A Traitor Like Judas is an Acuity.Music / Swell Creek artist

Risen as one of the European bands that pioneered the aggressive and powerful mixture of death metal and hardcore that strongly saturates modern heavy music, A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS triumphantly returns with 'Endtimes', the group’s long-awaited third full length album.

In a time in the extreme music underground where styles and sub-genres have been indented, molded, and mashed together countless times before, and only very few bands can look back on a history longer than a few years, A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS owns the results of almost a decade of experience, more importantly, an attitude that hasn’t been bent or broken after years in the underground – a value blatantly personified on 'Endtimes'.

'Endtimes' is A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS' contemporary document of a dolorously dying world. Musically and lyrically it epitomizes the soundtrack to modern man's economical, social and spiritual anticlimax. Singer and lyricist Jasper about this approach: "Just look outside and you'll see war, ferocious egoism, ecological destruction and madness all over the place. It's unbelievable how ignorant humanity can be, blind to unmistakable stop-signs that have been around for years now. Our new album picks up this deadly issue as a central theme."

The band's unbreakable will to tour constantly and make every live-show a 100%-happening, amongst others, caught the eye of new home Swell Creek Records. Label-owner Bauke about his latest signing: "A constant and professional live-presence is the decisive factor when it comes down to singnig a band. A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS are an amazing and extremely active live-band. Apart from that, the songs on 'Endtimes' are the most powerful and convincing metal/hardcore approach I have heard in a long time.".

With the help of producer Kristian Kohlmannslehner (Kohlekeller Studios), and the band’s knack for rousing melodies and outright aggression, 'Endtimes' flows into a commingling of razor-sharp metal-riffing, unreckoned breakdowns and all-embracing catchy lead guitars. Ultimately this harmonious compound is A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS' strongest point, enabling the band to speak to any audience ranging from die-hard metalheads over hardcore-fanatics to basically every fan of heavy music.

Now with their young and confident new lineup A TRAITOR LIKE JUDAS looks toward reclaiming the metal-hardcore-scene they pioneered. Their new album 'Endtimes' leaves no doubt on their success.
