Seven Spires with new video "Cabaret of Dreams"


With its new theatrical piece “Solveig”, the female-fronted American band Seven Spires is about to pull off a major coup in the ever-growing symphonic metal scene. This debut album, which is to be released worldwide on August 4, 2017 via SAOL, indeed succeeds in establishing as of now the four-piece orchestra as an essential figure of tomorrow’s extreme soundscape.

The wide stylistic range embraced by Seven Spires’ art of musical storytelling relentlessly attests of the outstanding abilities of the band’s members. Going astray from melancholic power metal to melodic death metal with fierce forays into black metal, the quartet’s versatility never fails to make a deep impression on the listener. Their signature blend of melody, theatrics and high-caliber musicianship is tastefully bittersweet, chaotic at times and comforting at others.

“Solveig” tells the story of a lost soul and his journey through a Demon’s sunless neo-victorian underworld. Despite small glimmers of hope, it is a grim tale with a heavy focus on escapism, death and decadence. The love for Romantic composers and epic film scores the four young graduates/students of the prestigious Berklee College of Music have shows in their ambitious and emotionally moving dramatic vision.

Frontwoman Adrienne Cowan leads the band with an iron will and a golden voice. She employs a combination of her classical training and self-taught extreme vocal techniques to “deliver every bit of recorded promise live”. Therefore, the strict operatic singing that is often found in the symphonic corner of metal is more of a spice than a staple for Seven Spires.

The band ventured to Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany to put the finishing touches to “Solveig” in the company of the illustrious Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Kamelot, Rhapsody), who stated that Seven Spires is “one of the few new real personalities in metal”. As a matter of fact, a band that has been sharing the stage with big names such as Arch Enemy, Amaranthe and Apocalyptica – among many others – in its first three years of existence has to be taken seriously in the challenging environment of the current metal scene.

By conveying a ritualistic scenery, "The Cabaret of Dreams" video sets the mood for Seven Spires to work their magic on the viewer and take them to their own tormented dimension. With this hell of a song, the band delivers an ass-kicking piece of metal where the insane vocal acrobatics of Adrienne Cowan are fired up by a classy orchestral arrangement. "So sit back, relax" and "lose yourself to the twisted art". 



Hi media partner,

A new symphonic metal force is rising in the West. Coming from Boston, USA, the female-fronted battalion Seven Spires clearly has what it takes to rock the metal world. Indeed, no challenge seems big enough to hold back the four young virtuosos, so make sure to check the video for "The Cabaret of Dreams", the first single off of their debut album "Solveig"!

Cheers,
Marco
