Biography[edit]

Mortal Treason was founded in Hartselle, Alabama and released two albums under Flicker Records. Their first album was titled A Call to the Martyrs and had more of a traditional metalcore style. Their second album was titled Sunrise Over a Sea of Blood, which contained elements of death metal. Members of the band said that they believed "God has something else planned for us", but there were also rumors of label problems. On September 11, 2005 Seth Kimbrough officially announced their disestablishment.

Seth Kimbrough announced in a MySpace bulletin that he is currently playing in a new death metal band called Misery Chastain. After leaving Mortal Treason, TJ Alford headed to the metalcore band War of Ages. When Steve Robinson left, he decided to join the band Materia Medica, although the band has of late split-up and their website and MySpace page have been abandoned and possibly vandalised. Adam Wright joined the worship band The Glorious Unseen and released one album entitled Tonight the Stars Speak.

The band was part of The Rise of the Robots Tour alongside notable bands such as The Showdown and Staple.[2]

Seth Kimbrough is an X-Games BMX rider,[3] and has appeared as a playable character on Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2.[4]

Possible reunion[edit]

Mortal Treason was rumored to be playing at Cornerstone '06 but this was false. On the band's MySpace page, they announced that they will not be playing due to the difficulty of getting all the members together.

Although Mortal Treason did not show up for the Cornerstone '06 concert, they had a band reunion show in Tennessee.

Return[edit]

On Monday, December 8, 2014, Mortal Treason created facebook page, announcing its return, with the original lineup.[5]
