High As Hell - Razorblade Dream

 

It's always good to be handed a record that is decidedly just 'heavy metal.' Such is the case with the powerful grooves and yarling swagger of the debut album from High As Hell. Razorblade Dream is a straightforward and punishingly effective offering talking about all that is fascinating and potent in the world of underground metal. Razorblade Dream fascinates because of its ability to fuse chunky grooves with classic vibes and bluesy playing. It makes for a delightful listen that reflects the strength of the Aussie scene.

I think what gets me about Razorblade Dream is the bands very real sense of charisma. There is a potency and breadth to the sound that makes it a wonderfully compelling offering. Tracks like 'Dying On Lonely Street' feature extended jams, but rather than coming off as contrived or boring, they actually make sense in context. This is a group of guys who love playing heavy music together and it's a pleasure to get lost in the waves of sound they unfold. High As Hell aren't here to impress you with weird poetic frills or sublime poetry. They just want to play big riffs and keep listeners obsessed with a sound that is classic for a reason. 

So yes - High As Hell are not really breaking new ground here, but their unique blend of influences ranging from titans like Sabbath and Metallica to more unexpected grunge acts makes for a refreshing and fun approach. Open throated and served with a snarl, Razorblade Dream is a fun debut album, and one that acts as a fitting declaration of war from a band who seek to go first from Victoria, Australia and then on to the rest of the world. Razorblade Dream are a blast to listen too - and what's not to love? It may be simple, but you can't beat classic.
