Spirit Adrift is celebrating the 30th birthday of Pantera's A Vulgar Display Of Power with a cover of the album's closer "Hollow." Check it out below alongside artwork by Brian Mercer (Inter Arma, Black Tusk, etc.), as well as an interview with Spirit Adrift mastermind Nate Garrett on what A Vulgar Display Of Power means to him 30 years later.
"Vulgar Display of Power was a massive influence on my understanding of powerful songwriting, memorable arrangements, riffing, drumming, singing, and heavy metal in general," said Garrett. "I studied the entire album from an early age, and the standout track to me has always been 'Hollow.' It is dynamic, emotional, unpredictable, and perfectly suited for the style of Spirit Adrift.
"Covering such a great song by such a legendary band is not something I took lightly. I channeled every ounce of obsession and attention to detail into our version, making sure that we honored the original song while introducing some of our trademark elements to make it our own. Pantera are one of those bands that taught me how to play music, and I hope Spirit Adrift's version of 'Hollow' does justice to their legacy."
