The Human Abstract returns with their sophomore full-length,
Midheaven, the follow-up to their highly acclaimed metal
masterpiece Nocturne. The Human Abstract has created
Midheaven to be a puzzle box of sorts, meticulously crafted,
and defying the expectations of a typical metal band.
Sweeping solos, chugging guitars, and technical drum-beats
underlie lyrics about intensely creative thought and
expression. They seek to make you think, to tear down the
established barriers that hold people back from becoming the
most powerful and knowledgeable beings that they can be.

I don't know what the fuck they smoked since they put out Nocturne, but this CD blows ass. It sounds like a totally different band...Nocturne is one of my favorite CDs and i absolutely hate this one. His voice is gay, the lyrics are cheesy as hell, they try to be way to experimental with the music, it just sucks all the way around. Its not even like metal or anything, its just awful. And i know that its good for bands to change and broaden their horizons but fuck man this is brutal. Even if you have an open mind while listening to it you will probably still think its shitty. I'm really sad because after hearing nocturne i know their potential as a band. Hopefully they return with a better album for their third release and go back to their Nocturne days.
