5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best HXC records of the decade 29 April 2007
Format:Audio CD
Up there with "Background Music" as one of the records shaping what Hardcore is today. More old-school than American Nightmare, Champion channel the energy of Gorilla Biscuits and make it their own.

Awesome release. If you claim to love Hardcore, you NEED this record.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intro to hardcore for the uniniatiated 23 Sep 2004
By Frankenchrist - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Bridge Nine records out of Boston, Ma are quickly becoming the face of hardcore and it is further proven with CHAMPION'S most current release, "Promises Kept." This record represented straight edge hardcore in it's most pristine form with hostile gang styled choruses and a pace that switches back and forth from the super fast to the rhythmic. One of the most important components of hardcore is found in a vocal style that doesn't burn your ears with screeching but instead, commands your consideration through anger-ridden, and at times, frustrated vocals. Although the release felt like it dabbled in the formulaic in terms of hardcore requirements, it still had the jaw dropping power to enthuse even the untailored hardcore fan. In fact, for those who want to begin their pilgrimage into the world of hardcore without relying on the stand-by's like MINOR THREAT and the like, you could benefit from listening to this record. Their stripped down style is reminiscent of when hardcore was just beginning to gain notoriety but with the precision of music that is more contemporary. There are no posers in this band, that's for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who said it best? Brodie Holman did. 29 Dec 2004
By Greg Edge - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I couldn't agree more with Brodie Holman. Champions stripped down breed of hardcore brings to the table something that even the most unenthusiastic listen can appreciate. With obvious influences like Gorilla Biscuits, Reach the Sky and Youth of Today, and enough emotion to show that hardcore still has heart, and Straight Edge still means something, Champion has succeeded yet again. 'Promises Kept' picks up the pace. The contrast between the fast parts, and slow grooves, accompanied by bombastic gang vocals definitely keep the listening audience interested. If you are a fan of straight up hardcore, 'Promises Kept' IS your next purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALONE IN A CROWD!!! 10 May 2005
By Greg Steve - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Champion is easily one of the best punk-influenced hardcore bands out there today. You dont have to be straightedge to appreciate the build-up and explosion of the opening track, "Promises Kept" or any of the following 11 songs. It's short, about 22 minutes, but flawless, with many gang vocals, empowering lyrics, and a genuine raw power. Personally, I think its better than Comeback Kid, but whatever, Champion brings the goods so make sure to check it out.

Best Songs: Looking Back, Miles to Go, The Decline, Every Word

i love champion and i have been looking for this cd for a long time and i find it on here for about 8 dollers used. The cd is in very poor shape every song skips at one point or another.
4.0 out of 5 stars good 27 July 2006
By JC Santos - Published on
Format:Audio CD
while trial and brotherhood are both solid hxc veterans, champion has earned their position as one of the major powerhouses in hardcore. no need to bash a sincere hardcore band (check out their lyrics if you ever get around to it). they just recently broke up and it was nowhere near a silent break. i know the kids in seattle had fun at the last show. count our numbers and come out swinging are better albums than this release, but promises kept is not terrible either. you're into true hardcore, you know what hardcore is about...if you met those two standards, you'll like promises kept.
