RAZOR
RAZOR
Live! Osaka Saikou
(Rock Stakk Records)
62:11min

Speed Metal is alive and doing good, at least when legendary RAZOR is kicking it on stage - the old geezers still have what it takes to take on nowadays Metal scene and tear it a new asshole. Not many new bands are delivering as much intensity on stage as the Canadians. The band has been a bit on and off the last 20-25 years, they did a new album in 2007, though that one didn't really latch on with me, though their discography from 1991 and backwards, damn, Speed Metal frenzy, such music makes old people pogo and headbang. If you want to become convinced thrown on 'Speed Merchants' from the album "Evil Invaders" from 1985, Speed Metal in its purest form. The band is carried by the dynamic duo bassist Mike Campagnolo and guitarist Dave Carlo, even though they also have been a bit in and out of the band, in the past, though now they are shredding and pounding the strings, the best they've learned. On top of that we have vocalist Bob Reid who has been in the band since 1989, and he is still doing a good job, and I actually like him singing the songs before "Shotgun Justice" from '90, which were the first album he appeared on. Though I still miss Stace "Sheepdog" McLaren once in a while, the vocalist from the albums prior to Reid entering, he had some killer vocals as well. Though enough nostalgia, even though it is hard not to get a tad nostalgic when listening to music as this, which had its heyday in the 80s, but damn it is impressive how it still is holding up its own. If you are into RAZOR this is a sure buy, if you never have heard about the band, which ain't good, or just have heard the name and want a place to start, this is it. All the good old classics, delivered really intense and with more energy and punch than you could imagine, and then the recording is quite spotless and polished with good dynamics, so don't be affraid of yet a suspect sounding live recording. Now go get ravaged by RAZOR or you'll get the brass knuckles! More info at: www.facebook.com/razorthrashband, www.rockstakk.com
