Stephen Hawking explains in “A Brief History of Tim”e: “We could still imagine that there is a set of laws that determines events completely for some supernatural being, who could observe the present state of the universe without disturbing it. However, such models of the universe are not of much interest to us mortals. It seems better to employ the principle known as Occam’s razor and cut out all the features of the theory which cannot be observed.”. Apart from this prelude, RAZOR OF OCCAM is an Australian Black Metal band as well. When I say these magical words combined, one should figure out what kind of incredible bands Australia has blessed us with in this genre in the past. Australia stands to Black Metal like Brazil is recently standing for Death Metal. They’re TRUE Black Metal in a world jam-packed of posers. Bands with such a intense, intellectual, frighteningly violent approach to music such has DESTROYER 666, BESTIAL WARLUST or SADISTIK EXECUTION just are the pinpoint of the whole great Black Metal scene there. While Scandinavia black metal lost all its shine in the last eight years, Australian bands like this make me feel things are improving for this music. I am a complete freak about Australian Black metal and RAZOR OF OCCAM are a fucking dazzling example of unbridled ferocity the way only these bands are able to express. They’re fast as fuck and have not a single chop of useless melody. Violence in its peak of expression, simple, straightforward, obsessive guitar work crowned by a perfect crude sound. Too bad it’s just 2 songs. It is limited to 500 copies so feel lucky if you get one. Oh I’ll skip to discuss the packaging because the cover is one of the worst I have ever seen inside of one of the worst layouts ever. Don’t get mislead by this.
