Born Of Osiris, Betraying The Martyrs and Volumes hit Gramercy Theatre in NYC on June 25th as part of The New Reign Tour Part II. The bands had tons of new tunes to play and mullet wigs to wear (why?) and our very own Anthony Bello captured some of the best moments. Check out the full photo gallery right here!
“I don’t think this story has ever been told!”
We recently wrote to France’s Betraying The Martyrs as they tour Europe and we got some inside info from frontman Aaron Matts. In this interview we touch upon all kinds of wonderful things, such as their new album, The Resilient, European cuisine and using steaming water to burn someone’s skin off. Fun, right?
France upgraded bread to the baguette, manual decapitations to the more efficient guillotine, and now in a delicious twist for our ears, Paris gives us the a new record from Betraying The Martyrs.
The Resilient is a fresh take on an existing genre. The band’s third studio album is a twelve-track amalgamation of several “-core” and metal subgenres; metalcore, deathcore and symphonic metal are just some of the ingredients. It is a well thought out inquisition into our purpose in life without feeling weak or overdone. It calls out cowards that harm, kill and take advantage of the innocent while forcing listeners to question their actions (or inactions). Aside from resilient, the record is existential and nostalgic.
