Bedemon Reveals "Symphony Of Shadows" Details

Today, Svart Records announces August 24th as the worldwide release date for Bedemon's "Symphony of Shadows." The U.K. release date will be September 3rd, while a special North American release date for later in the fall is expected to be announced soon. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Inspired by the goriest of fright films and the most menacing of music at the time, guitarist/composer/journalist/author Randy Palmer churned out the very first doom songs written on North American soil. This understated innovator recruited the help of his bandmates, Pentagram co-founders Geof O’Keefe (drums) and Bobby Liebling (vocals) as well as schoolmate Mike Matthews (bass).

Finally, in 2004 to much fanfare, these rough, never-intended-for-public recordings were collected, repaired, and released as Child of Darkness: From the Original Master Tapes.

"Since then, Bedemon has seen a surge in popularity due to their intertwined history with the original Pentagram, in addition to their music being featured in the critically acclaimed award-winning documentary, Last Days Here (Sundance Selects/914 Pictures), chronicling the life and times of Pentagram and original Bedemon vocalist Bobby Liebling.

"Literally a decade in the making, Bedemon now proudly issues their sophomore release, Symphony of Shadows. Shortly after completing recording of the basic rhythm tracks in April 2002, band founder Randy Palmer was involved in a tragic car accident and passed away in August of that year. O’Keefe, Matthews, and new vocalist Craig Junghandel worked with recording engineer Shawn Hafley over the next decade to finish the project both in tribute to Randy and also because they felt so passionately about the strength of the material; the result is nine bone-crushingly heavy slices of pure '70s-flavored doom metal.
