about betrayal

It's time to redefine melodic Death Metal from Germany!
In a melting pot of technically skilled, classic Death Metal, Swedish Melo-Death and a touch of Thrash, the four guys from Aschaffenburg create a captivating mixture of handcrafted Death Metal Music, ready to set everything on fire that gets in their way.
The band emerged from the past line-up changes like a phoenix out of ashes and grew from a spark to a firestorm in more than ten years of existence.

Founded in Aschaffenburg in 2005, BETRAYAL soon released 'Of Lust And Loss' in 2007, an EP that stirred up the local underground, sold out on the day of release and showed the potential of the young band around drummer Manuel Caccamese.
After several line-up changes, BETRAYAL found themselves together again in 2014. With Alex Burkl on rhythm guitar/vocals and Philipp Gherig on bass, a foundation was finally laid to build a golden future on. They quickly drew attention to themselves again with a demo in 2015.
In 2016, eleven years after the band was founded, BETRAYAL released their first album 'Infinite Circles' on Transcending Records. They were able to gain many new fans and received nothing but great reviews.
With their new addition Bastian Kraus on Lead Guitar in January 2019, they not only got fresh blood but also musical quality and creativity on board. BETRAYAL hit the studio 2019, working on their second full length album. More news will be announced soon.


We'll update you about upcoming shows in 2021.
We are exited to see you out there!
