The Human Abstract

When a band takes its name from one of the metaphysical British poet William Blake's most allegorical and impenetrable poems, it clearly isn't taking the easy route to fame and fortune. In keeping with their titular inspiration, the Human Abstract favor a brainy, progressive take on contemporary metal and hardcore that looks beyond the usual cars-and-girls themes. Guitarist Dean Herrera and guitarist and keyboardist A.J. Minette formed the Human Abstract in 2004, adding bassist Kenny Arehart, drummer Brett Powell, and, finally, singer Nathan Ells. Inspired by progressive rockers like Rush and Dream Theater along with heavier contemporary acts like Between the Buried and Me and Minette's university music theory training, the Human Abstract recorded a demo and played a number of regional gigs before signing with the local indie Hopeless Records in 2005. Working with producers Eric Rachel and Jamie King, longtime veterans of the Southern California post-hardcore scene, the Human Abstract released their debut album, Nocturne in August 2006. A year later, Minette parted ways with the band due to creative differences. The Human Abstract's sophomore album, Midheaven, followed in 2008 and featured new guitarist Andrew Tapley. Further personnel changes found Ellis replaced by new lead singer Travis Richter in 2009. In 2010 it was announced that Minette had returned to the fold. In 2011 the Human Abstract returned with their third studio album, Digital Veil. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

holy s**t Digital Veil is heavy. i was like is this the same The Human Abstract as 'Nocturne'? Turns out yes, and I fully approve.
Report as inappropriate
Did they change there tuning on digital veil cause this is heavy as f**k!!

Went to give a thumbs up. Turns out I already did.

digital veil is better than both. RNS

Truth and Truth, Their everest was Nocturne. Digital Veil was a close second. If I had to compare Midheaven to anything I compare it to The Crusade by Trivium
Report as inappropriate
Midhaven was ehh but i think nocturne is definitely the best
Report as inappropriate
Ugh Midhaven was AWFUL!

MIDHAVEN was THE WORST dissappointm e n t in 2008 for new music. Midhaven was so bad i threw it out my window when driving my car because I was so pissed about how much it completley blew. I was expecting Nocturne ++++. Nocturne showed promise, Midhaven was lazy and misdirected and unorganized s**t.

Yeah wtf, how can you say that DV was disappointin g ? Richter put quite a bit of feeling into his vocals and the rest of the band followed accordingly. He's also better live.
Report as inappropriate
Are you kidding me? Digital veil was their answer to nocturne. Midheaven was total bag of crap
Report as inappropriate
Truth Of fact: Nocturne and Midheaven are their best work. I was highly disappointed by Digital Veil. I am familiar with Richter, Ad his vocals just aren't as good or Fitting as Ell's. Nathan's voice is one of the reasons I fell in love with The human abstract.
Report as inappropriate
this band is amazing live, seen them with aild and boo
Report as inappropriate
Maybe it'll take some more listens to get to really like it, but Digital Veil sounds a hell of a lot more like mundane, generic metalcore stuff than anything else. It's a lot like what a lot of people are making these days and isn't nearly as unique and diverse as the previous two. I'm excited to hear what their NEW new singer will bring to the party and quite glad Richter is gone.
Report as inappropriate
I think the new singer and "Digital Veil" is very mature and a great change for them.

AJ IS BACK AND THE BIO DOESN'T SAY SO...LATE ARE WE? AND IM SO GLAD MIDHEAVEN DID NOT DEFINE THE BAND...WASN' T A FAN...BUT DIGITAL VEIL IS STR8 MURDER! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT, HALF WAY OBSESSED BETWEEN THAT CD AND DAUGHTER'S SELF-TITLED
