Usurp Synapse

Usurp Synapse were a four-piece screamo band from Indiana that formed in 1998 and broke up in 2001. They reformed in 2004 to record an EP, but that wouldn't see the light of day until 2008 when they released it online themselves. This band are an incredible blend of grindcore and emoviolence influence, and put out a ton of material to document their sound. Most of it was on splits with other fantastic bands, such as Neil Perry and Jeromes Dream, as well as a few EP's and compilation appearances (including the incredible Antipodes). All of their surprisingly large amount of output was included on their discography LP, Disinformation Fix, in 2003. The following year is when the aforementioned EP, titled Vile Contamina, was recorded. With the release of that in '08, all of their recorded material has been put out, and all included below for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.
