Razor to Oblivion

Rated 3.83/5 (76.67%) (6 Votes)

This is the debut EP from another US band who are taking a cue from proto-thrash bands like Celtic Frost along with a pinch of death rock, reminding me a lot of mid-period Entombed like Hollowman. I thought I would hate this when I saw it billed as 'crossover', but really this is a rather entertaining little disc with a lot of energy and aggression. The vocals are a bit 'coreish, which is annoying, but the guitar sound is strong, and the riffs are solid. I don't really think this band will create anything good out of their influences in the future, as they are clearly enamored of noise rock and punk a bit too much, but this EP is fun.
