Biography

After releasing two independent EPs and following the signing of a record deal for their self-produced debut album with Roadrunner Records, BETZEFER established their status as Israel’s biggest and most successful metal band and set on a long episode of touring - playing, among others, as main support for the likes of Soulfly and Lamb of God in their European tours. Their immediate success with the new foreign crowds quickly put them on the main stages of the big summer festivals. Back in Israel, the band grew even stronger and started crossing into mainstream awareness, headlining the rock stages of the biggest Israeli festivals and constantly earning more and more attention from the local media.

In March 2007, the band went on tour as the main support for Sepultura and Upon their return to Israel opened for Megadeth in front of a crowd numbering in the thousands. Later this year, they parted ways with Roadrunner Records.

Early 2008, following a lengthy pre-production period, BETZEFER finally entered the studio to create their second full-length record titled ‘Freedom to the Slave Makers’, this time in a live recording session in pursuit of a more organic flavor to their sound. The band started looking for a new producer who could complement their hard work at the studio, and shortly afterwards were contacted by Warren Riker (Down, Santana, Lauren Hill), who was found to be a perfect match.
