Wow. Just wow. What a way to end a long week. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of witnessing a show on the inside stage of Hotel Vegas in Austin, let me explain. It is small. It is dark. It is cramped. It’s a space to see music up close and personal. Spirit Adrift, in my opinion, is one of these young metal bands that is right on the cusp of blowing up good. And to see them in the grimy and no-frills environment of Hotel Vegas on their way up through the trenches was a cool treat to see. I really believe these guys have the chops and the stage presence/charisma to propel this band into the mainstream metal public’s consciousness. It won’t be long before these guys are playing much larger venues. I implore you to seek these guys out when they play your town and especially go pick up their latest, Divided By Darkness.
