Raw talent: Among The Betrayed

Among The Betrayed are a Canadian hard rock/metal act that I was recently introduced to and thought deserved a nod because they rock, plain and simple. No gimmicks here, just heavy music with sweet hooks, from a tight unit with solid groove. Last year saw the release of the band’s EP The Need To Make A Change, a five song effort that showcases what this band is capable of. Currently unsigned, the band produced it with Chris “Hollywood” Holmes (KoRn, Hot Hot Heat, The Veer Union), who was also in charge of mixing and mastering.

The band formed in 2012 so they’re relatively new and from what I’m hearing on the EP ready to set the world ablaze. I’m definitely curious to hear what comes next from these guys. The EP is available for streaming/download via the Bandcamp player below.
