Founded in the fall of 2011 by Mark Peters, Todd Parham, Alex Traboulsi, and Marc Campbell, Bedowyn (pronounced Bedouin) infuses elements of classic metal, thrash, doom and Sabbathesque riffs into a powerful and multi-facetted sound accompanied by lyrics about mankind's dark side and the human struggle.
Their debut EP, "Wolves & Trees", released August 2013, has been met with critical acclaim from the metal community drawing comparisons to Mastodon, High on Fire, Sabbath, and early Metallica, and is a loud statement of what is to come. Bedowyn stands heavy and motivated, and ready to wander the world bringing their savage sounds to all.
“The approach of Bedowyn’s music will never go out of style, as their songwriting is pure genius.”

"Bedowyn is a band I want to see live. Not in a "The Chariot" way where the live show is something to take notice of but the album is a complete joke. No, I want to see Bedowyn live like I want to see The Sword live. Their music is there to knock you on your ass."
