Dead Skeletons are a psychedelic rock trio from Reykjavík, Iceland, formed in 2008 by Jón Sæmundur Auðarson (aka Nonni Dead), Henrik Björnsson and Ryan Carlson Van Kriedt.

History[edit]

Dead Skeletons formed in 2008 when frontman Auðarson held a show at the Reykjavik Art Museum. He needed music to accompany the installation, so Auðarson, Björnsson (also of Singapore Sling) and Van Kriedt (ex-Sunsplit, also of Asteroid #4) recorded the song "Dead Mantra", which became an underground hit and landed them a record deal with A Records,[1] who released it as a single on 26 November 2010. Their debut album, Dead Magick, was released on 11 November 2011, followed by three 2012 releases: the "Om Mani Peme Hung" single in January (by Too Pure), the (Orð) EP on 23 September (by Sound of Cobra) and a two-track single titled Buddha-Christ on 12 December (by Fuzz Club Records).[2] Another two-track single, "Dead Comet", was released in November 2013 by Dead Monk Records.
