Betrayel were a great metal band from the bay area that played shows during the mid 80s... I saw them a bunch as they opened for the likes of Vio-lence, Death Angel, the Mentors, etc. at the Rock on Broadway.
I remember thinking they were hella cool because the members moshed around so crazily while playing, completely tangling their guitar cords to the point where it just seemed ridiculous.
Betrayel were one of those amazing SF bands that went on to do nothing... They released this amazing demo, and thats about it.

  2. Unbelievable! I am so stoked to see this on here. Great site. I LOVE IT! Keep up the good work.

    I grew up going to the same shows and enjoying the excellent Bay Area punk/metal scene. This brings back good memories...

  3. Great band and a great demo!
    Thanx for this sharing!!

  4. Even though they played the Bay Area so much they were actually a band out of Fresno Ca. the former members are still in bands and tearing up stages to this day...

  5. Such a great band and time! Wondering if you might be able to repost Helpless Souls demo? Would be eternally grateful!
