Sparta quickly came together after the tumult of At the Drive-In’s rise to fame and subsequent implosion. Out of the remains of the band after Omar and Cedric left, Wiretap Scars was the sound of 3 dudes getting back to the post-hardcore vein they’d furrowed in relative obscurity previous to ATDI’s Relationship of Command. Limited 180g red vinyl reissue on Music on Vinyl.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 16th May 2016
This album has an atmosphere which many heavier rock albums fails to achieve. Sparta are a lot more experienced than many other bands of their genre, taking many influences from At the Drive-In, although they still create a unique and fresh sound. There are many moments of sheer brilliance on this album. 'Cataract' and 'Glasshouse Tarot' demonstrates everything great about this band, with it's sentimental verses and emotional choruses. Sparta have a very delicate songwriting style, never overdoing anything.
