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. That reformation led to one studio album (Decibels, released in 1997), and after that the band has stayed active but only occasionally play live. A 2011 concert was the source of 2016's live album, the last recording of the band.
