Hundreds of album covers into the year and you'll find few, if any, as glorious as the Burkean work fronting Enlightened In Eternity, the newly announced record by the mighty SPIRIT ADRIFT. Arriving on October 16th via 20 Buck Spin (North America) and Century Media (rest of the world), Enlightened In Eternity finds Nate Garrett and Marcus Bryant composing a treacherous heavy metal excursion of towering capabilities. Lead single Harmony Of The Spheres is a prime example of the electrifying riffs that await, harkening one back to the golden days of the genre.

Frontman Nate Garrett comments on the record:

“I wrote the songs on Enlightened In Eternity before my life fell apart, and from the beginning I set out to make this our most uplifting and empowering album. I’m glad I did that, because ironically enough, these songs helped me keep going when things got bad. I’m proud of the work Marcus put in, I’m proud of these songs, and I’m proud of how we navigated the entire experience. This is the most challenging record I’ve ever made, and it’s my favorite record I’ve ever made. I hope it helps others the way it helped me."

Garrett adds:

“Making a Spirit Adrift album is always intense, but Chained to Oblivion and Curse of Conception dealt with issues from my past, and Divided by Darkness dealt with external issues from more of a philosophical perspective, so there was a bit of a protective layer of detachment between the material and myself. On the other hand, when Marcus and I recorded Enlightened In Eternity, we were in the middle of a lot of intense emotional upheaval — hour to hour, minute to minute. Some days it took everything I had to keep working, particularly when it was time to record vocals. From a technical standpoint, things couldn’t have gone smoother. But from an emotional standpoint, it was brutal. The silver lining is that our hearts and souls are embedded into this record with a raw immediacy and urgency that’s unmatched by our previous material.”
