SPRIT ADRIFT founder Nate Garrett shares his thoughts on Black Sabbath and "Vol. 4": "Black Sabbath is the reason that I am in a band", declares the multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. "They are my favorite band, and I love every era. I saw the video for 'Paranoid' when I was about 12 years old, and it was game over. 'Vol. 4' in particular contains quite a few of my favorite moments from the Sabbath catalogue. Many of my tried and true approaches to guitars were inspired by songs on 'Vol. 4'. The music is classic, but still fresh and groundbreaking all these years later.
With covers, it is crucial to capture every element that makes the original special, while allowing your own identity to shine through. I have heard Sabbath covers, even recently, where the band isn't even aware of the subtleties of the guitar riff, and they're straight up playing it wrong. So rule , I guess, would be to play the riff right. You don't want to neuter the song and lose the excitement. We stayed pretty true to the original because it is such an incredible song. However, a lot of our trademarks are there... extra guitar harmonies, crazy moog whooshes... all sorts of things we love to do. We are thrilled for this opportunity to pay our respects."
SPIRIT ADRIFT came into being as the heavy solo project of American composer and multi-instrumentalist Nate Garrett in in Phoenix, Arizona in 2015. The first EP "Behind - Beyond" and debut full-length "Chained to Oblivion" were both released in 2016. Immediately creating a buzz, the constant demand for live-shows led to the creation of a full band. Only a year later, their sophomore album "Curse of Conception" (2017) received high praise from fans and critics alike and scored a fantastic second place on the "Best of 2017" list by renowned US magazine Decibel. With the following release, "Divided by Darkness" (2019), SPIRIT ADRIFT cemented their position as one of the fastest rising US heavy acts and were even ranked by Kerrang! in the top ten American bands of the last decade. On October 16th 2020, SPIRIT ADRIFT will release their fourth album "Enlightened in Eternity".
