ABOUT SEBASTIENSEBASTIEN is a melodic power metal band with symphonic and progressive influences. In 2010 the debut album "TEARS OF WHITE ROSES" (produced by Roland Grapow) is released via ESCAPE Music Ltd. CD also features seven special star-guests: Amanda Somerville, Apollo Papathanasio, Doogie White, Fabio Lione, Mike DiMeo, Roland Grapow and Tore Moren. The album is rewarded with enthusiastic reviews worldwide!
SEBASTIEN is on the first real tour (in the Czech Republic and Slovakia) during the autumn 2011. The band also appears on another gigs with SERENITY (Austria), ELVENKING (It), VICIOUS RUMORS (USA) and FATES WARNING (USA). One of the biggest events in the history of SEBASTIEN so far is their appearance on the main "Ronnie James Dio Stage" of mighty MASTERS OF ROCK festival in July 2012 (with three guests there on stage: Roland Grapow, Apollo Papathanasio and Katie Joanne). Till the end of 2012 SEBASTIEN is also playing shows with AXXIS (Ger) and then with JORN LANDE (Nor).
In August 2012 the band starts the first European tour with CIRCLE II CIRCLE (USA). It's called the „Tour Of Magellan 2012”. The first video of SEBASTIEN is released later in August 2012. It is made for a song "Dorian" and both album-guests of this song (Fabio Lione and Roland Grapow) appear there. Another step in SEBASTIEN’s career is a cooperation with German BALLROOM HAMBURG agency.
In July 2013 the band wins a competition and appears as a support band of ALICE COOPER (USA) in Kajot Arena (Brno, CZ). In the Autumn of 2013 SEBASTIEN goes to the second European tour – the band becomes a part of MASTERPLAN‘s „Novum Initium Tour 2013“ (also with MYSTIC PROPHECY and SIREN’S CRY on board).
In 2014 the band plays the next big gig on MASTERS OF ROCK’s main stage – this time with the legendary Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH) as a special guest. In November 2014 SEBASTIEN goes to GRAPOW STUDIOS again to mix the second album, which is called "DARK CHAMBERS OF DÉJÀ VU". The second CD is released worldwide via Pride & Joy Music in September 2015. On this album artists like Tony Martin (BLACK SABBATH), Zak Stevens (SAVATAGE), Sergey Baidikov (PRETERNATURAL), or Ailyn Giménez (SIRENIA) appear as special guests. .
During 2016 SEBASTIEN appears on MASTERS OF ROCK's main stage again (for the third time already), or on ROCK TOWER festival in Poland, and plays a gig also on a legendary German festival - WACKEN OPEN AIR!!! The band cooperates with Wacken Foundation for a couple of years already and the festival-people choose SEBASTIEN's music for official teasers of W:O:A 2016!
2017 is a busy year - SEBASTIEN works on the third album, called "ACT OF CREATION"! The CD is recorded in Petri Kallio's studio, DARK CHAMBER SOUNDS, mixed and mastered by Andy Mons, and so the whole product is created by the band itself for the first time!!! Released worldwide via Pride & Joy Music again in February 2018, with special guests like (again) Apollo Papathanasio (SPIRITUAL BEGGARS,ex-FIREWIND), or Mayo Petranin (SIGNUM REGIS), and with 3 official videos, this album is the most ambitious project of the band so far!!!
