Wristmeetrazor's name, artwork and choice of audio samples certain hark back to Usurp Synapse but that is really the only similarity here. You'll have to let them off it being a 2x7'' too; I believe this is a rerelease/combination of two records. Fortunately, it's good. The melodic instruments work well together and the moment when they jar in unison at the end of '1716' is a highlight. The vocals are very metalcore but give them a chance. This is such a mix of different styles and I'm starting to think it works. 'This Summer's Sorrow' is a bit of a letdown track but they bring it back with 'Bible Study With an Atheist' (right out of the Neil Perry school of song titles) before going for an epic outro.
