Betrayed: From The Little San Franciso…….

Betrayed - The Unbeliever

Visual stream from the band Betrayed of the title track from the release The Unbeliever being released on January 22, 2021.

Betrayed was formed in late 1987 in Valparaiso, Chile by drummer Claudio Tapia. Valparaiso if the country’s second largest city, and once called The Little San Francisco in the mid – 19th Century. In 1989, Betrayed would record their first demo, titled Our Option, which quickly garnered attention in zines around the globe and became a favorite among demo collectors and tape traders.

In 1990 the band would re-enter the studio and record their debut album, 1879: Tales Of War, for Oso Records which was produced by Anton Reisenegger (Pentagram, Fallout, Criminal, United Forces). Though Betrayed garnered strong reviews and played many prominent shows, they would eventually disband in 1994.

In 2004 Claudio Tapia would begin to reform Betrayed, but it wasn’t until 2015-2016 that all the pieces fell fully into place and the present line-up was fully formed.

With the line-up of drummer Claudio Tapia, vocalist Erik Flores (Pyroclastic), guitarists JL Olmos (Soulrot) and Mauricio Castro (Sadistic Murder), and bassist Jacob Wilschrey (Soulrot), the band would unleash their first new music in over two decades with the single Looters Will Be Shot.

In 2017 Betrayedwould begin recording more new material which would be realized as The Unbeliever. These recordings would catch the attention of the Chile based label Arataria Records who would release the recordings in that region.

The sound of Betaryed is Thrash Metal played the way it was meant to be, catchy & razor sharp. Stylistically, we would describe them as Bay Area Thrash (Testament, Exodus, Heathen, Forbidden) cross pollinated with a pinch of East Coast snarl.

The Unbeliever features 12 crushing tracks in two parts: The Unbeliver and Back To Tales Of War,with the latter being live in the studio re-recordings of songs from their past: 1989 Our Option Demo, and the 1990 album release 1879: Tales Of War, all performed with their present line-up. Betrayed is for fans of: Testament, Exodus, Forbidden, Overkill, Heathen.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6037 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
