Cross-channel metalcore lot Betraying The Martyrs drop their second album 'Phantom' through Sumerian on July 14. But is it any good?
Picking up where ’11’s ‘Breathe In Life’ left off, Betraying The Martyrs continue to mix killer melodies, bilious anger, and wrap it up neatly with dramatic orchestral moments. Although circling the emotional chorus of ‘Walk Away’ and speedy riffing in ‘Lighthouse’ around an enjoyable, but oddly placed cover of ‘Let It Go’ [from Disney’s Frozen] does mean ‘Phantom’ takes a fair few spins to get your bonce around. Once it all sinks in, though, it’s clear that Betraying The Martyrs are one of the bands currently working their way through the ranks who are well worth keeping an eye on.
