Missing Old BTM

I remember when their first EP was brillant and told the story of Abraham from the Bible. It was their heaviest album, and the lyrics were brillant. Now they're just desperate. The sound quality might be pheonemal, but there's no passion.

Finally realizing their potential

Fantastic album by these guys. Some parts even have this symphonic black metal feel which I really hope they expand up. They took some risks and they worked perfectly. Hopefully they continue along this path because this album is a straight up banger!

About Betraying the Martyrs

Based out of Paris, France, Betraying the Martyrs temper the punishing brutality of deathcore with melodic flourishes pulled from symphonic and progressive metal, giving it a theatricality that feels distinctly European. Formed in 2008, the band, which at the time was made up of singer Eddie Czaicki, guitarists Fabien Clévy and Baptiste Vigier, bassist Valentin Hauser, keyboardist Victor Guillet, and drummer Antoine Salin, would self-release its debut EP, The Hurt the Divine the Light, in 2009. A lineup change in 2010 would see Betraying the Martyrs parting ways with Clévy and Czaicki, recruiting guitarist Lucas D'Angelo and singer Aaron Matts to bolster their ranks for the release of their full-length debut for Sumerian Records, Breathe in Life, in 2011. Drummer Salin would eventually leave the band the year after the album's release, but Mark Mironov stepped in to replace him that same year. Their sophomore album, Phantom, arrived in 2014. ~ Gregory Heaney
