The story of TRAITOR begins in 2009, when after various fun projects of the individual band members finally nails with heads are made. In the same year, two demos are released. "Thrash Metal Victory" and "Inclination To Aggression", which reap pretty fat laurels in the underground, so the direction is right. After another test balloon in terms of demo ("Nuclear Combat", 2010), the first full album is tackled. The Balinger thresh their debut, which deserves the name "Thrash Command" honestly.

Located in the intersection of Bay Area and German Thrash, the vocally reminiscent of the young Mille Petrozza, singing drummer Andreas Mozer and his guys let rise a riff fireworks fired as if from a Zimmerflak.

At the end of 2013, Matthias Koch, a new guitarist, joined the band and gave the guys a good kick in the butt, as bassist Lorenz Kandolf reports: "Matthias is more technical than his predecessor but, like us, loves old school thrash. We already had some songs ready, but his standard line was: this has to be more brutal."
