Biography

*Previously known as Gaywyre

The initial idea for the band Razorwyre was conceived by Chris Calavrias and James Murray in 2008, whom both had a strong desire to write and perform heavy metal music in the true style of the 1980’s. Though ideas were discussed, and initial material was written, it wasn’t until later when the project began to come to fruition. Through partying at the notorious Lorne Street practice space, the two guitarists met like-minded individuals who shared the passion for tradtional forms of metal music. Drummer Nick was recruited first, followed by bassist Simon, and finally by vocalist Z Chylde.

Razorwyre formed in early 2009 under the banner temporary banner ‘Gaywyre’ and promptly set about spreading beer fuled mayhem and true, traditional heavy metal throughout hometown Wellington, and laying waste to the cities of New Zealand. Gathering a reputation for an agressive, thrashing blend of ’80s inspired heavy metal, and an energetic, raucaus party-atmosphere live show, the band soon began to assemblea loyal following, playing to sweaty crowds and with various big name acts.

The band formed with the idea of playing heavy metal in the classic vein to todays hungry, metal-starved listeners, and set about writing and recording a debut EP, which after an anticipated several months, finally hit the streets in December 2009, with copies selling out in just a few short months, including sales in Europe and North America, prompting the idea of a limited edition reprint of the CD.
