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.
