about

While Spirit Adrift made many take notice with their debut album “Chained To Oblivion”, it is on “Curse Of Conception” their stellar second album, and first with new label 20 Buck Spin, that the band has taken a giant leap forward in songwriting prowess, production and confidence. From the Metallica / Priest like opening moments of ‘Earthbound’ to the epic closing of “Onward, Inward”, Spirit Adrift are aiming sky high with burning focus and peak vigor.

The aforementioned ‘Earthbound’ is a standard bearer for album-opening songcraft, leading into the colossal title track, a grungy and twisting radio-ready crawler. ‘To Fly On Broken Wings’ & ‘Graveside Invocation’ continue to show that any of the eight tracks on ‘Curse Of Conception’ could stand as featured singles. Throughout the duration brick heavy riff assembly, somber southern atmospherics and grand melodies entwine flawlessly into perfect metallic majesty, exemplified succinctly and totally in the instrumental ‘Wakien’ for example.

With a host of fantastic albums released by their contemporaries lately, Spirit Adrift has taken their craft to an ascendent 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 offer ‘Curse Of Conception’ as an embodiment of that perseverant vitality.

Track Name: Curse Of Conception
You shape reality so you can feel sane
Constructing fantasies so you won’t feel pain
At the mercy of your feeble brain
Ruled by forces from beyond this plane

World gone blind, psyche in decay
Aeons out of time, running out of days
Cursed at conception
Doomed by perception
Prey for redemption
Blessed by extinction

Primordial senses been neglected too long
The ancient nothingness is growing too strong
You blame each other as your mother’s laid to waste
She blames you all because you’re one and the same

An energy so pure
Corrupt at birth
It was never our fate
To be saved
Track Name: To Fly On Broken Wings
Pain that I taste
Sweeter than the solace of escape
Better to suffer
Than crucify and lie to one another

Fall endlessly
Lose everything
Or live relentlessly
And learn to fly on broken wings

Strong enough to lose
Longing just to breathe and bleed
Hard enough to choose
Desperate enough to believe

I was born with a fire
And yearn to fly higher

To fly on broken wings
Track Name: Starless Age (Enshrined)
A certain silence in the cold
A certain feeling that is old
More primal than the knowledge that we hold
Unweaving all we know

Suffocating in this emptiness
Enshrined beyond the stars
Our sorrow echoes, limitless
Forgotten what we are

There is a reckoning that comes
Every lifetime all at once
Every truth will be undone
We will loathe what we’ve become

Fear of knowing we were wrong
Too terrified to realize what we have done
Can’t accept that it’s too late
There’s nothing left to save

It crashes in a wave
This planet is a grave
