Bethlehem To Release New Mini-CD

Germany's Bethlehem has issued the following update about releasing a new mini-CD and working on a full-length album:

"Greetings, the recordings for our self-produced Mini-CD are finished. During the last days 'Niklas Kvarforth' did an amazing vocal job in German, Swedish and English. One song was sung by 'Bartsch' himself. The MCD will contain four brand new songs, a new done version of 'Gestern starb ich schon heute' and a bonus track 'the 11th hour...' sung by 'Nihilist' from Seattle/USA.

"At least this MCD should have a total playtime of around 31 minutes. In the next weeks the songs will be mixed and should be released later in this year by Red Stream, Inc. We gonna keep you informed bout a release date. The line-up: Steve Wolz (Germany) - drums, Bartsch (Germany) - bass guitar, piano, vocals, Kvarforth (Sweden) - main vocals, Eckhardt (Germany) - guitars, piano

"Reuben Jordan (USA) of 'Benighted in Sodom' has a guest guitar appearance on two songs which originally were written by himself. In the meantime both songs completely were recomposed by Bartsch and basically have nothing more in common with these original versions.

"The whole MCD is self-produced and will be mixed and mastered at 'alexanderwelt' by Bartsch/Eckhardt. Eckhardt who already created the Bethlehem logo, 'Dark Metal' + 'Dictius Te Necare' front cover, the 'Silencer - Death Pierce Me' logo and front cover and a Bethlehem T-Shirt design, again will create the front cover drawing for this MCD. A new full Bethlehem album is scheduled for 2011. The recordings will be done by Peter Bjärgö of 'Arcana' in April 2011, Eskilstuna, Sweden."

I will definitely be looking forward to the new Bethlehem - hopefully it will be more material like on "Mein Weg".
