Heavy melodic London metallers, Confessions Of A Traitor will release their honest and passionate debut album Guided on 18th October via Sliptrick Records, their first new output since the 2017 EP Illuminate. The band use their ability to blend melodic elements with a heavier side to evoke an emotional response whilst lyrically exploring the lighter side of human existence, growing from the darkest experiences people endure. All this facilitating an escape from negative thoughts showing people that they can embrace and love themselves. Creating a family and an atmosphere where you can completely loose yourself, giving people hope.
The 12-tracks of Guided are a musical exploration and a refinement of the band’s journey so far, filled with the energy of their live performance, raw heaviness, and the soaring melodic sing-along hooks that the band has gained notoriety for. Lyrically, it is an expression of the positive elements of our dark psyche and the trials that we all eventually have to endure.
Featuring the likes of Ryan Kirby of Fit For a King and Scott Kennedy of Bleed From Within, the band have formed bonds with other musicians that share their values of hard work, honesty, positivity, and faith.
With Guided, Confessions Of A Traitor intend to spread the message of belief and self-worth, and leave the listener knowing that there will always be hope.
This is truly “Aggressive Music for Positive People”!

This album is one of near perfect production throughout and thoughtfully written lyrics. “Guided” sets the bar high for metal in general and I am excited to see their future endeavors. If I could rate higher than a 10 for songwriting I would! 10’s all around for these guys they earned it …read more
Guided is een mooi vervolg op de EP Illuminate en laat horen dat COAT een sterke speller is in metalcoreland. Niet alleen is het muzikaal sterk neergezet, ook de maatschappelijk kritische teksten laten horen dat we hier met een volwassen band te maken hebben …read more
Guided is a record that remains particularly solid throughout its run-time. Breakdowns, punishing rhythms, and violent vocals – this is a metalcore tick box of a record that finally shows that this band are capable of potentially being a difference maker in their landscape …read more
