Yes! Razorwyre are back with their first full-length release, Another Dimension, a face-melting slab of balls-out speedy heavy metal. No BS, no pretentions, nothing but a good old-fashioned slug fest. Riffs are unleashed in spades, and energy drips from every note. If you enjoyed the Coming Out release I covered a couple of years back then this is everything that EP promised and then some, boasting a lethal injection of vigor which I just didn't think possible.

For every stodgy, stale release that I've endured through the year it's albums like this which I want to blast at full capacity out of the window: "Never mind that crap I had to listen to last week, this is what it's all about, neighbors!" Another Dimension is a load of fun, with each instrument standing out as interesting from the fiery drum performance to the blazing riffs, pummeling bass and the characteristic vocals of "Z Chylde" (who's changed the spelling of his moniker since the last time). To a fly on the wall I'd imagine I'd look like I'm having some sort of fit listening to this album; chopping and changing between air instrument performances, head flailing and bellowing the most opportune vocal lines.

There is little in the way of negatives throughout this release, I guess the band's youthful, hyperactive attitude could put off guys who take themselves seriously, but then they would be missing the point completely. This isn't a release to sit and contemplate the meaning of life to (unless that meaning is listening to metal and drinking beer), this is an album to lose your mind to, and with killer numbers such as "Knights of Fire", "Speedwarrior" and the pummeling "Desert Inferno" it's hard not to. Fans of balls to the walls heavy metal need this album in their lives.
