Bevar Sea: India’s premier stoner doom rockers…..

Bevar Sea – The Timeless Zone

Bangalore is the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka and the city is located 949 meters above sea level. Pretty high location, and the band Bevar Sea from Bangalore is high-flying right now!

India’s premier stoner doom rockers Bevar Sea are back with their first new recorded material since 2015’s Invoke The Bizarre. The Timeless Zone is the first single off their third full length album.

The Timeless Zone Lyrics   

Come hither, my goddess of deluded joys

The rapture in your glow

My melancholy yearns your pensive touch

A cunning thief of my youth

The labour of time and the waiting grows

My demon painted on the sky above

Mirror cracked, deceives the ungodly truth

A hell bound sigh, my head hangs low

She’s closer, my goddess of forbidden joys

The purity ever so illicit

The first word’s flouted and I taste the fruit

Her instance I arise to face

Tune in, turn away, drop out in the timeless zone

These visions etch away

Turn on to the one

Tune in, turn away, drop out in the timeless zone

Consume, consummate

Turn on and be the one

In this amusing place

Far more than ordained

The timeless zone lays in wait

From a darker time

Far from promises we made

For the timeless zone you pray

For those who seek its gaze

Behold her eyes, a spell of devious ploys

A rapid current, nectar filled

A curious knot in the pits of the self

Noontide ushers in forever time

The vast presence, her wings outspread

Onset of my journey unto you

Bevar Sea:

Ganesh Krishnaswamy – vocals

Srikanth Panaman – guitars

Michael Talreja – guitars

Avinash Ramchander – bass

Five years after releasing their sophomore album Invoke the Bizarre, Bangalore’s Bevar Sea used the Covid-19 imposed lockdown as an opportunity to regroup and start working on the third album titled The Timeless Zone. With the backdrop of the lyrics portraying a tryst with the consciousness of man, storying into travels and visions within the self, the music on this song and over the course of the album, pays homage to the glory years of the 70s and 80s hard rock and metal with the typical rifftastic stoner/doom sound the band has embraced on the two albums prior to this.

Bevar Sea adds: «The Timeless Zone, the song and the album, continues our approach of playing stoner doom music while being even more loyal to our hard rock and metal roots than before. Every band member had to step up and learn how to record themselves and work via email for arrangements, demos, and finally turn up one by one to record. This album is us embracing the 2021 way of making music while also being busy working from home, taking care of our families, and just dying to be able to play this new music to our fans live some day».

With their beginnings in2008, the band roared into the live scene in 2011, and in the following year their eponymous album ‘Bevar Sea was released, which earned them the Best Emerging Act at the Rolling Stone Metal Awards India and a slot in the coveted Maryland Deathfest in 2013 and rave reviewsworldwide. Mixed and mastered by the legendary Billy Anderson, the album was regarded highly for their 45-min hook-laden stoner/doom experience by fans and quickly garnered the band a firm reputation in their country and internationally.

The fan favorite Abishtu which narrates the tale of a serial killer out for hipster blood and on the run from the law became a permanent chant by fans whenever they stepped on stage, while the 14-min ‘Mono Gnome’ about a short statured man and his love for a witch closed the album and turned out to be the pick in the doom circles with their reefer-pleasing, Sleep– esque flow of slow riffing and raspy vocals.

Bevar Sea followed up their debut release with Invoke The Bizarr in 2015. Drifting into new sonic territories, the band crafted a sinister mood for their audience in the first three tracks Bearded And Bizarre, Bury Me In Nola, and Sleeping Pool which boasted hooks over neck-twisting grooves, the down-tempo chug of the guitars and soaring lead guitars. With the vocal melody chanting Look To The Sky, the band closed the album with the epic The Grand Alignment which comprised of a sublime cascade of riffs, solos, bass lines and vocal hooks.

Recorded at a breakneck pace over 10 days at Adarsh Recording Studio and mixed and mastered by Matt Lynch (LA’s Mysterious Mammal Recording, also from the incredible band Snail), ‘Invoke the Bizarre’ was well received by the press and fans alike for their intricate song arrangements, unique story-telling, mature and well-rounded performances.


Om Ulf Backstrøm (6868 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
