About Seven Spires
"One of the few new real personalities in metal" -- Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Kamelot, Epica, Rhapsody)
A canvas of the most human of natures. Theatrical metal set in the Underworld.
The band’s sophomore album, “Emerald Seas," is a highly emotional, dark, and theatrical epic and is out now via Frontiers Music Srl.
Kelley Simms (Outburn Magazine) - "On its 13 tracks, the band’s amalgamation of symphonic black metal and melodic rock/metal elements creates a perfect blend of melody and aggression.”
Eric Peterson (Brutal Planet Magazine) - “Seven Spires have created an auditory journey that will take you on the voyage of a lifetime. Emerald Seas is an album that should not be missed in 2020. It will be available on February 14th, 2020 via Frontier Records for the metal lover in your life.”
Samantha Buckman (Sonic Perspectives) - "This album is very much an experience that bears repeating for the sake of capturing the small details the writers have embedded throughout the epic adventure. The many layers and integrated style of arrangements lead to a “blink and you miss it” immersion that is irreplaceable. Seven Spires have truly captured the spirit of fantasy in their work, one which prospers from a background in varied musical education and a high degree of care given to the many sub-genres from which the album draws. 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.”
Dom Lawson (Metal Hammer UK) -- "Already hard at work on album number two, Seven Spires have the wind in their sails and it's not hard to imagine them becoming inordinately huge over the next 12 months." -
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...”
Rock Hard (Germany) review of Solveig 7.5/10 -- “Spires are one of the most untypical symphonic metal bands I’ve ever seen.”
PowerPlay Magazine (UK) review of Solveig 10/10 -- “Captivating from start to finish, Solveig captures every nuance that the subject matter deserves and will appeal to anyone who loves their metal symphonically and emotionally charged, with the only downside being Seven Spires have set the bar so high for themselves that even Robert Wadlow would struggle to reach his pint.”
RockGarage (Italy) -- "Surely the best symphonic metal expression from America we've ever heard."
Lady Obscure Music Magazine (US) review of Solveig 5/5 -- "There are many bands in today’s landscape who try to incorporate as many different metal genres into their music, most sounding like a cacophonous wall of noise, but Seven Spires pulls it off seamlessly which is all the more impressive considering their short history together. Mark my word; Seven Spires is a band that has great things in store for them. Solveig is in the running for my metal debut of the year."
Dead Rhetoric (US) -- “Solveig is an album made by musicians who want to change the game. Not confined by mere genre conventions and tropes, Seven Spires goes the distance to create a theatrical album that flows between beauty and extremity, and all points between. The sky is the limit as they continue onwards.
