Staff review by

Bethlehem is one of best doom/black metal bands around and there's no-one to deny it. They have proven their worth with fabulous albums of extreme depression, albums like "Dark Metal", "Dictius Te Necare", "S.U.I.Z.I.D." etc and I am here to talk about their second release, the utterly inspired and menacing "Dictius Te Necare".

  I've only ever heard 'Tagebuch einer Togeburt' from this album and it's beautifully surreal and eerie. The only problem is I can't find the god damn album anywhere!

Just in this album. Vocals in S.U.I.Z.I.D and Dark Metal are pretty meh.

Just in this album.

Yeah I know. Once I was recommended their vocals when I was asking for some exaggerated stuff, then I went and listened to a random album and thought "those vocals aren't anything special at all"
But here they sound pretty good

Indeed. For me it's the highlight of the album. Sick and lovely vocals.

Rating: 9 This album dedicated to 'Suicide Victims'.

Rating: 10 Still have to listen to an album that reflects high levels of suicidal insanity like this one. But I guess that would be impossible.
