Alright, figured I might as well experience the thrill of creating a poll.
Bethlehem is the sound of sickness crystallized in music, few managed to express such a deep darkness with their music back in the day. In 2019, I feel like these albums have aged well. They are still a somewhat disturbing entrance into a world of negativity. I really can't decide which one is the best among the first three offerings, Dark Metal being the one I come back to the most - probably because it's the most digestible. Dictius Te Necare is probably the best, while I find S.U.I.Z.I.D. too eclectic for its own sake. I haven't listened to the latter works. Discuss!

Dark Metal and Dictius Te Necare definitely are special records, I ended up voting for the latter due to it's more distinctive nature. SUIZID is alright, but whatever comes after it is nowhere nearly as interesting as their early work.

Didn’t listen to this band since many years. I remember up to and including Sardonischer I liked their stuff, good thread idea time to rediscover the early albums.

The first three are all good listens, but, in my opinion, Dictius Te Necare stands above the rest.

S.U.I.Z.I.D. is my favorite, followed closely by Dictius Te Necare and Dark metal. All three are essential though.

What are their latter albums like? Are they the type of band desperately trying to live again in the past?

They got really experimental after S.U.I.Z.I.D.

Mein Weg was basically a melodic rock album, as was Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. Between those two releases they made an awful remake of S.U.I.Z.I.D with Niklas Kvarforth on vocals called A Sacrificial Offering to the Kingdom of Heaven in a Cracked Dog's Ear. Their latest self-titled album that they put out a couple years back was a really solid return to form.

I'd say everything is worth checking out with the exception of that Kvarforth trainwreck.

Voted for Dictius Te Necare, but was also surprised that the recent self-titled album isn't included in the poll. Really solid release.

Are the EPs worth checking out?

Definitely. Especially Profane Fetmilch lenzt elf krank. This band can do no wrong outside of that one slip up that I mentioned in my last post. Jürgen Bartsch is an incredible songwriter.

Repeating: the first 3 are essential.
I voted for Dctius Te Necare. Almost reminds me of a fucked ( well they are all fucked) dark, nightmare airy tale/folk tale. As the album progresses it gets weirder and the ghostly clean sections become more prevalent.

Need to revisit Bethlehem, been a while.

Guess I need to check out their latest whilst I'm at it.

Voted for Suizid but I love all Bethlehem except for that utterly pointless remake of said album.
No mention of Bethlehem from 2016? That's one of their best albums. Hexaketcetcetc........is awesome too.

Looks like I've got to check out the albums past the initial trilogy. I thought I included the self titled work, but it doesn't show up on the list. Probably its the poll limits of entries.
