Pissing Razors Cover Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away” – News

Pissing Razors and Skinlab Frontman Steev Equivel Cover Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away”

Texas-based Pissing Razors are a name synonymous with American groove-metal; albeit one that you might not be as familiar with as you should. Formed in the early ’90s, the band is best known for legendary 1996 album, Psycho Punko Metal Groove, an introduction to their unique blend of metal, punk, and hardcore influences with a healthy dose of heavy metal swagger. In the years since, the band has unleashed five more releases, toured relentlessly, drawn comparisons to (and praise from) acts like Skinlab, Exhorder, Pantera, and Sepultura, and  gone through a constant change of personnel. The 2021 incarnation of the band sees original members Eddy Garcia (drums), and Mat Lynch (guitar), joined by Joe Rodriguez (vocals), and Geo Gomez (bass).
 
The band returns with their latest single and video, “Wasting Away,” a blistering interpretation of the Nailbomb classic, featuring Skinlab frontman Steev Equivel on vocals. Clocking in at just under three minutes, the track is a continuation of the groups raucous experimentation across the landscape of thrash, punk, and metal. Crushing guest vocals courtesy of Equivel are supported by angular, mean-sounding guitars from Lynch, underscored by an explosive performance from rhythm section monsters Gomez and Garcia that hurtles the song forward at breakneck speed. Rodriguez steps up to the plate as THE frontman Pissing Razors fans have been waiting for: Equal parts pissed-off lunatic and menacing vocalist able to inject a special kind of anger into each lyric.
 
 
 
“Shortly after Nailbomb’s 1994 Point Blank release, we added ‘Wasting Away’ to our live set, simply for its sheer intensity, brutally honest approach, and blatant raw attack. There’s no smoke and mirrors, no fancy production tricks there. The track demands attention, commands respect, and we are proud to revisit its place in the early development of our own musical pursuits and sound. The pure cut-throat approach to its sonic foundation is what we have consistently strived to ingrain into our own body of work, and it still holds true today. We hope we do it justice…” – Mat Lynch (guitars)
 
“Wasting Away” will appear on the bands forthcoming seventh studio album, Eulogy Death March, due out Spring 2021.
