Through his lyrics, Fornof deconstructs his own psyche in the wake of Misery Never Forgets
, observing heartbreak through a philosophical lens. Replica of a Strange Love
is introspective, utilizing the work of Nietzsche, Foucault, LaVey and more to make sense of human reactions and sociological phenomena specific to ongoing events. Hopeless romanticism is the past — personal philosophy is the present.
From their roots as a DIY band — Jonah Thorne started WMR as a solo project before joining forces with Fornof for his creative vision before later welcoming Bryan Prosser and Tyler Norris for their eclectic skill sets and artistry — WRISTMEETRAZOR have blossomed into a force to be reckoned with. Still driven by the desire to get down in the dirt in a live arena, expect to see this four-piece in a town near you as soon as is possible.
Still fashionably dead, now is the time to take note of WRISTMEETRAZOR.
