Why we spent the weekend listening to RAZOR’S NEW ALBUM ‘CYCLE OF CONTEMPT’
Canadian thrash metal legends RAZOR return with ‘Cycle of Contempt’, their first new full-length album in 25 years, out now on LP/CD/CS/Digital! Here is why we spent the weekend listening to ‘Cycle of Contempt.
It’s 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.
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.
The “Flames of Hatred” official lyric video is really cool too:
