With new theatrical piece "Solveig," the male-backed American metal 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 4th, 2017 via SAOL, indeed succeeds in establishing the four-piece orchestra as an essential figure of tomorrow’s extreme soundscape. Today, Seven Spires has teamed up with MetalUnderground.com for the world premiere of "The Paradox" music video.

You can pre-order "Solveig" now through iTunes at this location or via Amazon.com over here.

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.

Let yourself be enchanted by the dark call of “Solveig” and dive into Seven Spires’ netherworld! The track listing for the album is:

1. The Siren
2. Encounter
3. The Siren (Reprise)
4. The Cabaret of Dreams (see music video here)
5. Choices
6. Closure
7. 100 Days
8. Stay (song streaming here)
9. The Paradox
10. Serenity
11. Depths
12. Distant Lights
13. Burn
14. Ashes
15. Reflections

"The Paradox" is the second music video taken from "Solveig."

Guitarist Jack Kosto commented: "'The Paradox' is definitely one of the heavier songs on 'Solveig,' and it really showcases Adrienne’s ability to seamlessly blend super brutal extreme vocal techniques with her signature power metal belting. The instrumental parts are more technical here and very black metal-influenced, and the orchestra is just as massive and intense, making it a blast for us to perform live as well!"

Adrienne Cowan added: "At this point in the story, we learn some of the Demon’s rather unfortunate past, as well as some weary and profound bitterness harbored towards her prison, the decadent Underworld that she rules."
