Seven Spires: Emerald Seas-2020.

Seven Spires is an American Symphonic Metal band, formed in 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. They have released 1 EP and 2 albums, and are currently signed with the Italian-based label Frontier Records.


Seven Spires was created in 2013 by Jack Kosto and Adrienne Cowan, both graduates from Berklee. After releasing their first EP ‘The Cabaret Of Dreams’ in 2014, they recruited two other Berklee students among their ranks, Peter de Reyna and Chris Dovas, solidifying their lineup which hasn’t changed as of today.

After doing a bit of touring the following years, they launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to properly release their debut album. The operation was a success, and Solveig was unleashed to the world on August 4th 2017.

Conceptually imagined as the prequel to the Siren character of Solveig, Emerald Seas takes the Spires formula to another level. A sound even more diversified, featuring incredible drumming from Chris Dovas, as well as improved basslines and guitar work, although they were already impressive in the first place. You’ll hear some more bass noodling on this one, on songs such as Succumb or Every Crest, where Peter de Reyna lets it all go, while Jack Kosto lets his heart speak through guitar solos as beautiful as on Solveig. The vocals need no mention, as Adrienne Cowan keeps on solidifying her status as one of the vocalists in the Metal world as of now.

The band is going on tour all across the US with Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum in March and April, and once again with Amaranthe and Battle Beast from August to September.

They’re also already working on a third album.
