"Doomsday" is a short zombie-flick with strong Israeli and Jewish motifs, promoting "Freedom to the Slave Makers". It was written and directed by BETZEFER frontman Avital Tamir's filmmaker group, the Bong Bros., initially as part of their upcoming feature film "A Land Flowing". The band's heavy involvement in the production, from contributing a song by the same name, "Doomsday", to the soundtrack, to guitarist Matan Cohen-Grumi doing post-production, led to the band using the film as a teaser for their upcoming CD.
Shortly after completing work on "Freedom To The Slave Makers", the band's most aspiring effort to date, BETZEFER was booked to play the main stage of the Ozzfest festival in Tel-Aviv alongside OZZY OSBOURNE and KORN.
BETZEFER's debut album, "Down Low", was released in 2005 via Roadrunner Records. The band's energetic brand of metal was previously described as a mixture of SEPULTURA and PANTERA and was said to be "packed with aggression."
Prior to issuing "Down Low" through Roadrunner, BETZEFER released three EPs: "Pitz Aachbar" (2000),"Some Tits, But No Bush" (2001) and "New Hate" (2003).
