“Solveig”: Seven Spires’ potent, debut full-length concept album – the journey of a lost soul through a neo-Victorian underworld ruled by an ancient demon. Despite small glimmers of hope, it is a grim tale with a heavy focus on escapism, death, and decadence. With distinct attention to melancholic power metal, melodic death metal, and black metal, these storytellers fuse sounds from across the spectrum of metal with their great love for Romantic composers and film scores. The album is set for release on Friday, but before it is, the band has given you a chance to hear the album in its entirety. Listen to it HERE.
Seven Spires carved their place in the metal world somewhere between Kamelot and Dimmu Borgir whilst all individually honing their craft at Berklee College of Music. “The human soul is a complex, multifaceted nebula of memories, intentions, and dreams,” says vocalist Adrienne Cowan, “And in order to fully express this in a story-driven album, I think it is so important to use every musical tool available to us. You can expect everything from regal black metal, bittersweet power metal during brighter moments in the story, and even a little doom metal in the darkest depths.”
Following the release of “Solveig”, Seven Spires plan to venture across North America through 2017. After witnessing firsthand the devotion of the European metal scene during a torrential downpour in the misty mountains of Slovenia, their headlining set at MetalDays ’17 proved that 2018 holds another voyage across the Atlantic for these metal storytellers.
