular rhythm section on that boogie-woogie bass riff-not a single extra note out of place, nor a poorly placed cymbal hit to be found. - Itsatrap (US) Everything sounds and looks perfect in this release. Metal Perspective (GR) One of the coolest bands in that direction, is Spirits of the Dead - Amboss-Mag (DE) The band storms up with a great rumbling psychedelic album - Mestrock (SE) They pull out some seriously sexy early Zep-esque strokes and some succulently drilled smoked till just right hazy transcendentalist slow burn freak outs - Losing today (US) Spirits of the Dead have created with their impressive debut, the lively sound of 40 years ago with the musical and technical developments of recent years to unite - The Pit (DE) I'd say start off with "White Lady/Black Rave," "Fields of Gold," and "SOTD," and if you like what you hear, go indulge in the rest. I sure did. Recommended - Stonerrock.com (US) The ghosts play bold, loud, erotic, even forgotten, fast, taut and researching - Ragazzi (DE) The Debut album is an exhibition in psychedelic rock. - Joyzine (S) The sound of this astonishing debut album, is as it should be: warm, full-and juicy - Hooked on Music (DE) Spirits of the Dead make for a wild album that can be both light and agile as well as crushingly heavy. - Rock and Roll and Meandering Nonsense (US) Fifth tune T.I.T. sort of introduced some early Black Sabbath influences in brief moments, but on Spirits of the Dead longer segments are totally dominated by the almost evil-sounding, dark and twisted guitar riffs with a late 60's tinge to them...' Progressive Ears (US) In conclusion, this is a classy album which successfully manages to establish it's own identity and sound relatively timeless DPRP - Dutch Progressive Rock Page (NL)
