Spirit Adrift Behind - Beyond EP on Limited Edition LP
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 pair of 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.
"‘Behind-Beyond' mixes prog, doom and the creepiest songs in the hymnal, and brings it all to a rolling boil of melancholy and atmosphere. The result is a psychic journey well worth the taking." – Revolver
