A Tribute to Black Sabbath ft. Bevar Sea at BFlat, Bangalore

Share

Bangalore’s heavy rock mainstays Bevar Sea have been known for their two well received studio albums and hard hitting live concerts over the past few years. It has also become some sort of a tradition for the band to take a break from their usual set to tipping their hats to the masters of all things heavy, and the band they get compared to the most, Black Sabbath. Expect 90 minutes of pure riff worship, and if you’ve seen them do this last year, expect new songs added to the set too.

Bevar Sea
Bangalore-based stoner-doom metal quintet Bevar Sea started out in 2007-8 and became a serious performing and recording act bylate 2010. They have since gathered an unprecedented cult following in the country, based on their powerful live performances and recorded output, as well as in the doom and heavy metal circles abroad.

The band’s self-titled debut album was released in October 2012 to great response from both the local and international audiences and favourable reviews from critics everywhere. Recorded by the band members themselves at The Doom Cave, and mixed and mastered by Billy Anderson (Melvins, Neurosis, Sleep, High on Fire, Agalloch etc), the album featured artwork by lead guitarist and artist Rahul Chacko. It showcased a fairly young band playing doom with generous influence from 70’s hard rock, with all the hooks, melodies and blues-favoured riffs you’d expect from that combo. The positive response worldwide to the album went a long way to putting them on the map, even as far as earning them a slot at the prestigious Maryland Deathfest in the USA. Songs from the album became live staples since the release and were also featured in various compilations worldwide.

Two years after the release of the first album, with more experience and skill under their belt, the band wrapped up writing new songs for the second album titled ‘Invoke the Bizarre’. In November 2014, after a 10-day whirlwind session at Adarsh Recording Studio in their hometown, the band was done with recording. The album was then mixed and mastered by Matt Lynch from LA’s Mysterious Mammal Recording between April and August 2015. It sees the band mature and explore new sonic territories while still remaining rooted in stoner and doom metal. ‘Invoke the Bizarre’ was featured and reviewed positively on various name magazines, blogs, and podcasts all around the world and got a worldwide release on October 31st, 2015. The band member’s own imprint The Mighty Riff Records is ensuring worldwide distribution of the album and has reached fans as far and wide as Chile and New Zealand, alongside the usual hot spots like Europe and USA.

The performing artistes:
Ganesh Krishnaswamy – vocals
Rahul Chacko – guitars
Srikanth Panaman – guitars
Avinash Ramchander – bass
Deepak Raghu – drums
