Razor Punch - Tell me your Secret

Razor Punch
Tell me your Secret
by "Metal Mark" Garcia at 23 August 2019, 6:18 AM

Since some years, Germany has become a warehouse for Rock ‘n’ Roll and Hard Rock bands, all of them sharing the same DNA that ACCEPT, HELLOWEEN, RUNNING WILD, RAGE and others have, but with a strange feature: they use the German in the lyrics, and it makes everything hard for fans from outside of Europe to get what they’re trying to say. But there are some that seems to be breaking this rule, bands as RAZOR PUNCH. And “Tell Me Your Secret” is really a very good album.

They’re into a dirty Hard Rock/crude Rock ‘n’ Roll way, and their work has some doses of weight that are really good. Their music can barely be compared do AC/DC or TWISTED SISTER. Let’s say that is filled with a crude energy and based on hooking melodies, great choruses and with an instrumental work that isn’t excessively technical, because it’s not their focus. But it’s amazing that their music can be catchy! The sound quality was conceived to be clean and with defined instrumental tunes, but allowing the band to play aggressive and nasty at the same time. It’s not so easy to do such a thing, but it’s presented on this album.

Musically, the whole album is a fine piece of fun made music. But no one will stay in the same place as “Love It or Leave It” (a locomotive of the purest Rock ‘n’ Roll energy, driven by strong guitar riffs), the melodic charm of “Falling Forever” and “Brass Tacks” (this one has a solid and very good work on bass guitar and drums), the musical blow that will smash many earns heard on “Take the Ride”, the accessible touches on the melodies of “Can’t Get Over It” (even bearing a load of dirty aggressiveness that is really amazing) and “Devil’s Game” are playing. It’s a massive call to Rock ‘n’ Roll riot!

Yes, it’s just their first album, but RAZOR PUNCH shows that they’re on the right path with “Tell Me Your Secret”.
