Human Abstrakt - _Psychological Blindness_
(Independent, 2002)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
Last time reviewed Human Abstrakt it was in CoC #55 for a two-song demo they had submitted, and I was less than impressed with the submission, only taking a liking to the song "Vice". But what do you expect when you are set to review a release with only two songs? It can be hard to really get a good feel of a band after two songs. I am glad to say that their new release features nine songs and is truly leaps and bounds above the last submission. Now a three-piece, Human Abstrakt has strengthened their sound, managing to mesh together a very powerful mix of darkened thrash metal and power metal, kind of along the lines of Nevermore or early Queensryche. You can hear the creative juices running wild on this album, most notably on songs like strong opener "Dissention", "Blind Disciples" and "Prosperous Fool". I have been listening to this record on and off for the last few weeks and every time I come back to it I hear something different within the walls of their creative musical energy. And to think I once was ho-hum about this band. Thanks for sticking to your guns, Human Abstrakt, and coming back a few CoC issues later to kick my ass.
