Watch Spirit Adrift Face Horrors of War in New "Battle High" Video

Trad-metal anthem gets brutally "honest" visual

Trad-metal true believers Spirit Adrift just dropped their face-melting new LP, Enlightened in Eternity, which hails heavy hitters from Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne to Mastodon and the Sword with its galloping riffs and epic choruses. The album is available now via 20 Buck Spin and on Bandcamp, and to give it an extra boost, Spirit Adrift have teamed with Revolver to unleash the hard-hitting new music video for album standout "Battle High" — watch above.

"Despite the fact that we are spread across three different states, we made this video happen and we're glad we did," bandleader Nate Garrett tells us. "We are finally able to showcase the new U.S. lineup, featuring Preston Bryant on guitar and Sonny DeCarlo on bass. 'Battle High' is a song about the human cost of war. This is an anti-war song, and we made a video to reflect that. It's pretty cliche for metal bands to glorify war, but we wanted to do something more honest and realistic. The stance of this song is more in keeping with the guys who invented metal and wrote songs like 'Hand of Doom' and 'War Pigs.' As always, we're trying to honor that tradition and carry the torch into the future in our own way. They were living in a world with napalm and agent orange, we're living in a world with drone bombing, but the sentiment remains the same. Rest assured, the song and video are still metal as fuck. We hope you enjoy it."
