Biography

There are two artists with the name Razer:
1) BIO Phoenix, AZ-based rock/metal outfit Razer was formed from the ashes of Metal Blade Records artist Wardog by bassist Chris Catero, guitarist Paul Sullivan and drummer Eric Bongiorno. Guitarist Jeromy Graves joined the fold soon after and the band started writing songs and gigging with Catero reluctantly serving as lead vocalist. Even though they hadn’t found the lead singer they were looking for just yet the band honed their writing chops and turned themselves into one of Phoenix’s premier local acts, opening for the likes of Judas Priest as well as other national acts that came through. Eventually an LA-based online ad placed by former Shift singer Chris Powers ended the exhaustive search as the band found “the voice” and the voice found “the band”. The new quintet quickly gelled with their efforts resulting in late 2006’s independently released “Falling In Line” album. The band’s heavy sound, mixed with exceptionally strong songwriting and Power’s powerhouse vocals, caught the ear of the staff at Phoenix’s KUPD radio station who started supporting the band locally, placing Razer on station sponsored shows and giving them the occasional spin even though the station doesn’t rotate unsigned acts. The album also garnered the attention of music biz professionals, resulting in Powers being selected by Guitar Hero video game song producer Steve Ouimette to sing on the game ending “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” on “Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock”.
