END YOUR CRAPPY MONDAY BY STREAMING ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR SO FAR

850

I am almost out of hyperbolic poeticisms to declare how much I fucking love Digital Veil, the new offering from The Human Abstract. Luckily for me, I really don’t have to say anything else about the record, ’cause it’s now streaming in full right here. Listen to it. Learn it. Love it. Get excited about purchasing it tomorrow when it comes out on eOne. Get excited about the band’s current tour with Darkest Hour and some other bands (remaining dates after the jump).

And, oh yeah, if you haven’t already, check out THA guitarist A.J. Minette’s ongoing MetalSucks music theory column, “Abstract Theory.” That shit is seriously, ridiculously informative  — he’s only done three so far, but I get excited each and every time he sends one in.

Okay, I’m gonna go crank this sucker. Discuss its aardvark-baby-impalingness in the comments section below. And here are those tour dates:
