Razor  


Razor made some noise in the mid-eighties with a string of albums displaying a strong Slayer-esque vibe, and were for a time one of Canada's best known thrash bands. They managed a reasonable following but never quite made the major leagues, finally disbanding in 1992 and then reforming several years later. Since then, one album has been released (1997's Decibels) and they are still active as of this writing, though for various health reasons they only occasionally play live and do not appear to have any future recording plans.
