AllMusic Review by

U.K.-based black/thrash metallists Razor of Occam hold little back on their 2009 release, Homage to Martyrs. All the requisite elements of each aforementioned metallic subgenre are in place throughout, resulting in an album that manages to be both intense and sonically dense at the same time. Picture an extreme metal accompaniment to images of the Apocalypse, and you're not far off from the style/approach that Razor of Occam specialize in, especially on such 100-percent tuneless ditties as "Altar of Corruption," "Immortal Code," and "Pattern on the Stone." Homage to Martyrs is one heck of a vicious sonic blitzkrieg.
