If there’s any band that can incite a circle pit or inspire the kids to raise their fists and mosh till they can
mosh no more, it’s certainly BETRAYED. If there’s any band that plays hardcore from the heart, it’s
definitely BETRAYED, who are newly signed to Equal Vision and are armed with a brand new album, the
fittingly titled Substance. There’s nothing processed, homogenized, over thought, or stale about Substance.
It’s got a pulse, a vibe, and a heart. It favors fiery passion over flash, and substance over style. If there’s
one thing the current hardcore scene is lacking in 2006, it’s a throbbing, beating heart that ignores image
and encourages emotion. Thankfully, BETRAYED are here to inject the scene and the youth of today with
a much-needed shot of loud, fast hardcore.
