Poltergeist

Poltergeist rode the wave of thrash metal in the early nineties, releasing three decent if not outstanding albums before breaking up in 1995. Founding guitarist V.O. Pulver and bassist Marek Felis went on to form the more groove-oriented band Gurd soon afterward, and that band has had a relatively long history. Finally, in 2013, Pulver reunited with original Poltergeist vocalist Andre Greider to put the band back on the map, releasing a new album in 2016.

Recent album: Feather Of Truth, released on July 3, 2020.
