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. As energetic and exciting as “Evil Invaders and as urgent and powerful as RAZOR’s 1989 speed-fest “Violent Restitution, ‘Cycle of Contempt’ showcases a band that never stopped spewing venom. “I tried to write songs that everybody could listen to and say, “Yeah, I know a guy who’s done that to me or done this, or I know that situation. I can relate to that,” band founder Dave Carlo says. “And I didn’t want to make everything specifically about me because when you do that, you exclude people. I wanted to include everyone that’s ever felt pissed off about anything.” An unrelenting slab of old-school thrash that showcases RAZOR’s encyclopedic knowledge of the past along with Carlo’s growth as a songwriter, player, and lyricist, ‘Cycle of Contempt’ is here to show that RAZOR are as dominating as ever.
