Betrayed – Substance

Betrayed’s first full-length release, Substance, accentuates their hardcore stylings with more than just a tinge of punk attitude and the expected accompanying musical tactics. Substance features a thick wall of distortion (though not a Spector-style Wall of Sound — which would undoubtedly be an interesting addition to the punk and hardcore canon,) those familiar not-quite-screaming vocals (recognizably influenced by veterans Suicidal Tendencies, among countless others,) and a certain amount of flare on the guitar.
