Sevan - (Guide Me Holy Ararat)

Crank this to 7.2 of 11

Released: 2021

Genre: Post Metal, Sludge

Sounds Like: The Rollins Band, Old Man Gloom

Homeland: Rhode Island, USA


Track Overview:

1. Bleeding Crescent (6:49)

Great variety within this track, cascading guitar-work, angst and post-punk appeal.

2. Desert Walk (7:58) Standout Track

This track contains by far the most contrast. Impressive how well they bring it down.

3. Eetch (8:42)

Shades of Baroness and Black Tusk on this track.

4. Goddess (11:13)

Lyrically a bit repetitive for such a long track, vocals wear on listener here.

5. Kef (8:05)

Best fretwork of the album hits at the 6:55 mark. What a terrific ending to this song.


Album Nuggets

  • Luke's vocals can be grinding to the listener when engaging in a full listen. Sludge fans will have no issue with this.

  • Nice production overall and we were impressed with the band's relatively involved song-structure.

  • Luke's guitar-work is impressive. Again in particular check-out the last 2 minutes of 'Kef'.


Brew Pairing

Grey Sail Brewing has a wonderful double IPA that matches Sevan's aggression. 8.5%ABV brewed in Rhode Island. Chinook, Citra, and Mosaic hops. Juicy with minimal bitterness, a massive amount of hops, but smooth.

Sevan are:

Luke Chobanian - Guitars/Vocals

Colin McGandy - Bass/Power Electronics

Sean Thomas - Drums
