BETHLEHEM picture
Black Metal band from Grevenbroich (Germany) known for being one of the pioneers of death doom metal with their 1994 album 'Dark Metal'. Despite popular belief, dark metal is fictitious as a genre. Later, they would switch gears to a more depressive black metal sound.

Bethlehem's songs have morbid and sick lyrics about suicide, death and madness that may for the most part be personal to the band. They are very difficult to understand even for German speakers for their complexity and because they are full of metaphors.

On Dictius Te Necare (lat. You should/must kill yourself) Rainer Landfermann, well-known from the German Death metal band Pavor, is the vocalist, whose voice is described by Kostas Panagiotou as "one of the sickest and most extreme voices you'll ever hear from a human being". On S.U.I.Z.I.D. his place is taken by Marco Kehren of the band Deinonychus. Guido

BETHLEHEM Dark Metal

Album · 1994 · Death-Doom Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Dark Metal" is the debut full-length studio album by German death/doom metal act Bethlehem. The album was released through Adipocere Records in August 1994. It was recorded in January 1994 at Tape Productions in The Netherlands. "Dark Metal" has seen quite a few re-releases throughout the years, as the album´s reputation as a "cult" classic has grown.

Stylistically the music on "Dark Metal" is death/doom metal with a blackened edge. The blackened edge is mostly due to the occasionally snarling higher pitched vocals, that resemble black metal vocal style. There are also deeper growling vocals and spoken word sections on the album. So the black metal elements are few and far between and it´s also more death/doom metal type artists like (early) Paradise Lost, Winter, (early) Katatonia, and especially (early) My Dying Bride (without the violin) that the music on "Dark Metal" reminds me of.

The music is predominantly slow and doomy, occasionally faster though, sometimes atmospheric and always drenched in melancholy. The tracks feature pretty unorthodox structures, and while I wouldn´t use the word "progressive" about them, they certainly don´t follow the regular vers/chorus format. Sometimes it´s to an extent where the tracks sound fragmented like the case is with the 11:00 minutes long "Apocalyptic Dance", which is a track featuring many different sections, that doesn´t flow that well. The band even fade some sections out to introduce others, which to my ears is a pretty cheap compositional trick used to disguise lack of compositional skills. I usually hail adventurous and unconventional structures and songwriting in general, but this comes off slightly amaturish.

The good thing about "Dark Metal" is the dark and occult atmosphere, which is backed up well by the equally dark and organic sound production. The musicianship are generally on a decent level too and especially some of the lead guitar themes and the vocals are delivered with conviction. While I´m not as impressed by "Dark Metal" as others seem to be, I can understand the "cult" classic label, that the album has been given, and if you can hear past the occasional compositional glitches, it is indeed a very strong blackened death/doom metal release. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.
