Formed in 2010 by two friends Ally Levine and Dylan Marks, Beekeeper rises from a mutual love and sincere respect for heavy music.
Bonding over classic albums such as Slayer’s “Show No Mercy” and Sepultura’s “Arise,” Beekeeper was inspired to create and play music that was influenced by their favorite aspects of metal. This accelerated the bands efforts and by early in 2011the duo began playing local house-shows and bars throughout the San Diego area.
Multi-instrumentalist Adam Wollach joined Beekeeper in 2013 as their full-time bassist. This three-piece was finally ready to shred with the complete sound they had always envisioned.
It didn’t take long for Beekeeper to ignite the local underground metal scene, where they have been bringing their high-energy performance to increasingly bigger stages including several shows with international touring bands like Cattle Decapitation, Brujeria and Warbringer.
Beekeeper’s songs are based on life experiences and their twisted imagination. Forged over many late-night writing sessions, their songs are delivered by Levine’s dynamic vocals and sinister guitar-work in concert with Wollach’s intricate accompaniment and Marks’ powerful drive and technical prowess.
In 2017 Beekeeper released their first studio album, “Slaves to the Nothing” to great acclaim. This aggressive, dynamic and innovative album was a huge step in their evolutionary quest to bring their unique sound and old-school style to the world. Since the release of their first album they have gone on 3 successful USA tours and will continue to expand around the globe.
Although 2020 has curbed many bands' activity, Beekeeper has refused to let the world circumstances hold them back. So far this year Beekeeper has put out music videos, lots of online content, and even a documentary. Also, Beekeeper is hard at work on their 2nd album which they expect to be ready in early 2021. In an ever changing world, Beekeeper and it’s goals remain the same: writing, recording, touring, and inspiring.
