Bevare Sea - Invoke The Bizarre

Bevar Sea sure know how to fucking riff. If there latest release Invoke The Bizarre does nothing else it proves that these Indian sludge lords know what it means to bring it loud, slow and heavy as balls. A joy to listen too you find yourself getting lost in the forward momentum of this record, glorying in the vibes as riff after riff ends up being, in a phrase, so fetch. With six tracks Bevar Sea effectively put their country on the sludge metal map and have proved that they have what it takes to be an internationally touring juggernaut.

The point is - Bevar Sea speak to a sort of primal power within all of us and help to create sonic waves that wash over you and leave you glorying in the murky magic that the band has been able to conjure up. With pentatonic solos accenting tracks like Sleeping Pool you find yourself in awe of the apparent charisma that the band holds within. These guys trudge forward proudly, but you can sense the pride in their march, this album is clearly a labor of love, even if it does feel largely jam oriented. It's scummy and demented and revels in that - and if that's not your cup of tea then you might as well turn around, because Invoke The Bizzare is just not for you.

Invoke The Bizzare captures a wealth of emotion despite a fairly limited sonic palate and does some especially cool stuff on tracks like Sleeping Pool where the raw psychedelia behind the music comes to the fore. As for now - Bevar Sea have left me very curious to hear more - after all, these guys are fucking good, and are playing a genre that is absolutely exploding right now. I would not be surprised if they ended up at Roadburn, Desertfest, or any of the other similar festivals currently blossoming in Europe - Bevar Sea have proved the world should be listening - the question now is will they?
