Betrayed’s irrefutable hardcore stance stems from the fact that this straight-edge crew’s members are not your typical idealistic teens, but 30 year-old men from established scene acts Champion and Carry On. It’s this level of commitment and dedication that shines through the quartet’s six-track release ADDICTION in both musical output and lyrical content, as tracks like “A Light in the Dark” contains the buoyancy of the youth crew group of the days gone by with the sage-like wisdom of eyes that have seen all sides of the spectrum. Uplifting yet not overly preachy, Betrayed’s lifestyle choice may not be for everyone, but their energetic display of melodic hardcore is way harder to ignore, especially if you dig Sick of it All or Comeback Kid.
