SEBASTIEN is a melodic power metal band with symphonic and progressive influences. The band was born on roots of another heavy metal group, NAVAR, with an ambition to catch the worldwide interest, in 2008. In November 2009 the band went to Grapow Studios (Slovakia) to record the album "Tears Of White Roses" which was produced by Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN, ex-HELLOWEEN) himself! In November 2014 SEBASTIEN went to Grapow Studios again to finish the mix of the new album 'Dark Chambers Of Déjà Vu'. For the most part, it feels like a continuation of what they did on "Tears Of White Roses", using a very melodic brand of power metal with a strong use of keyboards, symphonic elements, and huge vocal melodies to serve as the foundation, while adding in various other elements throughout.
