    Commemoration brings together my work from 1998 to 2003, 5 years when, as you will see, I recorded a lot. Minimalist, factual, often dark and very pessimistic, that’s how I conceived Derniere Volonteat that moment. My equipment was very rudimentary, my texts quickly written on crumpled books, all recorded often in one or two days. It was perhaps the moment, that I was the most productive and also, by anger, the most inventive. A few years ago I started to think of a new edition of Commemoration, a review of those years of ‘iron and lead’, the testament of my ‘anti light’. This is Commemoration in its new edition. Good listening. Geoffroy Delacroix October 2018

  • Bethlehem ‎– Bethlehem (Vinyl, LP)

    Bethlehem ‎– Bethlehem (Vinyl, LP)
    Label: Prophecy Productions ‎– PRO202LP
    Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Limited Edition, Reissue, White
    Country: Europe
    Released: 27 Mar 2020
    Style: Black Metal

    Self-titled albums usually suggest either a questionable «return to the roots» or a band reinvention of sorts. For brooding black metal beasts, Bethlehem, however, the release of the eponymously titled ‘Bethlehem’ marks the 25th anniversary of the group, which the German group celebrates in their own wayward style.

    ‘Bethlehem’ is a welcome rejuvenation in every respect. When the line-up that recorded their 2014 release, Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia, fell apart, founding member/mastermind Jürgen Bartsch took the bull by its proverbial horns and matters into his own deviceful hands.

    After long-standing drummer Wolz returned to the fold, Bartsch recruited Russian guitarist Karzov (who took on a major role in Bethlehem’s songwriting) and a new singer: none other than Onielar from German black metal stalwarts Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult! Onielar’s deranged vocals add to the psychotic morbidity of ‘Bethlehem’, an album that conjures a fresh take on Bethlehem’s mid-to-late-90s sound that, says Bartsch, is «anarchic as always”.

    Ultimately, ‘Bethlehem’ encompasses everything the progenitors of Dark Metal are about, combining the group’s early harshness with an outrageous catchiness and the experimentalism Bethlehem has always boasted, all crowned with a production that perfectly balances both rawness and power.

    Bethlehem’s ninth LP is a symphony of sickness in the truest sense of the word!
