Of the new album, GHOST IRIS comment:
"Apple Of Discord is a record we are incredibly proud of - mostly because it's our most passionate material to date. It reflects the experiences and represents the progress we have made over the last two years, both as a band and as individuals. One might even say that writing this album has been therapeutic for us. Bitterness, deceit, greed and frustration are feelings everyone has experienced one way or another in life, but it´s about how you channel the anger that comes along. And in our opinion, being able to use music to reflect and grow, is one of the most inspiring side effects when being artistically creative and passionate about what we believe in. We hope, you'll all enjoy Apple Of Discord just as much as we do."

Not only are GHOST IRIS the leading Danish progressive metalcore band, they serve as a perfect example of modern metal. Since forming as a DIY internet phenomenon in 2015, they have built a strong team behind them and made their mark in the main metal community in a very short space of time.
In 2016 the band were most streamed Danish metal album on Spotify at 1.6 million streams, and at the time of writing their general streams are in excess of 5 million.
Their first two albums Anecdotes Of Science and Soul & Blind World have both received grand praise by Metal Hammer, KERRANG! and It Djents/Everything Is Noise for their playful, yet catchy approach to technical metal. Technically enhanced, yet melodic guitars, fast-driven, yet groovy drums and an extraordinarily 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 manage to explore diverse moods and atmospheres.
The new album was mastered by Buster Odeholm (Humanity's Last Breath, Oceano, Enterprise Earth, Currents) at Impact Studios while the artwork was created by Dixon Jong (Intuitive Designs).
GHOST IRIS will step up their touring game on this cycle even further, heading out on multiple national and international tours throughout 2019 and onward, first in support of Soen in March.
