"Verbracht in Plastiknacht"
Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. Say that once. Hell, don't even say it once. The tongue-twister simply means the fear of the number 666. U.S. presidents have feared the number 666, so it's fair to say some others will as well. The Number of the Beast has affected untold millions since it was ...

Introduction
Having grown tired of their earlier joint project, Dark Tempest's thrash-based aggressions, and united by a morbid, almost pathological fascination with suicide and death, bassist Jürgen Bartsch and guitarist Klaus Matton (who as a boy lost his father to suicide and mother to cancer) founded Bethlehem in 1991. Along with vocalist Andreas Classen and drummer Chris Steinhoff, the duo proceeded to channel their rampant negativity into the moody, atmospheric brand of dark/black metal (punctuated by tortured shrieking) presented on 1993's Thy Pale Dominion 7" E.P., and 1994's aptly named full-length debut Dark Metal. Their spirits did not improve on subsequent, despair-drenched outings like 1996's Dictus Te Necare (translation: "Kill Yourself"), 1997's S.U.I.Z.I.D. (full title: Sardonischer Untergang Im Zeichen Irreliogiosen Darbietung) and 1998's Reflektionen Auf's Sterben E.P., and various vocalists, drummers, and keyboard players sifted through their ranks as well. Bethlehem also ran into quite a bit of trouble with German authorities over their perceived glorification of death, and, among many, tasteless self-promotion stunts, claiming that former singer Classen had 'offed' himself! The band managed to stay a few steps ahead of the law, however, and even endured the departure of leader-in-misery Matton to complete 2001's ambitiously dark, industrial-tinged double-disc set Schatten Aus der Alexander Welt. Followed by Mein Weg and Stönkfitzchen with Niklas Kvarforth (Shining) on the vocals.

Many of Bethlehem's songs have morbid and sick lyrics, which may for the most part be personal to the band. On Dictius Te Necare (latin for "You should/must kill yourself") Rainer Landfermann is the vocalist, whose voice is described by Kostas Panagiotou in his review on dark-metal.de 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 from the Netherlands.

Over the years Bethlehem modernized their style which still could be described best as the Dark Metal it always was. In 1998 Bethlehem collaborates on the soundtrack for the American underground movie Gummo with the tracks Schuld Uns'res Knöcherigen Faltpferds and Verschleierte Irreligiösität.
