Betrayed - "Champion / BTD Split" (RVL016)

This split E.P. combines 3 brand new exclusive songs from one of hardcore's most recognized bands, CHAMPION, with 3 new songs from one of hardcore's most exciting new bands, BETRAYED (featuring 2 members of CHAMPION and 2 members of CARRY ON). Both bands play fast, yet melodic hardcore in the vein of CHAIN OF STRENGTH and CARRY ON, though both bands complement each other with different departures from the same traditional sound. CHAMPION's style is most definitely rooted in late 1980's hardcore with added melodic flavor, similar to that of TURNING POINT, while BETRAYED has defined their sound somewhere between the aforementioned bands and seminal D.C. hardcore punk legends MINOR THREAT and EMBRACE. This E.P. represents the next chapter in the lives of both of these bands, with an overwhelming message of taking control and making the most of your life.

  Onesheet RVL016

"...This CD has 12 tracks in my stereo because I always listen to it twice. " More >>

"...The third and final song, Bring It To Life is one of the catchiest songs I have ever HEARD. I have probably listened to this song 30 times in the 3 days I’ve had this CD...This has plenty of replay value, more than enough for you to go out and purchase it." More >>

"...If you liked anything they (Champion) have done previously you should buy this split solely to hear these songs." More >>

"...not only do you receive the final songs from Champion, but you’ll also get the songs that could very well launch Betrayed into the upper tier of hardcore punk..." More >>

"...If you’re starting to take an interest in hardcore punk, make sure you pick this split EP up as soon as possible because it has two of the most amazing bands the hardcore scene has ever heard." More >>

"This is the perfect way for Champion to end it all and the perfect way for Betrayed to arrive...this is the way that hardcore splits should be. It is filled with history and the future. It has two bands with common ties but with completely different sounds. Could it get better than this? Excellence at its best." More >>

"CHAMPION kick this disc off...“Break Through” is one of the greatest songs the band has written to date." More >>

"...It seems like Todd Jones (Terror, Internal Affairs, Carry On, etc.) has the hardcore Midas Touch and Betrayed is his latest triumph...this is one of the first essential hardcore releases I've heard in quite a while." More >>
