Betrayed is a dark rock/metal duo hailing from Portland, Oregon, and they’re here to dive into their picks for the 10 Best Goth Metal Albums.
Formed in 2020, the band created quite a buzz the following year with the release of their self-titled EP, which features the standout track “Candle Master”, and earlier this year they introduced themselves to US crowds as the opener at Amorphis‘headline tour with special guest Sylvain.
Building on that momentum, they recently debuted a music video for haunting new song “The Call,” the first single from their upcoming debut album, Two Shadows. It’s a style that’s hard to pin down and box into one of dozens of rock and metal subgenre tags, so let’s just make it simple – Hoaxed is built for Halloween!
In keeping with this distinction, we invited the duo to rank the 10 Best Goth Metal Albums, and since much like Hoaxed’s own music, goth metal is a brand that isn’t necessarily defined by a particular style – it’s quite fluid and wide open to interpretation, a concept the duo ran away with when this subgenre was reduced to just 10 records.
Check out Hoaxed’s picks further down the page and look for Two Shadows to release the Oct. 28 on relapse. Pre-order your copy of the album here and keep following Hoaxed Facebook, Instagram, Band camp and Spotify.
