stream the record:

Just months after releasing their 3-song demo, Virginia’s WRISTMEETRAZOR recorded and released their debut LP ‘I Talk to God,…But the Sky is Empty’ on double 7”. Blending screamo and metalcore seamlessly, the three-piece drop four tracks per 7” with blistering hardcore (“Nothing Gold Can Stay”, “De Nadie”) as well as slower, expansive and epic post-hardcore (“This Summer’s Sorrow” , “Anesthetic”). Definite ties musically to .gif from god and SeeYouSpaceCowboy and member-wise with grindcore solo project Secondgradeknifefight. Phenomenal debut.

2×7”LP with foldover jacket and insert (black/200) 8 tracks.

a review:

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 2×7” 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.
