Biography

downRazor established itself to deliver the best parts of all of its influences. Memorable riffs, crunching rhythms, infectious melodies and intelligent lyrics embody their unique sound. The memorable choruses and thunderous aggression are eager to please all fans of the heavy rock genre while the tempo changes, odd meters, and theory defying twists set them apart from their peers.

downRazor is the longtime brainchild of Heath. After several semesters of vocal training at Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and a catalog of distinct, unique music, downRazor was ready to be born. Dave’s sharp and aggressive drumming style drove the music like never before. Jerry has been a staple of the Wisconsin metal scene and brings his fiery brand of bass playing. And finally, Jordan, the young guitar virtuoso, added the final piece to this already thriving monster. His theoretical knowledge and unbelievable lead work has pushed the limits of downRazor even further. downRazor continues to wow audiences at each of their energetic, aggressive live performances.

Lyrics

Burn Circle

Written By: downRazor

I hear it call out to you
Consuming what you are
The catalyst for torment
The cure for all your scars
I can’t believe I’m breathing
You’ll witness I can scream
Deny my heart from beating
To prove that I won’t bleed
I can’t deceive the imminent
I cannot mask my wounds
I can’t survive my innocence
But can I live through you?

Burn
Raining down
Burn
Crawling out
Burn
All around
Nothing tears you away

I crawl beyond the ashes
Of my blackened grave
The blood and tears that drowned me
Now fuel the master slave
It’s time to wield my power
Brandish what I have learned
Extend beyond my circle
To prove that I can burn
I can’t deceive the imminent
I cannot mask my wounds
I can’t survive my innocence
But I can live through you

Burn
Raining down
Burn
Crawling out
Burn
All around
Nothing tears you away

I hear it call out to me
Consuming all I am
Awakened by the mercy
Bleating of this lamb
I hear your panicked breathing
I know that you can bleed
Ineffable baptism
Your pain ignites my greed
I recognize
The fear within your eyes
Like mine when it surfaced
Spreading the burning circle

Burn
Raining down
Burn
Crawling out
Burn
All around
Nothing tears me away

Firefly

Written By: downRazor

Paint the sky for all our eyes
It’s black as death to me
Nighttime rides for endless miles
But I’m too blind to see
Shadows cast on trails of glass
They cloud what seemed so clear
Forced to spare a piece of prayer
On puzzles of my dreams
Sew the lines of fate and forecast

Force the war
My shadow and my light
Two beginnings
One isn’t over
Until there’s an enemy

Drape the stones with brilliant sewn
Luminescent spread
The eyeless drone of what’s unknown
Never to be fed
Hunger for the ceiling kneeling

Force the war
My shadow and my light
Two beginnings
One isn’t over
Until there’s an enemy

Enabler

Written By: downRazor

Beneath the warm embrace
The suckling of your juices
Shivering, clutching something
In this cocoon
And I pray and obey
All the voices and the choices
Whisper they
Are everything

Where’s my savior
And my redemption
My hands are
Outstretched
Empty and numb

Beneath the tattered shelter
The honey flakes from your spoon
Withering, clutching nothing
In this hollow room
And I pray and obey
One more voice and one more choice has
Vanished and
Left me with nothing

Where’s my savior
And my redemption
My hands are
Outstretched
Empty and numb

Released from domination
Wrenched from my sinking grave
Realize my master
I was my own slave
And I’m prey to my ways
No more voices, no more choices…

Where’s my savior
And my redemption
My hands are
Outstretched
Empty and numb
