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!

They also appeared on more gigs with SERENITY, ELVENKING, VICIOUS RUMORS, FATES WARNING and at MASTERS OF ROCK in July 2012. One live-song was also released on the official Masters of Rock DVD 2012. In August 2012 the band started its first European tour with CIRCLE II CIRCLE and played some more shows with AXXIS and with JORN LANDE. The band found a new permanent drummer – Lucas R. – and played the first show with the new line-up at METALFEST 2013 before they went on tour in 2013 with MASTERPLAN, MYSTIC PROPHECY & SIREN’S CRY.
The first half of 2014 was spent with finishing the upcoming second album, concert activities in the Czech Republic and Austria, and also with preparations for the next big gig on MASTERS OF ROCK’s main stage – this time with Tony Martin (ex-BLACK SABBATH) as a special guest!
