How bad can mixing Punk with Thrash Metal be when you get such often used musical terminology as Crossover out of it? Crossover, or Thrashcore or, is a great thing when played right and most importantly, convincing as hell. These French wreckers of your neighborhood's most lovely pub, named Verbal Razors, are such a band that can easily wreck your house or even favorite pub if the owner invites 'em in to do some of their Crossover magic.

Misleading Innocence is the band's second album, which manages to remind us of such names as Ludichrist, Excel, The Exploited, M.O.D., Verbal Abuse and Crumbsuckers but with more Thrash Metal elements injected into their songs, with some of Motörhead's pure Rock 'n' Roll attitude thrown in. Verbal Razors sound fresh, energetic and rebellious throughout this album that clocks in at less than 24 minutes and there's much to be loved in their sound, which reeks of those good old 80s days when the underground scene was breeding and bringing a vast number of killer bands out to the daylight.

Verbal Razors are clearly the messengers of those past jolly good 80s days; the era when the Crossover scene really peaked strongly and also died out way too soon. If you were ever a fan of the Crossover-Thrash movement, then this is something for you.
