The Aram Connection

I bought some more records from Aram. He posted a list of Champion and Betrayed records on the Livewire Records messageboard, and when I saw that he was selling a copy of the Euro tour pressing of Promises Kept, I jumped on it. Nothing too special about the pressing, just grey vinyl with blank, white labels, made for their European tour. Still, I've found this pressing rather difficult to find. The couple of times that I've seen it on eBay, it went for more than I was ready to spend. Getting this pressing finishes my Promises Kept collection.
Another record that he set aside for me was the Betrayed last show pressing of the Champion/Betrayed split 7". I can't remember how many were pressed of this record, but mine is #183. As a cool little bonus, Aram also threw in a couple of laminated tour passes from the Australian and Japan tours.
Two of the best bands from the past few years.

I hope Aram will start another band as a vocalist, Betrayed were awesome.
Though I had higher expectations of the full length, maybe to high.

I had higher expectations for the LP as well, it was a little too polished, and I was a little let down upon first listen. But the more I listened to it, the more I liked it.

It's too polished + it doesn't have enough new songs on it.

I am grateful though that I had the chance to see this band at least one time.

Have you read the Betrayed interview on my blog?
