"Fierce riffage combined with some blazing single note action- Jack Kosto`s playing on the new Seven Spires record is really quite good. Also, when considering the fact that Jack `s still a young player with years of development ahead of him, it`s even more impressive. In time I can see Jack evolving into one monster of a metal player." - Joe Stump
