Latest Bethlehem News
Below is our complete Bethlehem news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Metalrulez Productions has announed two new releases due this fall. Their announcement follows:
"We are proud to annouce that in Autumn we will release Stahlmantel - "Satan Snuff Machine".
Stahlmantel is a project created by Bartsch (also in Bethlehem). His newest creation is a combination of dark electronic sounds with aggresive black metal vocals of Nihilist (also in Abazagorath, In Memorium, Lord Gore etc) and twisted riffs by Olaf Eckhardt (also in Bethlehem). No fucking remorse! Really sick, twisted, suicidal music!
"In Autumn we will also release a newest Inseminator album. No suprises here, only pure oldschool thrash/black/death metal. Prepare yourself for total destruction!"
German "dark" metallers Bethlehem have completed work on their fifth full-length album, "Mein Weg," for a September release through Red Stream Records. Featuring ten songs with a running time of over sixty minutes, "Mein Weg" is said to have it all: "distinctive melancholic melodies, sturdy heavy metal riffs, rapid black metal blast beats, mega-slow doom dirges, dim piano lines and emotionally serene rock themes." The follow-up to 2001's "Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt" will be issued in a special digipack containing an 18-page booklet
German Dark metallers Bethlehem are currently working on their 6th Studio Album called 'Kavrassje Vrae'. The album will contain 10 new songs and is a mixture of all Bethlehem albums. The instruments still are recorded, vocals will follow soon by new vocalist Kemna and Bartsch himself. Album release will be sometime in the end of 2004.
Also a special 2 CD edition of 'Dictius te necare' containing RMXes, Videos, strange stuff, the soldout 'Reflektionen aufs Sterben' Mcd, never seen photos etc. is planned for the next months.
And a 7" called 'Alles tot' with special artwork, containing the "not albums" songs 'Schuld unsres knoechrigen Faltpferds' & 'Wo Adlers wagen' will be released thru Amortout records in April/May 2004.
Last but not least Bartsch & Kehren (Deinonychus) started working on a strange perverted electronic project which combines sick & bizarre moods with violent electronic beats, heavy guitars, bass and brutal vocals. Albums are planned for the future.
