Review by Warthur
3 stars This technically-inclined metalcore swansong from The Human Abstract finds the band dabbling in influences from djent and, particularly where the clean vocals are concerned, early Muse (circa Origin of Symmetry).

It have very good mix of Death Metal Vocals and harmonic Vocals. Also the Riffs are in a strange way amusingly. 1. Elegiac - Elegiac is a 2 min. ... (read more)
