Sinister Visions from Poland – Eisenwald to release new By The Spirits record worldwide on August 2nd, 2019.

BY THE SPIRITS is 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).

Michal / By The Spirit concludes: ” ‘Visions’ features the full range of By The Spirits starting from the early beginning until nowadays and it never sounded better. Some of the songs are well known from my previous records, some got released only online, some of them were never released before at any platform. I wanted this to be, at the same time, a summary of the 3 years of By the Spirits so far, and also opening the new chapter of cooperation with Eisenwald and writing a new album.”

The first single “Secret Trees” is available through your device of choice. The official video premier is proudly presented by the new established zine for “Art:Culture:Nature” – “Der Eibenreiter” – please go to and check it out (German Only).
