About Seven Spires
Seven Spires are an American metal quartet from Boston, MA.
Since the band’s inception in 2013 at Berklee College of Music, these four best friends have forged their home in the darker corners of the melodic metal world with strikingly emotional filigree and relentless technical prowess. Known as much for their melancholic concept albums as their penchant for pushing genre limits, they draw influence from across the spectrum of metal and beyond, reaching ravenously into Jazz, Late Romantic era Orchestral Music, Cinematic soundscapes, and more.
Hailed as “One of the few, new, real personalities in metal” by Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Kamelot, Epica, Masters of Ceremony) and "a uniquely exuberant and inventive new force in the increasingly interchangeable worlds of power, symphonic and traditional metal" by Dom Lawson (blabbermouth.com), Seven Spires are about to complete the third installment of their concept album trilogy.
Their debut full-length, “Solveig”, saw performances at festivals including MetalDays ’17, ProgPower ’17, 70,000 Tons of Metal ’18, and others. After signing a worldwide deal with Frontiers Music srl, they released their second full-length, “Emerald Seas” on Valentine’s Day 2020, and were scheduled to tour North America with Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum, and later with Amaranthe and Battle Beast. But, after just one show with Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum, the tour was cut short due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Heartbroken but as determined as ever, Seven Spires returned home, spending the next six months drafting what later became their third full-length album.
Dom Lawson (Blabbermouth) - "...It's also beyond exciting to hear a new band operating in this part of the metal world and doing something authentically new and utterly irresistible with such beloved ingredients."
Eric Peterson (Brutal Planet Magazine) - “Seven Spires have created an auditory journey that will take you on the voyage of a lifetime.”
Samantha Buckman (Sonic Perspectives) - "Without a doubt, the cinematic “Emerald Seas” capture the human spirit in its most vulnerable state, providing a true portrait of a yearning heart and self-discovery.”
Metal Hammer (Germany) - “Tougher tracks such as ‘Paradox’ or ‘Burn’ compliment the symphonic metal elements, so you sometimes feel like you already have the new Dimmu Borgir...”
