Kindred Spirits

who ... what ... where ... when

Beginning and degenerating

starting out ...
Originally formed on a cold and rainy November night in 1996, of the founding members Tommy and Peter are still present.
Since then Kindred Spirits have had the notion to entertain, have fun and reign the world...
So far we have had some fun at least ... sometimes ...

Moments of glory ...
The highlight of the released material this far is the album "No Room For Laughter" released in 2005 on M&A MusicArt.
Kindred Spirits have also appeared on a few select compilations.
Please check out the discography for full details.

Our music

The basic setup is one bass and two guitars, lead vocals and some backing vocals. Drums are part of the backtracks, as are the keyboards. Work is in progress to incorporate a real keyboard player though, not that we really had been looking but one has turned up which we believe would be a great addition to the band.


We have never had any ambition to make music which sounds like "band X" or "song Y", rather it is all about having fun, right?!?!
In reviews KS have been compared with different well-established and classic goth bands, but this is nothing we strive for. Inspiration, on the other hand, is something completely different and equally important and we have definitely been inspired and influenced by lots and lots of different bands.
