Razed In Black

It was during the warm Hawaiian summer of 1994 that solo electronic composer ROMELL REGULACION deviated from his synth-pop outfit RIME progressing to a more aggressive and intense nature - meshing hard-edged electronics, pulsating rhythms, heavy guitars, and screaming vocals. The new project, formerly known as LOST SOULS, caught the eye of LA's gothic-industrial mecca CLEOPATRA RECORDS who signed Lost Souls as RAZED IN BLACK after a discovery of bands with the same name. Since then, RAZED IN BLACK's popularity has grown tremendously as its worldwide exposure continues. Currently, RAZED IN BLACK has released five solo records and have appeared as a remixer, producer, or guest artist on more than a hundred albums. ...show more

It was during the warm Hawaiian summer of 1994 that solo electronic composer ROMELL REGULACION deviated from his synth-pop outfit RIME progressing to a more aggressive and intense nature - meshing hard-edged electronics, pulsating rhythms, heavy guitars, and screaming vocals. The new project, formerly known as LOST SOULS, caught the eye of LA's gothic-industrial mecca CLEOPATRA RECORDS who signed Lost Souls as RAZED IN BLACK after a discovery of bands with the same name. Since then, RAZED IN BLACK's popularity has grown tremendously as its worldwide exposure continues. Currently, RAZED IN BLACK has released five solo records and have appeared as a remixer, producer, or guest artist on more than a hundred albums.

Notable high profile albums include providing remixes for Berlin, Information Society, Bowowow, Switchblade Symphony, Gary Numan, and more; as well as contributing to tribute compilations to such artists as Depeche Mode, The Cure, Metallica, Skinny Puppy, and more. RAZED IN BLACK's most recent offering, 'DAMAGED,' has created quite an impact since its release. A pristine amalgamation of industrial, Goth, trance, synthpop, and metal, encompassed with the heart-clenching emotions delivered only the way Romell Regulacion could. 'DAMAGED' is definitely his best work to date, taking electronic music to the next level.

The music on this 2-CD full length is enhanced with a slew of underground star appearances, all executed through Internet connections - possibly the first effort of it's kind. With the album written and recorded from Hawaii, Los Angeles, and Florida, having guests from as far as Japan to London would be quite a trek. Guests include Inertia, Gosumi, Spahn Ranch, Soil & Eclipse, Dj MissGuided, and Vicci Neptune. The second disc also includes remixes by Assemblage 23, Haruhiko Ash, Sonic State, and more. ...show less
