Bethlehem

Profile:
Experimental Black/Doom Metal band from Grevenbroich, Germany, active since 1991. They call their style "Dark metal", which is the term they coined in the debut album title.

Until Dictius Te Necare, Bethlehem faced censorship and was even banned from playing in some German cities. It started when Matton gave one copy of their first demo to a 14 year-old boy. After a while his mother started to call the band, saying that because of their music, her son become aggressive and built a "Satanic altar" in his room. In cooperation with other parents, they started a crusade against Bethlehem and their "satanic" music (ironically, Bethlehem were never satanic).

Line-up:
Jürgen Bartsch - Bass (1991-present)
Steve Wolz - Drums (1999-2011, 2016-present)
Морок - Guitars (2016-present)
Onielar - Vocals (2016-present)
