Fighting to prevent heavy metal from continuing to decline in quality, originality, spirit, and success. There is NO reason that in an age where crap imposter-core bands like Korn, Slipknot, Disturbed, et al, regularly receive radio play, that a NEW generation of heavy metal bands rooted in the classics (but not seen as lame retro acts) should not be poised to take over and change,the course of history. Razor Fist is on a mission to be the band that galvanizes underground metal/hardcore punk thrashers into action.
Times have changed, but the formula for kick-ass heavy metal tunes has not. It’s just unfortunate that the bands today’s giant labels choose to sell to the public are unfamiliar with that formula(a formula fundamentally the same as the formula for writing great rock/pop tunes). It’s time for true heavy metal fans to demand something better. I bet my life that if 100 people were played a some rap-crap-metal song and then a Razor Fist song, that over 80 percent will state they preferred Razor Fist.
Razor Fist exemplify punk influenced, thrashed-out heavy metal music coupled with top-notch songwriting. Musically and personally. After all, heavy metal is NOT a hobby, it’s a way of life! Aside from trying (for the most part) in vain to save authentic heavy metal and spread the Razor Fist message as far and wide as possible, the various members of Razor Fist are also active in film, voracious readers, music/film historians, and occassional writers. They also enjoy their pets and are loyal, good people (for the most part…haha). They live life as if it were a heavy metal party (described in crowd favorite “Sex, Drugs, And Metal” off of their debut LP “Razor Fist Force”). Razor Fist’s members are always up for supporting and playing gigs with young or newly-formed bands throughout the Midwest. They’re veterans of the underground and attend many shows (clubs, bars, basements) as well as occasionally booking gigs.
Put simply: Razor Fist’s basic interest is Razor Fist!
