BETHLEHEM - Sign Again With Prophecy Productions, New Album On The Way2013-03-10
German black metal quintet Bethlehem has signed once again with Prophecy Productions. The band originally collaborated with the record label over a decade ago to produce their Profane Fetmilch Lenzt Elf Krank EP as well as their 2001 album -Schatten Aus Der Alexander Welt. Bethlehem's return to the label will see the release of the band's seventh studio album to be recorded in August/September of 2013 at Klangschmiede Studio E under the aegis of Markus Stock.
Jürgen Bartsch, the band's remaining founding member, had this to say about the renewed contract formation: "Our choice of label is based on knowing the person mainly responsible for it for many years - a foundation of trust not to be undervalued these days. As a plus, you are experiencing an artistic freedom with Prophecy Productions that has no rival - they are backing you 100%, and they are serious about it. We are absolutely convinced that this cooperation on an equal footing is going to produce many strange blossoms, as Prophecy vs. Bethlehem are just like chalk and cheese together."
