“Tied by the tyrant’s mockeries, (to) fight for a right to be Inside I feel the urge; it’s not the end, but the awakening! Deceived! Ignis Fatuus, a delusion of life Silent! Contorted thoughts are never expressed Filled by the angst of ignorance, their secrets I will seek I will unveil the truth of roguery and conspiracies! As burning embers, my thirst for knowledge will torch, Away from the lamb I shall break loose Superstition bred from ignorance, Self-imposed absence from your mind, Deities made to keep you down, oh no, But I will not become one of you. Open your eyes and see, break the wall of intolerance Chased by the ones who manipulate (us), the oblivion calls for me Inside I feel the urge; the hunt is on for the anomaly! Exiled! All alone (I) seek for ones like me Outlawed! Contorted thoughts must be never expressed Filled by the angst of ignorance, their secrets I will seek I will unveil the truth of roguery and conspiracies! As burning embers, my thirst for knowledge will torch, Away from the lamb I shall break loose Beyond the slavery of a world built upon the lies of men, Beyond the orphans of the verity, there’s a new dawn. Suppressio Veri! Veritas vos liberabit! Lies will not stand, they have led us astray! Superstition has bred from ignorance, Leading us all to believe these lies, But I will not become anything of you Away from the lamb I shall break loose”

"Subconsciously we're all tainted (our) will is slowly erased, reduced, suppressed fanatism, the worst of all plagues Can't stand all this irrationality Sinners and Martyrs, they look the same to me. Dehumanized in terror, so truth remains concealed. Scavengers fed by grief and despair from a past of ambiguous devotions have made you believe the existence of false gods now pray to the wind, lie to yourself. For when we approach the end we will find that we will die and rot, there is no kingdom of light look how the world slay their lambs Sinners and Martyrs, they look the same to me. Dehumanized in terror, so truth remains under control. Can't you see the lie? Why to believe the word? Dogmas of human divinity Enlightened to preach their word... Hell grows with Faith Selective Salvation, under the skin of the prayer Why do you pray when you fear? as the lamb invokes its shepherd becomes easy to comprehend that power is in our will not in the cross, not in rotten remains seek the light, there was no sacrifice, no savior nor messiah not very far from a dream why don't open your eyes, awake run from the fetid stench of your faith"

“Led by our sins as they’re taking us over Desperation and fear, no, we cannot take cover Now we’re facing the chaos of men The end of our lives Despite the tales of our past Ambitions of men Have taking us out of our minds Dragging us out into losing control There’s nothing left to do now, (it’s) too late. A disrupted race, out of order, out of place Damnation has arrived to possess this earth Forming part of the insane mass Ensnared beyond escape To a realm of disorder To a realm of lies. Trapped in a system that stimulates and forces you to kill your thoughts, Hate and disgust will rule upon us all, a growing disease inherited by our fathers from which we cannot escape, chaos is manifested everywhere I see, salvation fades away, torn apart right in front our eyes, All is shrouded by shades Future is gone, Gone beyond any hopes The end of our lives Future is gone, Nothing but chaos, I see just misery”

"On my lonesome darkened cell Wherein silence never dwells Cold as the steel… On the floor I lie, forlorn Starving for days, chained to the wall No sight, dead inside I'm trapped in a maelstrom Afflicted my core (They) whipped me, (They) hit me (it) woke me up (I) just want to scream Breathless I am. For a penny they will pass To see the "God's Minstrels" Freaks of the ward… And I see their vile faces Laughing at me, with their odious stare Pain is all I feel Trapped inside these walls I became an empty shell Can I see the world through my own eyes? Pain is all that's real It is my curse, it's my world No sight, dead inside I'm trapped in a maelstrom Afflicted my core (They) whipped me, (They) hit me (it) woke me up (I) just want to scream Breathless I am"

“Come with us, we are preparing for battle for tonight we will conquer the world! from South to North, we gather and rise Loyal to those by my side Horns up, Dressed in black, Metalheads, ours is the world so embrace it Bang your head, Shout it out, the chant that deep down we all know United, we stand as one Beliefs divide, metal unites! We are like fire spreading across the land! Feel our flame… Let it burn! Freedom of soul, freedom of mind, embrace our darkest realm By metal we are bound, together as one Horns up, Dressed in black, Metalheads! Bang your head! Shout it out! Chant with us! We're growing and growing so we will not fall We'll rise up in battle against the false Join us and carry our standard It's also your cause, for metal is in your blood Let it flow and embrace it Become one with our fire Stand with us and fill this empty path burn with desire One direction to follow We will march tonight brothers and sisters rise We are the alliance, Ours is the call, Ours is the future, to carry and spread the word” We are the fire that never dies Brothers and sisters rise"

Harp of Ruin 05:20
"Listen to the sounds of doom, the songs of death, Arranged for Submission, extinction A nightmare resembling that which you fear the most Stare at the sky, the horizon is burning in colors of burial announcing the trembling of earth, death from above, a deluge of blood. The scourge of those who Gaze towards the Heavens, in shadows verging on the abyss of obscure wrath Symphonies of ruin overcome, the land bathes in the blood of mankind He who plays the melodies, plucking chords from his harp to control us with power, he's depraved in arrogance In his search for mightiness, he'll slay the world Listen to the putrid song and haunting chants, Arranged for commotion, destruction Vultures are feasting on carcasses of those who rot The sky becomes dark on the curtains of dusk, leaving nothing but stillness Proclaiming the dimness will come, the deed is done, a deluge of blood The end of life, soon will come. Thus void of earth, time has come to die"

“You are afraid to speak up Their words are your only command Confine your thoughts, restrict your words fixed to my vision of life They’ll tear you down Right to your knees, that’s how you will live your life Opposition, contradiction, inside You are afraid to lose your soul So you pay tribute to your god Become a slave of their own creed …Of their greedy lord Welcome to the reign of oppression Doctrines of fear translate into world domination (You) Doubt your fate; (you) think you’re lost, Taught to yield and paralyze You know it’s time to surrender your mind They’ll tear you down Right to your knees, that’s how you will live your life Opposition, contradiction inside you Destroying your illusions and your thoughts Drifting away from your soul Submission, damnation, the pest you breathe! Welcome to the reign of oppression Doctrines of fear translate into world domination Into their game you will fall forever and ever again ‘till the blindfolded justice arrives You’ve lost your voice; you’ve lost your vote (You’re) living by the plans of a few. Free will is lost, freedom is gone.”

“I awoke damning the light and knowing that I'm all alone the darkened room's silver light, ('tis) a darkness so subtle I (can) still see The ghosts of all that has passed and come from our one tryst The burrow's humid and warm but the cold is so deep in my bones My naked skin is peeling attempting to shed what was once the mark of your scent on my flesh Revolting is this feeling A haunting I cannot embrace nor escape from at all... Such emptiness! Alone I stand and heaving adrift on a sea of inadequate foam covering all (and) corroding me I can't stand my sight I must seek the night bury my damned feelings I must kill my illusions, I... I hope for burning skies rather than this pain! Sanity's such a joke when one is broken! Feelings are such a drag, a bastard-god's little token! I am no one at all! Don't bother to know me! A soiled mangle of lies... I scream but nobody listens! Embracing my deepest fears… And I' m left with nothing! My words are spent in a dream for one that doesn't believe them... (I'm) raping the love of my once giving soul! If only light would not make you blind then maybe I could know you! If only I could bring down the sky and make the seas tempestuous! (...)”

about

"The hard work and effort that went into "Behold The Chaos" is very obvious: the instrumentation is ridiculously tight, the vocal duality is lethal, and there is a bounty of emphatic rhythms and ethereal melody on an elite level".
-Brian Davis, metaleater.com.

"Advent Of Bedlam nous offre une musique Death métal directe, précise, intense contenant beaucoup d’agressivité. Ils sont certainement la formation métal la plus importante à émerger du Costa Rica. Il ne faudra pas se surprendre de les voir sillonner les différents continents afin de faire découvrir leur musique aux amateurs de métal du reste du monde dans un avenir rapproché"
-Albert Lamoureux, Musik Universe.

"BtC se desarrolla como un álbum dinámico, que por momentos coquetea con lo experimental y rebosa en variantes, pero —y esto es de suma importancia cuando se intenta mezclar sonidos tan distintos entre sí— nunca pierde cohesión, amarre."
-AQA, 89decibeles.

"Mich haben die Jungs jedenfalls gefesselt und ich würde mich freuen, wenn ADVENT OF BEDLAM mit so einer geilen Scheibe, so einem fetten und klaren Sound auch bald in Europa Fuß fassen könnten, denn da dürfte sich so manche Band schon mal vorsichtshalber warm anziehen."

"BEHOLD THE CHAOS is pure death metal the way it was meant to be played, but with just a small touch of melody. It differs though in the fact that the melody is provided by the guitars and there is no compromising in the vocal department like most of the modern day death metal bands do. If you are into death metal of the traditional variety like MORBID ANGEL and DEICIDE, and maybe even AT THE GATES, ADVENT OF BEDLAM should soon come across your music radar. If not, seek them out anyway and I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised."

"here we have a killer record that will satisfy the most critical musical taste…the production stands for its own, but if that wouldn’t have been enough, the stuff really kicks asses all over around, so don’t waste any longer, get in touch with them and order a combo they have with t-shirts plus the album…both for an attractive price."
