Another Dimension


This band, believe it or not, used to be called "Gaywire" before they came to their fucking senses and switched to Razorwyre, which while plenty stupid, at least isn't. . . well, you know. Anyway, there are plenty of bands with embarrassing names (Vulvagun, Lechery) who manage to rock anyway, and these guys do it well.

This is just a big, loud, fun album of classic metal. This disc is blaring NWOBHM riffs, melodic leads, catchy choruses and a general vibe of rocking, throw-the-horns gusto that never lets up. Razorwyre are not a serious band - they never really try to seem like one - but they kick ass and they keep kicking it. Vocalist "Z Chylde" has quite obvious limitations, and they could do with a better singer, but he attacks the material with energy and confidence. The guitar work here is just a delight, with addictive chugging riffs and some really first-rate lead work. This band is mining a vein Accept pioneered decades ago, but they remembered that this kind of thing is 90% raging guitars and attitude. Worthy.
