New Releases: August 19, 2022 – Spirit Adrift

Spirit Adrift - 20 Centuries Gone


Spirit Adrift is a band that was started by Nate Garrett back in 2015. I have been following them for some time, and have always marveled at how it was Nate playing the majority of the instruments on the albums. They are one of the bands that I point to when people ask me about new bands that are worth following.

This is album number five, their first since 2020’s Enlightened In Eternity.

The band is currently on 20 Buck Spin in the US and Century Media for the rest of the world.

Nate Garrett, who is the only permanent member of the band, started Spirit Adrift in 2015. 

20 Centuries Gone contains two new songs and six cover songs. Just to show how they can’t be pigeon-holed into one form of metal, they have chosen to cover a diverse bunch of songs. You’ll find covers of classic tracks that were originally written and recorded by Type O Negative, Pantera, Metallica, Thin Lizzy, ZZ Top, and Lynyrd Skynyrd

Let’s be honest, you probably know at least some of these tracks. But, for a kid getting into hard rock or metal, this album can be the gateway into some of the artists they’re covering. It reminds me in a way of what Metallica has done with covers over the years. You can definitely hear the original, but it also sounds like Spirit Adrift. This could also work in the other direction were fans of these bands decide to give Spirit Adrift a shot because they’ve covered one of their all-time favorites.

Give the album a spin if you think you fit either one of those categories or want to turn your kids onto a younger band, or if you’re a kid but none of your music convinces your folks. Spirit Adrift could help bridge the gap!

Here is Spirt Adrift with the track "Mass Formation Psychosis" off of their latest album 20 Centuries Gone.
