Biography

Fate Razor is the long-running side project of Crimson Boy’s Vince Valentini, formed after the demise of the first incarnation of Crimson Boy in 1990. Sonically and thematically it is the Mr Hyde to CB’s Dr Jekyll – a much harsher, darker twin soul fastened to a dense propulsive sound that melds industrial noise, dub, electronica, and bastardised hiphop (showcased on 1996’s BlackGuard Wolfpack and 1998’s Cold Star – both featured on the upcoming Retrospective E.P.#2 ).

The songs of Fate Razor are known not only for their frequent mathematical bludgeoning, but also for their ventures into a cinematic human dystopia equal parts nihilism and rebellious will-to-resist; an emotional and philosophical current derived initially from the edge and dark power of Australasian post-punk.

After a hiatus of over a decade, two EP’s of songs sourced from ’93 onwards have been remastered and set for release to commemorate the visceral past, and to make way for its evolution…
