The good thing about this is that there is no filler to be found--every single track stands out.

Technical Metal has come a long way over the past few years. Bands are starting to branch out into sub genre's within the Tech Metal camp and is truly allowing some excellent and interesting music make it to hard disc and become regular rotation on Heavy Metal airwaves. The Human Abstract have hit a home run with Digital Veil bringing a chaotic ambiance that at times is (at least for me) reminiscent of Cynic's latest release Traced in Air. Though what set's them apart is the strong Classical influence and the sheer heaviness that at points steps into the boundaries of Death/Black Tech Metal. All that said it is the band's ability to find a stable center point we're the heavy and more ambient sides can clash in glorious harmony.

Vocalist Travis Richter truly shows his worth as his deep guttural death growls bring rage to the heavier parts and yet his tranquil clean vocals bring a depth of humility to the harmonic chorus' and more tranquil tracks. With most Tech Metal groups two instruments stand out above all; Drums and Guitars. On Digital Veil I find that the guitars take the lead going from tapping to haunting acoustics at break neck speeds. I have to take note of the guitar work done on the second track 'Complex Terms' where we see a wide array of guitar styles and a great deal of technicality. Brett Powell puts down some intense fills through out the album and some of the finest cymbal work I've heard in some time I only think theirs a few moments on Digital Veil where his wrists get a break.

All and all Digital Veil has yet to leave regular rotation in my CD player and I doubt it will anytime soon.

I have been following this album very carefully since it's initial announcement. After their incredible debut, Nocturne, and their much less favorably received sophomore attempt, Midheaven, I wasn't sure what to expect from THA. Fortunately, the band knew where they needed to go, and have crafted the perfect album to bring them back to (and hopefully above) the level of recognition they received for Nocture. I am happy to say that this album is exactly what I wanted from THA--every single song is incredible (the stand-out here being the first single, Faust) and weaves an incredible mixture of classical and progressive metal influences. The musicianship of the band is out of this world (due largely to the return of guitarist A.J. Minette) and the songs are tightly crafted masterpieces.

The only real complaint to be made is about the album's length. Clocking in at just under 37 minutes, the 8 tracks fly by rather quickly. The good thing about this is that there is no filler to be found--every single track stands out. I wish the band hadn't released so many of the tracks before the album dropped, however. 5 of the 8 songs were released by the band before the album was out, making the new content short but sweet.

This album has certainly lived up to the hype; the return of A.J. Minette and the new voice of Travis Richter--a much more fitting vocalist for the band than the previous member, Nathan Ells--have brought this band to a new height. Digital Veil is everything I wanted and more, and a definite contender for album of the year 2011.

I'm picky about metal. I'm a big Gojira, Cynic, Lamb of God, Dillinger Escape Plan, BTBAM, (etc.) fan, but I always want to hear substantial melodic content with superb instrumentation. I won't listen to huge chunks of albums because bands so seldom pull it off. Everything about this album makes me happy - the guitar playing is gorgeous, the singing is melodic enough that I don't get a headache, the drumming is sweet, and the lyrics are intelligent.

This is the album I'm telling everyone to pick up!

All i can say is holy s***. this album has so much dimension. the lows are amazing. the songs never get boring. heavy riffing all over mixed with amazing melodic guitar playing. Travis richtor was the missing piece. he has displayed in this album that he is easily one of the best vocalists in metal. his growals are primordial and his singing is so sowerful and empty that it fills out the songs perfectly. HOLY S***. human abstract is giving lamb of god a run for their money

This album is awesome. Great guitar work. The album flows really well. After owning it for years it is still one of my favorites. It's unfortunate that these guys haven't been making more music together.

This can be one of the best Neo-Classical metalcore ever.
It is worth being bought, so put it into your cart!

Digital Veil is the 3rd album by The Human Abstract. Despite changing vocalists, to me, I thought this was one of their best records thus far. The guitars are back to the same shredding glory of their first cd. The vocals are amazing, the perfect combo of singing then epic growling. You cannot argue with the drummer's technical skill. Each track is memorable and begs to be repeated.
