Homage To Martyrs
Razor of Occam Reveal Cover Art For 'Homage To Martyrs'
January 24, 2009
London-based Australian black/thrash horde, Razor Of Occam, have just revealed the covert art for their upcoming new album, 'Homage to Martyrs'. The cover art and layout was done by Aurelien Police (www.aurelienpolice.com).

'Homage to Martyrs' was recorded at Necromorbus studios in Sweden (Watain, Aversa Sefira, Mörk Gryning) and produced by Tore Stjerna. What you’ll hear on 'Homage to Martyrs' is the perfect amalgamation of raw black metal and the thrash intensity of Slayer’s 'Reign In Blood'. It’s as raw, relentless and intense as it can get!

Check out the opening track, "Altar Of Corruption", at this location.

'Homage to Martyrs' track listing:
1. Altar Of Corruption
2. Bite Of Dogmata
3. Day Of Wrath
4. Heat Of Battle
5. Immortal Code
6. Pattern On The Stone
7. Flame Bearers
8. Shadow Of The Cross

'Homage To Martyrs' will be released March 17th, 2009 via Metal Blade.

Metal Blade Signs Razor Of Occam
December 6, 2008
Metal Blade Records is happy to announce the signing of Razor Of Occam for a multiple, worldwide record deal!

Razor Of Occam is a metal band in the black/thrash genre based in London, UK including half of the Destroyer 666 line-up and members of Adorior. Originally spawned from the south Australian desert in the late nineties, the music of Razor Of Occam still emulates the harshness of its birthplace. Never content to follow the mainstream, the lyrics eschew the mystical nonsense typical of the genre and instead highlight the harsh reality of the godless, uncaring and awe-inspiring universe we inhabit.

The band has two releases to date. 'Diabologue' (Damnation Records) and 'Pillars of Creation' (Circle of Tyrants). They have recently finished the recordings for their third release, a full-length album titled 'Homage To Martyrs' to be released via Metal Blade Records in the spring of 2009!

Razor Of Occam has predominately been a self-reliant act, securing gigs, festivals and tours in the UK, Europe and their homeland. They have played alongside renowned acts such as Asphyx, Primordial and Dismember, including a European tour with Gospel of the Horns.

Comments the band on the deal: "The Metal Blade back catalogue speaks for itself. We can only hope to be deemed worthy of sitting alongside such illustrious names."

More details, including the track listing, and a brand new MP3 from 'Homage To Martyrs' will be announced and uploaded shortly!
