As I listen to Nate Garrett’s first Spirit Adrift album, I am amazed at the fullness of his genius. To be able to pick up each of those instruments and play them is one thing, to produce such full, heavy sound another–to do both and write like that is almost inconceivable.
And as I listen to his second album I am starting to think he may currently be my favorite writer and guitarist. I can relate to him. I see the difference–I could never do what he does. But it is exactly how I would conceive it. Simplicity and genius go hand in hand. This is doom metal at its best.
