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."
-Jochen Strubel, FFM Rock.

"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."
-Ronald, Archaic Magazine.

Track Name: Ifrit Awakens
Instrumental
Track Name: Enlightenment of the Forsaken
“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”
Track Name: The Stench of your Faith
"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"
Track Name: Awaiting for Chaos
“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”
Track Name: Chronicles of a Bedlamite
"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"
Track Name: The Darkest Alliance
“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"
Track Name: Harp of Ruin
"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"
Track Name: Dogmatic Apprehensions
“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.”
Track Name: Vessels of Sin
“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

(You’re) living by the plans of a few.
Free will is lost, freedom is gone.”
Track Name: The Alabaster Corpse / Consequences
“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! (...)”
