GHOST IRIS is a product of many Danish bands, who all have put their stamp, on the Danish and European metal scene.
From bands like AS WE FIGHT, SHAPED LIKE SWANS, ROAD TO MANILA, A SHELTERING SKY, comes an aggressive, atmospheric, epic and hard-hitting quartet, who will surely rock the foundation of the metal scene.
Ghost Iris saw the light of day, when past projects dwindled into obscurity.
Their goal was one and the same: They wanted to create music, that was unique for the Danish metal scene and completely its own.
