Until "Dictius Te Necare", Bethlehem faced censorship and was even banned from playing in some German cities. Everything 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, vicious and even built a 'satanic altar' in his room. In cooperation with other parents, they started a crusade against Bethlehem and their 'satanic' music.
