Blackened Toast An hypnotic album that will transfix and pummel you in equal measure, with thick, crunchy guitars, rich drum tones, and hypnotic, undulating riffs and song structures. Miss it at your own peril.

Ghigigi Pure is an immensely heavy album, but the band do more than just pummel you with distortion. The songs are smartly composed, with a skillful use of dynamics; the quieter moments make the heavy ones feel that much more powerful.

warren barton This album is colossal in size from the crashing riffs to the titanic growls, its unbelievable how good Adrift really are. The album Pure grooves through its black metal overtones which conjures up gigantic song structures that could easily sink a battleship. Favorite track: The Call.

about

Madrid metal band Adrift is one of the most respected bands in the Spanish underground scene. Doomed in mood, the sound of Adrift is at once shaded, triumphant, apocalyptic, atmospheric and progressive; "majestic gloom", if you will. Adrift will release its new LP, 'Pure', on May 31 via Temple of Torturous Records (Valborg, Ultar, Imperial Triumphant). The album is the long-awaited follow up to Adrift's 2012 release, 'Black Heart Bleeds Black', a record described as "if Baroness, Neurosis or Mastodon went into the darker side of metal". Pre-order 'Pure' at this location.

Formed in 1999, Adrift's early EP's and split releases quickly garnered the band a strong foothold across the European heavy music landscape. The support of Neurosis guitarist / vocalist Scott Kelly, who championed the group on his "Return to Zero" internet radio station, gave Adrift the rock solid endorsement it would need to help secure its first record deal. Adrift released its first album, ‘Monolito’, in 2008, which received glowing praise from Spanish music media. The band would subsequently share stages with like minded bands such as Cult of Luna, The Ocean, Wolves in the Throne Room and Torche, and proved that its high energy live show was the equal of its on-the-record sound and fury.

Wielding virtuoso musicianship and limitless creativity, Adrift's highly technical song structures are relentlessly forceful, displaying staggering chops. On the new LP, 'Pure', a morphing, liquid black melody runs through the veins of the group's herculean tracks; precision and patience roar as guitars crunch, wail, and burn. Swollen grooves grow and flow in circles and waves, allowing Adrift's songs to evolve into a perfect shapeshift between psych density and metal growl. Lyrically, the album dials down on "the corruption of the purest things in life", lending a weighty backbone to the record's sizable skeleton.
