Dead Skeletons are a new band from Reykjavik, Iceland who I have been fully hooked on ever since watching their first video for Dead Mantra, a sinister, mind-bending jam that goes on for a good 10 minutes and still seems too brief. Their videos all feature twisted, tripped-out imagery, while their sound blends a hypnotic mix of Hawkwind, Spacemen 3, Wooden Shjips, Circle and Serena Maneesh into an addictive potion of its own.
