I've seen threads for Protest the Hero and Between the Buried and Me, so some of you are sure to enjoy them or have heard of them.
The Human Abstract has only put out one album so far called Nocturne which is available for only 10bux on their myspace for anyone interested.

Here's a video clip for Crossing the Rubicon.



They do have a new CD coming out soon (8/19) called Midhaven, but the bad news is, if you like Nocturne it may just not be the same.
The member who had the classical influence on THA left, so fans are weary of how its going to sound.

Bottom line though, at least check out Nocturne. Great album, great band.

They're also headlining a tour on the west coast, so go to the myspace and check out the dates!

Yeah, its too bad that AJ had to leave them. Have you heard the new song?
I'm kind of scared now too honestly, but I hope the rest of the songs on the album will work a lot better.

See, the biggest problem I have with the human abstract is that I think they have an awful frontman. that guy's voice just isn't that good. The music may be incredible, but I just can't stand his voice. Perhaps I could track down an instrumental version of the album (like they have with Protest The Hero's "Fortress") because that would be awesome.

A lot of people that know of them just hate his clean vocals... and well the others too, but not as much as his singing. Usually they don't like Rody's voice from PtH either, was that the case with you?

Yeah, i'm talking about the clean vocals more than the screams. I happen to like Rody's voice, especially on Fortress. I have mixed feelings with his work on Kezia, but he rocks the hell outta Fortress. Perhaps THA will also clean up their vox? I certainly can hope so

I really do enjoy THA's vocals, its a unique voice for sure and I love it. What I'm worried about is losing AJ's influence.

Also, Rody is a badass. B)

I feel the same way. I can't get into this band because of the vocals.
When I first heard "Vela, Together We Await the Storm" I was all like DAMN!!!
And the vocals kicked in and I was like no thanks.

I do like Protest the Hero, and I like Rody Walker's singing.

Yeah, vocals kind of kill it for me too. And I do like rody...AND James LaBrie of DT, who everyone seems to hate. Pretty sweet band though. I'm going to have to look into 'em.

You can preorder their cd now, and if you're quick enough you'll get an autographed copy.

its a flash so I cant directly link, but it should be on the right side when you first enter.

Opinions on the new shit?

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PKDGAZH7

Since AJ is gone, what I worried about happened. It's just not the same since they lost that neo-classical influence.
Its not as bad as I thought it was going to be, maybe because the mixing is way better than the preview tracks they put up on the myspace but who knows.
His vocals have improved, but the negative side to this is the "talk-singing" hes doing in almost all of the songs. I can understand one or two, but come on. That shit is never good. Its an okay album, but nowhere near as amazing as Nocturne.
I'd give it maybe a 3/5.
