ADRIFT, the hard rock side project of CANNIBAL CORPSE guitarist Jack Owen, have completed work on their debut EP at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida (GOD FORBID, MONSTROSITY, TRIVIUM) with CAPHARNAUM leader Jason Suecof at the board. Co-produced by Suecof and ADRIFT, the EP "showcases ADRIFT's unique sound and approach to accessible songwriting," according to a posting on the band's web site. Mastering took place at world-renowned Morrisound Studios with Jim Morris finalizing the signature ADRIFT sound. Three songs from the EP — "Empty Dreams", "Broken Mirror" and "Fear of Day" — are currently available for streaming or for download via www.adrift.cc.
ADRIFT, whose lineup is completed by ex-EPITAPH/RESURRECTION drummer Kevin Astl, Mark Elm on vocals, Analia Pizzaro on guitar, and Michael Capuano on bass guitar, will be filming a video for the song "Empty Dreams" in the next couple of weeks and will be posting it to their web site by April 1.
Commented Astl, "I think the ADRIFT songs are going to catch a lot of people by surprise. If you're looking for a rehash of 'Hammer Smashed Face', you won't find it. If, however, you are looking for well-written, aggressive songs you can identify with, along with a heavy, grooving sound unlike any mainstream band, ADRIFT may offer you what you are looking for — a pleasurably introspective listening experience. Hell, it just rocks, and we have a blast playing it! Check it out and make your own opinion."
