‘Cycle Of Contempt’ out September 23 on Relapse Records. Share ‘Flames Of Hatred’ lyric video.

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 official lyric video for ‘Flames Of Hatred’:

“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’, album 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 and 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’, LP showcases a band that never stopped spewing venom.
