He hails from Vancouver in British Columbia (Canada), Kasey Haze. Shortly after the turn of the millennium he was a member (probably also the founder) of the heavy rock band Hellrazor. The debut album "Feel The Sting" (2006) also dates from this period, at that time still as a quartet. I don't know what happened in the meantime. The next sign of life comes from 2020 with the second album "Hero No More". Obviously, Hellrazor are now a solo project. The sequel "Hanging On By A Thread" was released in September.

PromoThe title track "Hanging On By A Thread" is right at the beginning. You can hear it straight away, the mastermind is a fan of glam rock from the 80s. Not as soft as with various current representatives of this genre, but really rocking. Catchy guitar riffs and melodies, balanced sound. The guitar is obviously the instrument that The Singer feels most comfortable with. The thunder-starting "First Blood" takes the same line. It's maybe a bit harder, but also in the mid-tempo range. The Canadian picks up speed on "Your Love Is So Bad". While “Dominator” is partly real speed rock. There are also ballads in Glam Rock. And of course such a thing is not allowed on an authentic album. Living Tomorrow In Sorrow is just heartbreaking. And a short but brilliant guitar solo makes this my favorite on the album. And so it goes on, sometimes faster ("Me, Myself And I", "Power And Influence"), sometimes more solemn ("Good From Far (Far From Good)", "The Boy That You Once Knew"), glam rock , how you want it.

Certainly, Hellrazor hardly offer anything new. But Kasey Haze revives the golden days of glam rock. And as already said, it is based on the sound of the eighties. And that's exactly what makes "Hanging On By A Thread" so worth listening to. Entertainment music at a high level. - keep-on-rocking

Short Bio: What do you get when you add a table spoon of Judas Priest, half an oz of Def Leppard, a dash of Scorpions and a sprinkle of WASP into a blender? HELLRAZOR. With diving bass, heavy guitars, tight hard-hitting drums, flashy guitar solos, lots of hooks with catchy and melodic four-part harmony vocals, HELLRAZOR delivers the classic old-school era of metal.
