Thrash Metal legends from Switzerland...
Formed in 1983, then still under the name CARRIONS and hailing from Switzerland, the band released two milestones of European thrash metal with Depression and Behind My Mask.
After recording their first demo in 1988 under the supervision of Schmier (DESTRUCTION) and playing a show with DESPAIR, they were immediately offered a contract by their singer Robert Kampf for his freshly founded label Century Media.
The technical thrash metal somewhere between the chairs brought POLTERGEIST many shows as support for WATCHTOWER, CORONER and many more. In 1993, the band's last album for the time being was released with the already path-defining title Nothing Lasts Forever. A Reunion and new albums followed (2016/2020). A fact that not everyone has on their radar: POLTERGEIST singer Andre Grieder also sang on the DESTRUCTION album Cracked Brain after Schmier left the band.
