Thy Art has a very pragmatic mentality. The band has a defined sound and sticks to their guns like gum sticks to your shoes.

This results in material that sounds as if the members are stuck with solely 3 Lego building blocks and they go through the entire album alternating between the 3 in a rather unfulfilling manner, not quite sure of what they're doing.

On Human Target, Thy Art Is Murder take two steps forward and one step backward. The merciless title track, prophetic New Gods, and bleak Atonement are a few of the best songs the band has penned to date.

Thus, the inconsistency of songwriting here causes Human Target to shoot itself in the foot instead of striking a bullseye.

Some people are saying that this is underwhelming for this band, i personally disagree. I think this is some of their best material. Sure it doesn't break new ground but a lot of the time sticking to your guns and doing what you do very well is a better idea than changing up. Especially in a genre like deathhore. Its a damned if you do damned if you don't type thing. Look at Whitechapel this year.
Very similar to their previous work, but still a good album.
for TAIM it's a little underwhelming at times and does have some filler, but the tracks that are good are really good.
Best Track: Eye for an Eye
worst Track: MAHA
