Formed in the early 80’s, Traitors Gate were best known for their seminal NWOBHM era EP ‘Devil Takes the High Road’, which still remains a NWOBHM era ‘classic’ and is now considered somewhat of a collector’s item.
The original line-up of the band was changed immediately prior to the release of the ‘Devil Takes The High Road’ EP, to include Andy D’Urso as replacement guitarist, and with Dave McLean as replacement vocalist in 1985.
This particular incarnation of the band were the touring line-up from 1985 to 1989 and, having been the only line-up to have performed live under the Traitors Gate name, are generally considered to be the original members of the band.
Moving up to the present day, and in response to what seemed to be a growing number of requests to reform, this line-up eventually decided to reform in late 2016 in order to do what was to be a ‘one-off’ reunion show at the Brofest 2017 event.
However, requests to play other shows in Europe quickly followed, proving the band, apparently, still had something to offer in the live arena.
Sadly, the early part of 2017 saw the amicable departure of Dave McLean from the band.
In response, the band recruited ex-Mayhem Messiah singer Sy Davies. Sy’s particular brand of high quality vocals, and skills as a frontman, perfectly complements the Traitors Gate trademark brand of Power Metal.
After almost 30 years apart, and with a renewed desire to deliver the goods once more, Traitors Gate are fired up to be returning to the live environment and, with 2018 seeing the release of the ‘Fallen’ LP and 2020 seeing the release of the band’s 2nd album, the future is definitely metalling up!
