The Human Condition - _The Human Condition_
(Independent, 2003)
by: Adrian Magers (5 out of 10)
Former Sacred Reich guitarist Wiley Arnett has resurfaced in the metal world with The Human Condition, a kind of bare-bones, four-piece, rock metal band. Chances are, some Sacred Reich fans might be into this, but THC isn't quite as aggressive as Arnett's former band. Rather, on their debut offering (in the form of a short four-song EP) they exhibit a slightly more "bar band" quality. Unfortunately this tends to dull the songs a bit, and little stands out. The solos are excellent, but always seem to come at predictable times. Overall, though executed with a lot of passion, The Human Condition lacks a strong identity. With Arnett's technical prowess and skill, and the ambition that these four obviously exhibit, it won't take too much for them to put out a hell of a full length when the time comes. However, until then, there's definitely room for improvement.
