Since their inception in 2009, Manchester four piece Betraeus have gone from strength to strength developing their unique blend of atmospheric, progressive, death metal. With the average age of 19, their fusion of chopping riffs and blasting rhythms with intense atmosphere creates an epic metal experience that is mature well beyond their years, making them one of the UK’s most exciting underground bands.
In 2010 Betraeus successfully made their way to play the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Open Air with the likes Opeth, Children Of Bodom, Devin Townsend and more. They also played an intricate acoustic set on the Jägermeister stage at the festival, showcasing the diversity of their music. A year of UK touring and high profile shows with the likes of Blaze Bailey and Beholder followed, with the band most recently destroying the The Pepsi Max stage at Download festival this year.
Scheduled for a November release across all digital platforms, ‘Towards The Sun’ is an absolute must have for fans of Opeth, Death, Cynic, Bloodbath and Insomnium, and features two live tracks from their performance at Bloodstock.
“We’re very excited to have signed with Siege Of Amida Records for the release of our debut EP ‘Towards The Sun’. After playing Bloodstock and Download Festival in the space of a year this tops it off for us! Siege Of Amida has a great reputation for supporting underground metal and we’re very proud to be a part of their roster.” The band on signing with S.O.A.R.
‘Towards The Sun’ will be released digitally worldwide on 14 November via Siege Of Amida/Siege Digital.
