Even though at first listen The Human Abstract sounds like your prototypical metal band if you take the time to scratch a bit beneath the surface then you'll realize that they are anything but. They do play loud and fast, but they set themselves apart by writing lyrics that have nothing to do with wine, women or song. Well, there may have a little bit about each…what they most concern themselves with is trying to express in word and music the range of human emotions. Maybe it is the band members' background in classical music…I don't know….whatever it is this is not a band that you are going to see bite the heads off bats or have girls dancing on stripper poles to gain attention. They are going to try and take the high road. That does not mean its boring or without any bumps, though.
