This winter, Boston thrashers Razormaze will be embarking on an east coast tour and recording a second full-length album. The album will be recorded by Pete Rutcho (Revocation, Ravage, Frozen) and will feature 8 tracks of all new material.
It has been almost 2 years since the band’s last effort, "Miseries." “We keep trying to one up ourselves with each release. The writing for this album took quite a while and we think it’ll show,” says the band's vocalist and rhythm guitarist Alex Citrone “we’re very proud of what we’ve got and we can’t wait to get it out there. Overall it’s definitely more aggressive, heavier and more technical. We’ll be playing all of it on the tour.”

Hold True Recordings has announced the addition of Boston thrash-metal warriors RAZORMAZE into its family. Hold True Recordings already has the band on track to release an EP entitled "Dawn of the Shred" in early 2009, featuring artwork by Halseycaust (Toxic Holocaust, War Ripper), and the band will be embarking on a Dawn of the Shred Tour in early 2009 in support of the forthcoming effort (dates are listed below).
For those unfamiliar with RAZORMAZE, the quartet draws from the tried and true influences of the glory days of thrash, bonding together technical, yet melodic riffing and leads, lightning fast drumming, and vocals that sound like a dive-bomber coming in for a kill. According to the label, RAZORMAZE and their brand of unwavering metal will surely appeal to fans of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Razor, Black Flag, Millions of Dead Cops, Nuclear Assault, Testament, and Dew Scented.
With regards to the band being welcomed into the Hold True Recordings family, the band had the following to say: "We believe that our relationship with Hold True will allow us to take our music career to the next level. With their reputation and promotional ability, we will undoubtedly reach a great number of new fans and connect with the ones we've already made in a new and unimpeded way. Needless to say, we are totally stoked to become a part of the Hold True family."
