No Clean Singing - Video Premiere
"Delivers a brand of death metal that’s ferocious and technically impressive, augmented by progressive instrumental flourishes, flashes of blackened barbarism, and a welcome attention to melody."
Decibel Magazine - Video Premiere
"This is ripping ass death metal. I mean, you don’t get more death metal than this." - Decibel Magazine!
Great news: our third album is entitled "Human Portal Phenomenon" and will be distributed globally through the North American label Horror Pain Gore Death Productions on May 4th! In Costa Rica it will be exclusively distributed by Insomnio. For us it is a great honor to offer this small contribution to the Central American scene. Preorder is available and expect much more details soon!
Advent of Bedlam from Costa Rica, Central America.
Advent of Bedlam rebirths with the song “Creatures of Yore”, their most mature, powerful, fastest and fluent musical work accomplished in the band’s 7 year career. Impressively tight and dynamic, showcasing an unique and elegant drum performance supported by the finest bass lines the band has recorded. The vocal performance stands out on it’s own and is by far, the best and most brutal execution in the band’s history. Guitars are darker, deeper and highly complement the musical dissonance creating a mystical stereo swarm with the most extreme riff compositions from the band to date.
Intense, bizarre and oddly familiar: words that define the unique act that is Advent of Bedlam, pure Extreme Metal hailing from one of the most promising, yet underrated Underground scenes in the world: Costa Rica; band that has shared local and foreign stages with such acts as Amon Amarth, Atheits, Behemoth, Dismember, Dying Fetus, Exhumed, Malevolent Creation, Magrudergrind, Napalm Death, Obituary, Rotten Sound, Sepultura and Septic Flesh among others.

Recommended by VH1’s That Metal Show as “Costa Rica’s best metal export”, Advent Of Bedlam is a vicious in-your- face death metal band taking the genre by storm. On August 2016 the band made a furious comeback when releasing the single “Creatures of Yore”: a massive sonic journey through an ancient place called Tassili N’ajjer which is part of the UNESCO's World Heritage List.
These caves contain ancient tales about the climatic changes, the animal migrations and the evolution of human life, told by rupestrian art, drawings and engravings in a place dated 12.000 years old, where representations of ancient Gods, giants and powerful visitors are also present. Is the “Great Martian God” drawing found on one wall an outer powerful beings or is it just a representation of ordinary humans in ritual masks and costumes? Which is the real history?
