Theatrical metal storytellers Seven Spires have just hit the studio to begin recording their first full-length record! Drawing from all flavors across the spectrum of metal, their signature blend of melody, theatrics, limit-pushing and high caliber musicianship is tastefully dark and bittersweet; chaotic at times and comforting at others.

All members are Berklee College of Music students. Vocalist Adrienne found herself in Boston after winning a full academic scholarship sponsored by Lolapalooza music festival. She employs a combination of her strict operatic/classical training and self-taught extreme vocal techniques to “deliver every bit of recorded promise live”.

Guitarist Jack Kosto has been a student of neoclassical legend Joe Stump (Holy Hell, Ravenlord, Exorcism) at Berklee since he was accepted at the age of 15, and was originally inspired to learn the art of shred after seeing mentor Michael Angelo Batio (Nitro, Holland) play his hometown.

Bassist Peter de Reyna won a scholarship to attend Berklee beginning fall 2015. He has gigged professionally as a jazz and metal bassist on both electric and upright bass since the age of 16. Pete cites Iron Maiden as his primary influence and draws inspiration from Obscura, Candlemass, Necrophagist, Revocation and Marcus Miller.

Summer 2015 has proven to be a big one for our live drummer Chris Dovas. As a newly minted 17 year old, he won the 2015 Blue Man Group Boston Drum Off competition as well as attended Berklee's renowned Five-Week Performance Program. Chris has been playing drums since he was six and gigging since he was 11. He plays all styles including metal, rock, pop, funk, fusion, jazz, blues, and Latin. His influences include Tommy Aldridge, Matt Garstka, Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini, Dave Lombardo, and Vinnie Colaiuta.

Seven Spires stand for all that is deliciously over-the-top and emotionally moving, and aim to provide you with a decadent journey away from the drag of everyday life.
