About:: This song initially contains acoustic guitar and gentle vocals. The music it starts to build up from the gentle intro with electric guitar, bass guitar and drums in the verse to a dramatic and powerful chorus. This music should definitely appeal to "Indie rock" fans everywhere. |||| Influences:: This is a song that has touches of the music of Radiohead and Pink Floyd this song should have wide appeal.
This song contains Electric Guitar & Acoustic guitars, (both 6 string and 12 string variety). The music is infused with war siren keyboards, as well as arpeggio piano runs. It is in the style of an arabesque rock. The song is driven by insistent throbbing bass guitar riffs and all transported by dynamic drums by a rhythmic, tasteful and powerful drummer. This song evokes far away lands, ancient as well as modern times. It speaks of forbidden mystical love, the multitude of obstacles for its hero; it echoes the futility of wars and its location is in the deep desert among the sand dunes. It talks of the human condition and the ephemeral nature of human existence. It hints at recent wars, current wars and of battles yet to come. It talks of the cosmic evil that infects mans psyche and leads him in droves to his ultimate destruction. This song should definitely appeal to Indie rock music fans everywhere. Though this has mainstream appeal this song is unusual with its middle east rhythms and tones merged with western rock and pop music.
During 2008 Velvet Razor went in to W.S.C studios in Bury St Edmunds located in Suffolk to lay down some new tracks in a great studio there. The tracks were “Victims of Love”, “The Shimmering sun” and “Dancing Fires” (this track was live debuted at Guilfest 2005). The sessions were recorded by the 'A' team (3 enthusiastic audio engineers (Nic, Smee, Steve all lead by Thom King). The studio engineers were impressed on how few takes it took to record the songs with perfect takes. This was the first time that Velvet Razor had produced themselves and the results were quite gratifying. The band stayed in a great Bed & Breakfast - The White Horse located in Risby, the landlord - John Madley was a great bloke and a fellow muso, so we all had a good chin wag.
The track is only available as part of the Velvet Razor Debut CD - The Day the Earth Rocked Click the image below to go and buy yours.
This is a medieval acoustic rock rock piece with alternate tuning guitars,mandolin, medieval style drumming and harmony vocals. Complete with Zepplinesque overtones I wrote this song while working in the USA for six months.It's strange that I should go that far away to write a traditional English style Medieval Folk song. Maybe there was a subliminal yearning for the country of my birth. Something about the medieval, celtic and norse times resonate with me stories by the camp fire, legends and verse captured in song about great heroes, quests, fair lady, dark evil enemies dragons and other mythological creatures Here is the sample (1-minute) MP3 of "All for the love of a fool"
This is a song that has touches of the music of Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull this song should appeal to classic rock, folk rock and folk fans.
Only available on the Razor's Edge EP click the image below to go to the item.
This song is in the classic rock style, it is music with an incessant driving and hypnotic rhythm, music that conjures overtones of "The Doors". Breathy deep vocals that mourn for lost love, with Ray Manzarek of The Doors Style keyboards a persistent blues guitar riff that works its way deep into your brain. Tension building drumming that releases in the climatic choruses. "You don't care" wears it's 60's/70's badge with pride.

Red Hot Chili Peppers , Hothouse_Flowers, Hothouse_FlowersDel Amitri,with perhaps a nod to 60s psychedelia à la Small faces and the menace of Manic Street Preachers, his is irresistible listening. Great to hear original quality material from a live gigging band." Editor @ Lemonrock .co .uk
