The Saddest of Anniversaries

Geof reflects: It’s hard to fathom that it was fourteen years ago today – August 8, 2002 – that our beloved Randy Palmer passed away after a week in the hospital, following the auto accident he was involved in on July 31st, 2002. He didn’t live to see the Child of Darkness album released. He didn’t live to see the Symphony of Shadows album we’d just begun recording a few months prior, finally finished and released in 2012. And he didn’t live to participate in the first (and to date only) BEDEMON live performance at Psycho California, May 15, 2015.

To this day, we still meet people and get messages from fans who tell us how much they love BEDEMON. Randy may no longer be with us in the literal physical sense but his music will live on forever. To our brother of doom, you are loved and missed by more people worldwide than you ever could have imagined.
