Synoeca was also my first thought. But for Synoeca I would need to see the face from the side. I remember that there is another black wasp around, which is not Synoeca. But at the moment I cannot remember the name or subfamily.

This looks like one of the Paper Wasps --- Synoeca sp , possibly ,S. septentrionalis .These are sometimes called Warrior Wasps because of their aggressive nature.
