Razor Of Occam Signs To Metal Blade

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of RAZOR OF OCCAM for a multiple Worldwide record deal.

RAZOR OF OCCAM is a metal band in the black/thrash genre based in London, UK including half of the Destroyer 666 line-up and members of Adorior. Originally spawned from the South Australian desert in the late nineties, the music of RAZOR OF OCCAM still emulates the harshness of its birthplace. Never content to follow the mainstream, the lyrics eschew the mystical nonsense typical of the genre and instead highlight the harsh reality of the godless, uncaring and awe-inspiring universe we inhabit.

The band has two releases to date, "Diabologue" (Damnation Records) and "Pillars of Creation" (Circle of Tyrants). They have recently finished the recordings for their third release, a full-length album titled "Homage To Martyrs" to be released via Metal Blade Records in the spring of 2009.

RAZOR OF OCCAM has predominately been a self-reliant act, securing gigs, festivals and tours in the UK, Europe and their homeland. They have played along side renowned acts such as Asphyx, Primordial and Dismember, including a European tour with Gospel of the Horns.

Comments the band on the deal: "The Metal Blade back catalogue speaks for itself. We can only hope to be deemed worthy of sitting alongside such illustrious names."

More details, the tracklisting, and a brand new MP3 from "Homage To Martyrs" will be announced and uploaded shortly. In the meantime, you can check the band out on their MySpace page.

Destroyer 666 To Tour Europle, Release New Tracks

Frontman K.K. Warslut of Australian black/death/thrash metallers DESTROYER 666 has posted the following message on the band's official website:

"Our hounour and respect to all those who have supported the band over the last few years. Finally a new site to clarify the rumours, statiate the curious and enthrall the devout. First off, Id like to thank and send Hails to our new webmaster L.Kaos.

Since 2004 D666 has a new bass player. Almost human Matt, (part) man behind London based Razor of Occam

We can announce that D666 will probably tour next April. We are hoping to organize a European tour along with REVENGE.

Im also working on getting D666 to Sth America. So I urge all the Sth American maniacs to send your death threats to Mutliation Records.

D666 has given permission to Hells HeadBangers label to release, later this year, the Pic. Disc version of "Cold Steel...for an Iron Age" It will come with a new revised cover, and will also come with a jacket/sleeve featuring different artwork again. This is off course important for the band. As the unsolicited artwork from the previously released CD/LP S.O.M version still ranks as one of the worst attempts at record cover design ever attempted.

This new version will feature an extra track form the "Cold Steel..." session entitled "The Dragon" and will also feature alternate versions of "The Calling" and "The Fall of Shadows".

We are currently working on a LP, featuring all D666 7" tracks. As well as 2 unreleased tracks which were originally recorded Oct.2003 as 7" to commerate that years aussie tour. Alas, I remained unsatisfied with the vocals, and the songs sat around forgotten till recently. We hope this will be of benefit for those still tormenting (me) for copies of the 7"s.
May be released Jan 2006. "
