Indianapolis-based metal band BETRAYED WITH A KISS has signed a two-album deal with Dark Star Records.A special edition of BETRAYED WITH A KISS' "Salvation And Ascension" album, including two bonus tracks, will be made available on January 28, 2014. The band will then enter the studio later in the year to lay down tracks for its as-yet-untitled sixth CD. Travis "Wrath" Crider and Rob "Lust" Mason formed BETRAYED WITH A KISS in late 2004. Both musicians were members of a thrash metal band that was signed to Germany's Modern Music Label at the time. Mason recalls: "We felt very boxed in stylistically in that particular project because we were unable to write anything too technical or not considered extremely aggressive. It was fine for the eight years I was in the band, but both Travis and I wanted to expand on our style to include more technical riffs and more melodic songs as time went on. "When the band dissolved in 2004, we decided to move forward with BETRAYED WITH A KISS." "Salvation And Ascension' is a very deep and detailed album," says Jeffrey A. Swanson, president of Dark Star Records. "You can hear every ounce of sweat and blood that was poured into this metal masterpiece. "This is what a metal band should sound like."
