    I'm checking these guys out live Nov. 4 in Wichita Kansas. They're playing in an Eagles Lodge that my band has played twice. Super small venue. No stage...just a drummer platform. Gonna be sick.

    Check out that Napolean Dynamite Arpeggiating Shredder of a guitar player they have. Almost the whole band is made up of 20 yr olds. Makes me want to quit :wallbash: but I have to love them because they led me here. Check em out!

    Holy Fucking Hell. :hbang: :hbang: :hbang:

    Insanity but with lots of actual singing over it. Along with awesome classical guitar riffs shoved in between the blistering shred. :metal:

    :shred:

    They're OK...their lead guitarist can shred, or at least looked like he could when I saw them with MNEMIC and God Forbid...Personally though, I think there's too much singing in metal these days. It seems like all these new "metal" bands are doing it these days to fit the trend/mold...just my opinion.

    I don't really mind what the vocalist does as long as the music kicks ass.

    Alot of people think that protest the hero is bad because of the singing but it doesnt bother me at all. I like it more some times than others but i never stop listening because of vocals.
    And i think the human abstract is pretty cool for actually taking the time to tab out some of their songs for their fans. They're not very famous and wont make any money since its not a tab book their taking their time to do something their fans requested. Thats a big:yesway: in my book.

    I just got back from their show. It was insane. I got to meet Nathan, their vocalist, which was really cool. Plus, they had EBMM John Petruccis, which is always a plus.

    :D I find that amusing, 'cause to ME, the screaming is the new trend; the metal bands I grew up with ALL sang, and sang their asses off :hbang:

    I understand what you mean though... I've noticed I've just gotten used to (and able to really appreciate!) all these bands screaming - and the next album they put out is mostly singing! And they're all doing it at the same time... hmm.... :lol:

    Ah well, trends come and go, styles come and go... as long as they do it WELL, and with soul, I'm all for it!

    Yeah all of these songs are off their first album with the original guitarist. A.J. Minette is the guys name but he left the band because he just couldnt play metal anymore. Hes into classical style stuff and hes such an amzing guitarist.

    "Nocturn" Is an amazing song. At first I didn't like them, as at the time I had heard of sooo many bands that sounded just like them, but I listened to it anyway, and it's a great song!

    These guys have some talent and interesting ideas, but sometimes it's hard to get over the whole 'breakdowns every other second' style they have.

    About the only metalcore band I like or so. Crossing the Rubicon is a fucking badass song. Desiderata is a cool instrumental song too.
