Arizona’s psychedelic desert doom troupe SPIRIT ADRIFT – featuring members of Gatecreeper, Goya, and others – offers a crushing new sample of the band’s impending second LP, Curse Of Conception, which is nearing October release through 20 Buck Spin
SPIRIT ADRIFT has taken their craft to an ascendant new level on Curse Of Conception earning their rightful place among the top tier of modern metal bands clawing their way above and beyond the underground scene. Now more than at any time metal has become the lifeblood of rock music and SPIRIT ADRIFT offers Curse Of Conception as an embodiment of that perseverant vitality.
Decibel Magazine has premiered the mind-altering metal thunder of new single, “Starless Age (Enshrined),” alongside an interview with SPIRIT ADRIFT, noting, “you’ll be treated to the breakthrough doom metal album of 2017. That actually sells the record a little short, as various shades of rock, traditional metal and even an early Metallica vibe color Curse Of Conception.”

While SPIRIT ADRIFT caused many listeners to take notice with their debut album Chained To Oblivion, it is on Curse Of Conception that the band has taken a giant leap forward in songwriting prowess, production and confidence. From Metallica/’Priest-like moments to epic crescendos, radio-ready crawlers to sky-shaking thunder, SPIRIT ADRIFT is aiming sky high with burning focus and peak vigor. Throughout the duration, brick-heavy riff assembly, somber southern atmospherics, and grand melodies entwine flawlessly into perfect metallic majesty.
