Phoenix-based rockers RAZER have teamed up with sponsors Krank Amplification and Gibson / Epiphone Guitars to create an impressive giveaway contest. Beginning on January 15th and extending through February 28th, contestants will enter for a chance to win one of three prize packages. 1st prize will consist of a brand new Epiphone Les Paul Standard Guitar alongside the impressive Krank Rev SST Head Amp w/ 4×12 Cab. The 2nd prize winner will take home a Krank Distortus Maximus guitar pedal, band t-shirt, and a signed copy of their debut cd, Dark Devotion. The 3rd prize winner will receive a 10-pack of D’Addario strings, a RAZER t-shirt, and signed cd. As a bonus to these top prize packages, the band will also give away a signed copy of Dark Devotion to 50 random entrants.
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 mosher.
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 Chris Catero also serves as touring bassist for legendary guitar god Marty Friedman of Megadeth fame 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.
