Debut release from Phoenix, Arizona trio SPIRIT ADRIFT. A colossal 28 minute, 2 track limited edition release of gloriously epic doom metal / rock. An incredibly exciting new band, recommended for fans of Candlemass, Neurosis, While Heaven Wept, Baroness, Confessor with a touch of Slint. Something rather special is happening here.
Everyone you ever meet is entrenched in an internal battle. Life can be beautiful, but it is painful. SPIRIT ADRIFT channels this struggle sonically. Formed in May of 2015, the band wasted no time writing and recording their debut EP “Behind - Beyond” that same month. These songs are vital exercises in meditation and catharsis. They were born out of necessity, not desire. The foundations laid by the masters of the riff - Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Neurosis - are built upon, and the result is a psychedelic expanse of profound heaviness, captivating dynamics, and soaring melodies.
Make no mistake, SPIRIT ADRIFT play loud, crushing doom metal. There is, however, a tapestry of hope and wonder woven into the melancholia and despair. "Behind - Beyond" is more than just a collection of solid riffs, these are songs in every sense of the word. Enticing hooks ebb and flow, resulting in a cohesive and unforgettable experience
Spirit Adrift are intent upon carving their own path in the realm of heavy music. Special live performances and a full-length album loom on the horizon.
