Biography

There are at least 3 artists known as Ashes to Ashes:

1) Ashes to Ashes was formed in 1992 by Michael Stenberg (guitar), Björn Luna (bass), Kristian Johansen (drums) and T. Foshaug AKA Strange Gentle (vocals). The first recordings of the band were 4 songs done in October the same year and together with 2 more tracks recorded in December ‘93 the band shorthly thereafter released their first demo; “Between the devil and the deep blue sea”. Two of the songs; “Castle in the air” and “Cat’s eye” (Sacrilege), was re-arranged and re-written, and later appeared on Shapes of Spirits.

In February ‘95 the band once again entered the studio to record their second demo; “Temples of ice”. The demo consisted of 3 tracks. Two of the tracks more or less appeared on Shapes of Spirits. The intro.; “Glory lies ahead” became the title track for Shapes of Spirits and the song; “The mourning”, who was originally a guitar based song, was later re-arranged for piano. The last track; “Despair”, had a really addictive riff which the band used at the end/fade-out of the title track for Cardinal VII. Both the aforementioned demos were made in 500 copies and sold out quite rapidly. Both demos received airplay in Norway and both were at some point the most requested at a local radio station in Oslo.


Later in ‘95 a new singer, Bjorn Torbo, was recruited and the band continued rehearsing and writing. One of those songs were; “Dying Room” which also appeared on Shapes of Spirits. The verses on the original version was carried by piano and bass.
