De Franse metalcore band Bertraying The Martyrs heeft besloten om te stoppen. Als afscheid hebben ze een dubbelvideo uitgebracht voor “Irae + The Veil” en een EP online gezet genaamd “Godspeed” waarop beide tracks te vinden zijn. Betraying The Martyrs is opgericht in 2008 en heeft tot vandaag nog altijd drie originele leden gehad in de vorm van Baptiste Vigier, Valentin Hauser en Victor Guillet. Naast deze drie is ten56. zanger Aaron Matts lange tijd frontman van de band geweest.
Betraying The Martyrs have decided to part ways.
After a 15 years old very successful career that has seen the French band perform over 990 concerts throughout the whole world, BTM have decided to call it a day.
As we’ve always been, we’d like to remain transparent with you guys, who have been supporting us for all these years and through so many events.
Today’s world’s economical situation, and never ending increases in touring costs (during & right after Covid) took a massive toll on all of us, financially but also individually (physically and mentally) and we simply came to the conclusion that we don’t have the strength to move forward together anymore. For the past months, we have been struggling to function as a band, to make consensual, unanimous decisions and to be able to all look in the same directions.
That being said, it is with a lot of emotions and a very heavy heart that we would like to present to you our very last piece, a beautiful 7 minutes-long music video that took us immense efforts in the making. A farewell gift for you all to enjoy.
We would like to thank every single one of you for all those beautiful years spent together, we will cherish those memories for the rest of our lives.
