"Local artist Eve Hell is comfortable enough in the staying power of her outfit Eve Hell and the Razors that she has no qualms spitting in the eye of the gods and celebrating a fairly major milestone this weekend with a Saturday night show at Dickens. The reason? Ten years as an entity on the Calgary rock scene, surviving lineup changes, musical evolutions and shifting tastes and fashions." “The whole deal was trying to put 10 pounds of music in a five-pound bag and just use as many influences as possible.” That hasn’t always been to the advantage of the band, with Hell admitting that by branching out and straying from the straight-up rockabilly sound it tweaked some of the purists who are proud and protective of the music and its lifestyle." Calgary Herald.

“.... Eve Hell and the Razors are here to save the day, no wait, the country. If Disneyland were to change the format of the Haunted House to a spaghetti western for the undead, Eve Hell and the Razors should be the house band! This CD is chock full of great songs- originals and covers, all done so well, I'll say it loud and proud that I'm a fan of a band from Canada ... eh. The production of the record is truly great, all the instruments are clear and loud, the vocals are up front and not overbearing; just a quality release anyway you cut it...."”
“Eve Hell and the Razors- When The Lights Go Out ...Another astonishing discovery is Mike Hell’s guitar playing. Tempered and smooth at times, he soon breaks the holding pattern shooting off a flurry of notes then gripping raw riffs and riding them out. Hell posses a serious ‘50’s tonality and a ruthless conviction to the Gretsch greats that easily slots him somewhere between Eddie Cochrane and Reverend Horton Heat.”
“...I don't feel that the CD was put together just to say "Hey, here's who we are and this is what we sound like". Somehow, from the first song on, I felt like I was pulled into your world and was attending an experience if you will. It was more of a "happening" that I was invited to rather than pulling a chair up to a table to listen to some band. Unlike a concert where people tend to stand and stare at the stage, I felt as if I was invited to a private function by some very close friends. A very loose and relaxed feeling mated with some very cool and refreshing songs. In fact all of the songs are being placed into our playlist for regular rotation on Rocket 88 FM. Our claim to being "The Best Station Out There" is because we feel that we play the best music out there. Adding your music helps us justify our claim. So thanks again Eve Hell and the Razors for putting your Rockability into Rockabilly! The RocketMan http://rocket88.8m.com ”
“(clip) Since then, the band has been making a name for itself in the world of rockabilly by taking the core values of the genre. Yet their songs possess a musical intelligence that many others of their ilk fail to find. (Clip) Please click link or visit www.evehellandtherazors.com for the full article.”
