Traitors Return To Earth – Betting On A Full Collapse
Self released – 2013
Rock, Doom, Sludge, Metal, Noise
After an impressive five track EP called Smoke Screen in 2011 the Ohio foursome Traitors Return To Earth, err, return with their full-sized debut called Betting On A Full Collapse. The focus has shifted from political criticism on war and US foreign policy towards economical criticism and the policies of the World Bank. Darker, raw and more brutal riffs are applied and the atmosphere becomes as bleak and twisted as the economic reality of our future world. The sheer magnitude of this sludge metal extravaganza almost becomes unbearable which again mirrors our society and its in-equality. Harsh, coarse and possessed vocals scream their truth into you ears as the drums beats away your false armor of doubt and belief. Sludge noise and Cimmerian vibrations at its best. Plus the vinyl release will feature all original cover art from W. Ralph Walters, including an original Traitors Return to Earth themed comic book by W. Ralph Walters as well as a download for the album plus two bonus tracks!
