Bedowyn are a band from North Carolina that plays an atmospheric mixture of sludge, stoner and doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Blood On the Fall".
Atmospheric synths start off the album before adding in more of a heavier sound that also incorporates stoner style melodies and once the drums kick in the music starts bringing in the heaviness of doom metal along with some sludge style screams which also mixes in with soem melodic singing.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear a lot of 70's influences in the bands musical style while also sounding very modern at the same times and clean playing along with acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and some riffs also bring in a touch of thrash and the instrumental also brings in a brief use of synths and keyboards before making a return back to a heavier direction on the following tracks while t here is still a power ballad almost towards the end.
Bedowyn plays a style of sludge and stoner metal that also mixes in elements of atmospheric, doom and thrash metal to create a very heavy yet melodic album, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Bedowyn are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of sludge, stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rite To Kill" "Leave the Living For Dead" "I Am The Flood" and "Lord Of The Suffering". 8 out of 10.
