Formed early 2015 in Rognan, Norway, Pixie Ninja is the result of two individuals with a huge appetite for Scandinavian progressive music. It is the brainchild of Jostein Haugen and Marius Leirånes. The duo played together since 2008, but began working on material for Pixie Ninja in earnest in 2015. They were joined by Änglagård, Necromonkey and White Willow alum Mattias Olsson on drums and the production side of things. The band rounds out its lineup with keyboardist Johan Hals Jørgensen.
