The new Human Abstract album Digital Veil is so good. So, so good. And it just gets better with each listen; there’s so much happening from a musical perspective that it’s impossible to become bored. Have you checked it out yet? Grade A music of the highest caliber… the kind of compositions and arrangements most metal musicians wish they could write. Too bad for everyone else!

Even though The Human Abstract released a video for the Digital Veil title-track just 6 weeks ago, they’re already back with another one for “Patterns,” a less heavy but more intricate and classically-informed song. Whereas “Digital Veil” was a banger that served well to draw in first-time THA listeners that were all about the heavy, “Patterns” — with its three-part guitar motion, superb soloing and intricate overall orchestration — is a better representation of what the album is like as a whole. As for the video, the members of THA seem to have ditched their blank tank tops in favor of black tees… I guess they really black. I wonder if these two clips were filmed during the same session? Certainly possible.

The Human Abstract and Scale the Summit set out on the MetalSucks-sponsored “Pull Me From The Gallows Tour” across the U.S. starting May 13th. Dates here.
