“All in all, the plate is quite varied and The Razed lead us through all kinds of different soundscapes , where the sometimes gnarly , sometimes wonderfully fragile and emotional voice of Byrne turns out to be a real plus point . It is expected that The Razed will appeal not only to a purely metal audience. The boys are rather aiming a wide diversification within their (future) Annex. Here you will find many musical ideas, implemented songwriting which is compelling, and at the end of this five straight points. Dennis Fuchs” - Dennis Fuchs, Heavyhard.de (Oct 06, 2013)
For a soundtrack for the midnight hours of romance and smooching, Scandinavian rock bands are seldom responsible. It mostly goes off hard and heavy . This is also true for the trio THE RAZED from Sweden: Paul Byrne (vocals, guitar), Skiddy Jarnvik (bass) and Joe Tyburn (drums) They let their typical rock crash substantially. However the three Gothenburgers put in their debut album (label: The Musical Steam Works) a lot of energy and high pressure amplified rock, but also tuneful riffs and real melodies. This reminds me now and then of bands like Golden Earing. (Translation from German) " - Felix Meyer, LG-SZENE (May 31, 2013)
THE RAZED ALBUM REVIEW May 2013.
Just before the weekend I got to hear the debut album from a band called THE RAZED from Sweden but now resident here in Berlin. The trio has the classic hard rock/rock`n´roll old school flavour. However the mix is really fresh and gets into your skin. Eventually you find yourself smiling and tapping your feet. Whether it´s “ENERGY TRANSFER”, “ ONE FINGER SALUTE” or “BLADERIDER”. It´s fun , dark fun. Listen to these party rock animals. THE RAZED have similarities to Mönchengladbach Hard Rock formation MOTORJESUS or to GUN BARREL from Cologne , But they still have enough originality to stand out as much more than just a copy. In addition the sound is coloured by streaks of THE DOORS, IGGY POP AND THE STOOGES, a little BLUE ÖYSTER CULT and less somber moments of NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS on “ONCE AND FOR ALL”. What an interesting cocktail ! , and not a bad debut album. If you are a fan of catchy, rapid, flaky power rock with lots of groove that runs into your ears, check this out. If it does not rock you, you urgently need a hearing test. (Translation from original German) Michael Toscher FFM-ROCK
