Razor To Release First Album In 25 Years

Canadian thrash metal legends, Razor, return with "Cycle Of Contempt," their first new full-length album in 25 years! "Cycle Of Contempt" is a direct, cutthroat record that pulls no punches and takes no prisoners. Watch Razor’s lyric video for the new song, "Flames Of Hatred," below.

"We are so psyched to finally offer this recording to our awesome and patient fanbase! It was our pleasure to make this for you and we sincerely hope you feel it was worth the wait. Play it loud my friends!" - Dave Carlo, Razor guitarist

Anyone that cut their metal teeth with The Big Four, and then dug a little deeper into the indie scene, should receive a major endorphin rush when they discover that speed and thrash masters Razor are about to release their first studio offering in 25 years, entitled "Cycle Of Contempt."

From the catchy, concise riffs and insistent beats of album opener "Flames Of Hatred" to the double-barreled assault, muted power chord chugging and combative gang vocal of album closer "King Shit," "Cycle Of Contempt" is a trenchant reminder of a time when clubs around the world were packed with long-haired bands that played as fast as they could to mosh pits that spun and tumbled like clothes in a short-circuiting dryer.
