Artist/Band: Ryo Fujimura (& The Betrayed)
Members: Ryo Fujimura (Vocal, Guitar), HIROA (Lead Guitar), Pippi (Bass) Syu (G.L.A.M.S/The Betrayed, ex. Dio ~Distraught Overlord~) (Drums)
Ryo Fujimura entered the music scene through “AciD FLavoR”, a band he started himself in 1999. In 2006 he debuted as the 7-strings guitarist and leader of the band through EMI in Japan, and remained in that position until the band eventually disbanded in 2010.
After the disbanding Ryo has been focusing on his solo career, but has also been writing songs for various other Japanese artists along the side. Many live shows followed, including overseas like various countries in Europe and Latin America.
In 2020 he decided it was time for a new project, and with the help of Syu (G.L.A.M.S, ex. BLACK LINE, ex. Dio ~Distraught Overlord~) he formed “The Betrayed”.
In February of 2020 the band played a live show, and released an EP with “bootleg” songs from this show in June. Shortly after they released two more EP’s containing an in-studio acoustic set.
The very first EP, “Crying with One Eye” was released in November, followed by the second EP “Proud of your color” in April of 2021.
