The Human Abstract Euro Fest
2012-06-13 by Chuck Haller | 68 Comments

This 2012 tour for THA confirms that they are not in fact broken up, which was previously stated by the bassist, Henry Selva. There has been speculation that Corelia's Ryan Devlin will once again perform vocal duties for the festival. But there has been rumor that former vocalist Travis Richter could be joining back with the band for the festival and whatever may come.

As long as AJ, Henry, Dean, and Brett are in the band, it's all gravy. Could give a shit less who the vocalist is.

He had some solo stuff going on while he was in THA called NRE but I didn't like it and I have no idea what he's up to these days. He should just rejoin the band haha.

Yeah he did have some good chops on him, but AJ will always be the backbone of this band. He's so fucking filthy at guitar.

Aj is awesome. i hope if THA doesnt last he starts a neo-classical project. no metal/hardcore. just straight classical

Well I mean even the intro of Elegiac. It's so sick. He even grows his finger nails out so he can finger pick acoustic. Nasty guitar player.

Nathan sucks. He sucks at screaming and is mediocre at singing, Midheaven was essentially a Nathan side-project and was shit. Travis is an alright singer but his harsh vocals blow everything Nathan has uttered out of his mouth out of the fucking water.

Nathan is more "unique" though, sure.

Travis sounds like a fucking (literal) beast when screaming. And honestly I really enjoy his cleans

I like Nocturne (AJ was more interesting on here than on Digital Veil) and can certainly tolerate Nathan, but I just don't see the appeal in his vocals.

ChuckyTruant
June 13th 2012

Agreed. And nah as a guitarist myself Digital Veil is much more impressive

Fluttertrank

hmm he had so much passion and fire. idk something about his vocals were sick. to me Travis is just your everyday vocalist. didnt have the spark nathan had.

MeatSalad

The passion was there, you can tell he put a lot into it, problem is lack of ability.

Nocturne had some great stuff for sure. But I find Digital Veil superior on every level, especially the vocals. Travis blows everything Nathan's done out of the water. His screams are undeniably great, and I actually love his cleans, though I get that some people don't.

They're good, solid cleans, there's just nothing particularly special about them

I feel there's a sort of emotion in them that a lot of vocalists lack. Like towards the end of Antebellum, I can't really describe it, but his voice just seems... Awesome.

If Nathan was back I probably wouldn't mind that much but seriously Travis was so much better, both his cleans and screams are awesome. TBH I don't think Nocturne was near as good as Digital Veil because of Nathan.

paxman I love how you made a calm comment about expecting a hate fest on The Human Abstract, and then FearThyEvil9 makes a rage comment on Nathan.

If you really think that was a rage comment then you're retarded. I just dislike nathan because I think he's awful. I didn't say anything to people for liking him.

Nathan's vocals were a lot more energetic and lively I felt. His screaming sounded like a rougher version of his singing. It was almost like a punk vocalist in a technical metalcore band, which I loved. Travis's vocals are generic in every respect.

ChuckyTruant
June 14th 2012

Maybe Travis' cleans are 'generic' but they are very good, he's very controlled. Plus his screams are awesome. Travis is the better vocalist. Anyway, I don't why we are talking about Travis vs. Nathan because Nathan isn't even in the picture anymore. He's out of the question.

Nathan's the dude on Nocturne, right? If so, that guy's awesome. I love his vocal style. "Nathan's vocals were a lot more energetic and lively I felt. His screaming sounded like a rougher version of his singing. It was almost like a punk vocalist in a technical metalcore band, which I loved." all of their other songs.

Not at all. IMO the only too vocalists that even would work well on DV are Travis and Ryan

Ryan is a freakin bomb vocalist and he's very similar to Travis. Do you listen to Corelia?

@Chuck I have heard them before and remember the vocalist being unique but no I don't listen to them.

@Thor, because Nocturne was perfect and also because you touch yourself at night.

I tend to focus more on the instruments when listening to an amazingly talented band like THA, but I think where the vocals fit in really depends on what musical direction they go in next. Nocturne was technical and classical and so Nathan's softer vocals helped. But Digital Veil was a lot heavier and so Travis' heavier vocals went along really well. I hope their next album is a mix between Nocturne and Digital Veil because I love them both probably equally.

I like the vocalist they had on their demo ep. Try to find the song memento mori by them, it's the perfect middle ground between nathan and travis
