Confessions of A Traitor is a metalcore band from the United Kingdom. They have released two EPs and one full length album. The EPs are Seasons in 2014, and Illuminate in 2016. Their first full-length album is titled Guided and was released in October 2019. The heavy, melodic, London-based, metalcore band, Confessions Of A Traitor released their honest and passionate debut album Guided in October via Sliptrick Records. This was their first new output since the 2017 EP Illuminate.
The band uses their ability to blend melodic elements with a heavier side of music to evoke an emotional response whilst lyrically exploring the lighter side of human existence, growing from the darkest experiences people endure. All this facilitating an escape from negative thoughts showing people that they can embrace and love themselves. They are creating a family and an atmosphere where you can completely loose yourself, giving people hope.
The 12 tracks of Guided are a musical exploration and a refinement of the band's journey so far, filled with the energy of their live performance, raw heaviness, and the soaring melodic sing-along hooks that the band has become known for. Lyrically, it is an expression of the positive elements of our lives and the trials that we all eventually have to endure.
Featuring the likes of Ryan Kirby of Fit For a King and Scott Kennedy of Bleed From Within, the band have formed bonds with other musicians that share their values of hard work, honesty, positivity, and faith. With Guided, Confessions Of A Traitor intend to spread the message of belief and self-worth, and leave the listener knowing that there will always be hope.
This is truly "Aggressive Music for Positive People"!
