Ben Sebastian is the curator of The Sonic Symphonic Podcast; an outlet for unsigned metal artists to get heard along with imaginative real-life story-telling and colourful interviews - all immersed in his philosophical mission to promote and engender musicians to invest in the furtherance of their own unique talents above all else as a mechanism for overcoming, and surpassing, the frailty of personal mental health and the general vicissitudes of life. Each month he plays the best in unsigned metal from around the globe and in between uploads video shorts as and when he discovers new music.

As a musician, Ben Sebastian's 'Kalasin' series is a demonstrative outpouring of the extremes of epic symphonic and maniacally progressive metal musicality as in each instalment he unleashes his latest vivid instrumental, filmic, and mind-bending creations pushing each release to its absolute limitation. Each track is a journey in its own right, a navigation through seething sound-sphere seas whose tides seek to push, pull, unite, divide, ameliorate and obliterate the expectations of the listener. As if penned by a quill whose ink is dipped in the well of madness; Ben writes with fight, fervour and fever, yet is untiring in his desire to always be dynamically prolific in his dramatic proliferations.

Ben is currently composing 'Ghenghis' - an epic retelling of the Ghenghis Khan story in all its horror and brutality (whilst intermittently releasing a series of stand-alone singles to demonstrate his brand of vocal style, that will tell it).
