Psychedelic desert doom/metal outfit SPIRIT ADRIFT has issued the new single “To Fly On Broken Wings,” through an exclusive premiere hosted by Revolver Magazine, as their Curse Of Conception LP nears release through 20 Buck Spin.
SPIRIT ADRIFT – featuring members of Gatecreeper, Goya, and others – 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.
Issues vocalist/guitarist Nathan Garrett, “There’s a southern vibe ingrained throughout the new album, and it’s especially present on this song. ‘To Fly On Broken Wings’ is a tribute to all the folks who taught me some of the most valuable lessons I ever learned, while I was cutting my teeth in Arkansas. A lot of bands from the south were profoundly inspirational to me, and on this song, I wanted to pay respect to Deadbird in particular, hence the title. Musically, I approached this track with two things in mind: make it really heavy, and use a 3/4 time signature. Lyrically, the song is about refusing to give up.”
Revolver calls the new track, “a gritty, molten-hot slab of hard rock inspired by Garrett’s southern roots…”

While Arizona’s 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.
