Razer, working alongside 116 Productions producers Chuck Alkazian and Matt Novesky, has recently released their latest full-length effort "Dark Devotion". Bassist Chris Catero, guitarist Paul Sullivan and drummer Eric Bongiorno -- formerly of Metal Blade Records artist Wardog -- solidified Razer with the addition of guitarist Jeromy Graves and the commanding vocals of frontman Chris Powers. Their songs are a combination of muscular and heavy riffs, tight arrangements, evolved musical playing and true pop sensibilities, making for a unique blend that appeals to both the average radio listener and the most avid pit
The band's heavy sound, a combination of exceptionally strong songwriting and Power's powerhouse vocals, has garnered attention nationwide, resulting in Powers being selected by "Guitar Hero" video game song producer Steve Ouimette to sing on the ending track "The Devil
Went Down To Georgia" on "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock". Their single "Superpaun" was featured in Disc Maker's instructional DVD "Achieving Success with Your Music: Hard-Hitting Tips on Marketing, A&R, Record Labels and Increasing the Income You Make with Music". Razer has
also been featured in Guitar World Magazine's "Introducing" column as well as being the unsigned artist of the month in Japan's prestigious Burrn! Magazine.
Bassist Catero also serves as touring bassist for legendary guitar god Marty Friedman of Megadeth as well as being the head of artist relations and domestic sales for international guitar amp manufacturer Krank Amplification, touting such acts as Metallica, Fall Out Boy, Toby
Keith, Yellowcard, Queensryche, and others as endorsers/users.
