Bane Of Bedlam are a band from Australia that plays a progressive mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Monument Of Horror".
Acoustic guitars and clean playing starts off the album and after a minute thrash metal style guitar riffing makes its presence known in the music along with some blast beats, melodic leads, and a mixture of screams and growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
You can hear a great amount of melody being utilized in the bands musical style and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as adding in elements of groove metal into their musical sound and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the acoustic guitars of the first track also make a return in certain sections of the recording and they also enhance the progressive nature of the bands musical style.
Bane Of bedlam go back to the old school styles of death and thrash metal and add a more progressive tinge to them as well as a great amount of groove metal elements which takes these genres into a more modern direction, the productions sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover violent, dark and horror themes.
In my opinion Bane Of Bedlam are a very great sounding mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Woken By The Horde" "Monument Of Horror" and "Vultures Of War". 8 out of 10.
