Usurp Synapse / Hassan I Sabbah - Just Do It! (2000)
Country: United States
If it wasn't clear already with its tongue-in-cheek title and artwork, this short split is about suicide. It seems sort of ridiculous, especially when listening to the beginning of some of the Usurp Synapse songs, but it can be forgiven when you realize how intense and raw both bands can get. There is some feeling of catharsis within these songs that really give that feeling of despair and kind of give the feeling of the artwork and title (in other words, suicide). Perhaps one of the best splits in the genre.
