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: Earthbound
Messages lost
They drown in roaring waves of life
It ends with us
Time paralyzed
We did not listen
Future but a memory
She is not risen
Dead celestial energy

We’re bound to the earth
Enslaved by life
We’re bound to the earth
Imprisoned in our minds

Sanctuary
From the unforgiving void?
Or are we buried?
Tomb upon an asteroid
We seep reprieve
Terror of existing
But we won’t leave
Until we stop resisting
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
Track Name: Graveside Invocation
Forged in hate, no escape
Fate of those that made me
Dismal verses disobeyed
Betrayal in eternity

It is the same, burning in my veins
Consumed by visions, premonitions or insane
Beyond pain, rage past explanation
Possessed by violence, graveside invocation

Senses stolen, torn from earth
Death, rebirth, ascension
Void of all that doesn’t hurt
Tearing through dimensions

We are the same
Fire inside our veins
Never will obey
Rise again
Hardened by the pain
Accept the blame
Consecrate your name
Track Name: Spectral Savior
Like grains of sand
These moments slipping through my hands
Genesis repeating
Time and space is fleeting

You spoke to me of death when we were dreaming
You spoke to me of god when we were wide awake
Though I felt each word and knew its meaning
I have no recollection of the answers that await

Who will save me from the curse of life you gave me?

Turn away
Yearning for your universal grace
Reunite
Burning at the center of all light

I’m older now than you were when it ended
Entangled in a dream, not nearly as forgiven
Committed to a world no longer vivid
Expected to remain, a ghost among the living

Who will save me from the curse of life you gave me?
Track Name: Onward, Inward
Time encompassing more than we know
Living and dying, fear of losing control
The inescapable fate of growing old
Illusions will never divide the current flow

Never moving on
Only moving in
Never being without
Only being within

Life returning to chaos again
Wisdom discovered, unmothered from where it began
The answers ingested, this catalyst created man
The power and purpose inside breaks the trance
