Description

Black/Doom

Sick, twisted and suicidal dark metal from a cult band. Bethlehem always change and experiment further with each release, but they have kept their trademark elements, defined by extreme, over-the-top vocals and a sound that could be described as 'manic depressive', alternating between heavy, brutal parts and ambient, nihilistic moments. Fourth album Schatten aus der Alexander Welt sees the band moving into more of an experimental/electronic direction, while their newest album Mein Weg pursues a blackened gothic metal sound.
