Chirality formed at Berklee College of Music in Boston in February 2011, with their current four-piece lineup solidified in October of the same year. Drawing from the band members’ varied influences from almost every spectrum and genre of music, Chirality has taken on the power and edginess of modern rock with an intense melodic focus.

After cutting their teeth in the United Kingdom and New England underground rock and metal scenes, the members of Seven Spires formed a group to play the most epic, theatrical metal possible. Drawing influence from a cultural medley of the storytelling masters Nightwish and Kamelot, the classical Fleshgod Apocalypse, the huge and dark Norwegian Dimmu Borgir, and some good old-fashioned L.A. metal, they create a blend that is dark, heavy, and surprisingly accessible.

Slumberjack will also perform.
