Betrayal – Black Magic Whore

a4175506752_10 I’ll say this once and once only: do not let that cover or album title dismay you or make you think this album isn’t to your taste. If your taste is straight heavy metal that doesn’t fall under any sort of subgenre other than just “metal”, then Betrayal are here with just the album for you! This British band have created an album that if someone told me was made in the early days of metal, I would’ve totally believed them because that’s the era this has the sound of. The vocals off of “Black Magic Whore” have got a real smooth feel to them that helps the lyrics really flow and not have a sort of mechanical rhythm, if you know what I mean by that. The guitars also surpassed my expectations as they were very rhythmic and had a killer sound to them that any heavy metal fan can only give a thumbs up to no matter what, and the same exact thing goes for the drums as the beat that they maintain throughout “Black Magic Whore” is really solid as it helped kept the pace going really, really well. Overall, Betrayal have made a very well rounded album that is practically made for any fan of straight up heavy metal without wasting anyone’s time. My only lament is that the songs feel a little dragged out for my taste, but I’m able to see past that as “Black Magic Whore” truly is something else that has to be heard.
