Great cover, congrats. You sing very well on this one, because I think it's harder to sing a piano ballad than to sing a Heavy Metal piece. Well, again, congrats. I just think...errr...the Edguy ballads aren't that great (except for 'Wash Away The Posion'), their other songs are waaay better. But that's just me. And this is no Edguy thread.

Keep up the good work, with Betrayer as well with just singing.

It's pretty cool that your drummer has been in your band almost as long as he has been drumming.

Hey thanks for checking it out & for the compliments! Your very right about it being harder to sing a piano ballad compared to a heavy metal song, well maybe not harder notes to sing, but ones voice does stand out more so you can't hide as much....no drums or distorted guitar to attract the listener away from the vocals. I'd have to agree with you about Edguy ballads, I prefer their heavier stuff too! This is the only one I could think of though that could be recorded without a full band in my vocal lessons.

It's pretty cool that your drummer has been in your band almost as long as he has been drumming.


Yeah, when we first got together we both couldn't really play anything. I remember one of the first songs we tried to jam to (key word "tried") was Enter Sandman. We recorded it on this cheap tapedeck (as we would many of our practices) and he had this really squeaky kick pedal.....it sounded hillarious.

Thanks, yeah it's a pretty easy song. Only reason we recorded that one was because there was supposed to be a Black Sabbath tribute album with local bands (which never came out) and we thought we had to have a track recorded quickly if we wanted to be on it. We already played Paranoid at shows so we thought we might as well do that one.

Betrayer is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new single on June 10th, 2007.

The new track, entitled 'Headed for Disaster', was co-written between BETRAYER and long-time songwriter, performer, and now operator of the Canadian Conservatory of Music, Pete Palazzolo (ex-TANZEN, SOLDIER, currently with ROSE CITY OVERTURE).

The track was recorded and mixed at SPECTRE SOUND STUDIOS by engineer Glenn Fricker, who has worked previously with such acts as RANDY BLYTHE of LAMB OF GOD, WOODS OF YPRES, BLOODSHOTEYE and BLACK KREEK. Vocals were recorded by Pete Palazzolo.

Mastering was done by MIKA JUSSILA of FINNVOX STUDIOS, who's credits include NIGHTWISH, EDGUY, CHILDREN OF BODOM, STRATOVARIUS, MOONSPELL, and SENTENCED.

BETRAYER is excited with the new tones and sounds achieved on this new recording. The hard work of FRICKER and JUSSILA allowed BETRAYER to experiment with recording, mixing, and mastering to achieve a new sound as they continue to write and rehearse for their next full-length album.

The new track will be available during an online listening party on June 10th, 2007 at 5:00pm EST and will be able to be accessed by visiting the chatroom at the following address:
