Graced once again by the mixing/mastering genius of Sascha Paeth and Miro Rodenberg, Seven Spires’ new album is “SOLVEIG”, a theatrical metal concept album in two acts. It is 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. With distinct attention to melancholic power metal, melodic death, and black metal, Seven Spires fuse sounds from across the spectrum of metal with their great love for Romantic composers, and the atmospheric and storytelling capabilities of film scores.

"The Truth of the Lion" Nominated for Two IPMA Awards 


I'm thrilled that the Mike Kerr Group's "The Truth of the LIon" has been nominated for two International Portuguese Music Awards: Best Rock Performance and Song of the Year. I'm so proud to be a part of this!

I sang with AMARANTHE (OMG) 


1:28 Pinch me, did I really sing with Amaranthe the other night at the Stafford Palace Theater in CT? Thank you Amaranthe for making me dizzy with happiness, and thank you Jake Sheik Estabrook and Black Ray Photography for this fantastic footage.

Cover: "Forever" by Kamelot (plus I have a new YouTube Channel!) 


I STARTED A NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

As anyone with an inkling of creativity in their system knows, an artist's influences, tastes and abilities change and develop over time, just as one's personality matures with each new experience. I've been making YouTube videos since I was 15 and have decided that it's finally time to make a new, official channel, for all my things metal and dishevelled composery.

This has been a long time coming (Jack and I filmed this in January! Haha), but here's "Forever" by KAMELOT. I had a good time stretching my power metal chops, and I hope you'll enjoy it too smile emoticon
