Betray-Ed is a french one man band playing atmospheric/melancholic/minimalist metal, with a medieval/folk touch.

François (who also goes by the pseudonym “Walran”) is the mind behind this multi-faceted project, not only as the main composer for Betray-Ed, but also taking care of such duties like keyboards/vocals & producer, though friends & guests are invited to play cithare, guitars & bass.

It is a music that is closely tied to nature and the ups & down of Life. Not only in it’s atmospheres but also in its lyrics and themes, usually incorporating dreamy/calming sounds and textures to give the listener a sense of escapism and or liberty from the restraint of human existence.

Fifth full length, “Woods of Eternity”, was released by Noori Records ( the 17th of May 2010 as a strictly limited 30 copies edition.

François is currently working on the seventh full lenght, which should be released in 2014.

    Songs From the Oak of Wishes is amazing. Absolutely heartbreaking, yet somehow life-affirming.

    @cisnenegro : You're right, this is a really limited edition, but it's also the help I needed to release my music physically and not let the mp3 files sleep on the listeners' computers. As it was a label that released it and not something I did myself, the CD was professionnaly print, well designed, and promoted all around the internet. If one day a bigger label shows its interest in Betray-Ed, be sure that I will be happy to do something bigger too. Unfortunately, I don't think this day will ever happen...

    "Fifth full length, Woods of Eternity, was released by Noori Records as a strictly limited 30 copies edition. " Come on, with all my respects for independent labels and musicians, this is ridiculous. 30 copies? Where's the frontier between a record label and a self-made launching?

    One word to describe it: melancholic. And definitely worth checking out.

    As far as I'm concerned, A Poem is the best release from Betray-ed so far!
