BY THE SPIRITS are a folk project hailing from the mystic woods of the Lower Silesian region near the ancient Sleza mountain in Poland. Founded in 2016, the solo-artist Michal Krawczuk created a remarkable catalog and played over 40 shows throughout Europe. The essence of BY THE SPIRITS is to create folk-inspired music and lyrics that tell about the connections between man and nature, the spirituality within, love and death.
“Visions” is a compilation of old and new music that renders the scope of ‘By the Spirits’ aura thus far. Besides featuring the demo and EP material, the record holds three brand new songs, one cover version of COIL, and two alternate versions of previously published songs.
All material was carefully restored from the original sources and newly mixed by Martin van Valkenstijn (Mosaic / House of Inkantation), then mastered by Danijel Zambo (Walden, At Sea Compilations).
