Abnormal Thought Patterns has released its debut self-titled EP today, November 29th, via the band's own, newly-formed CynNormal Lab Recordings. You can find some options to order it physically and digitally on the band's Facebook page. Now, Metalunderground.com brings you the full-album stream as well. You can hear the entire album in the player below.

Abnormal Thought Patterns is comprised of the core and founding members of heralded technical act Zero Hour, the band was formed by Northern California-based brothers Jasun and Troy Tipton (both also of Cynthesis) and Mike Guy. In order to complete the live sound, the trio recruited longtime friend and talented guitarist Richard Sharman, a student of Jasun's for many years.

The four-part epic "Velocity and Acceleration" and bass-only track "Ulnar Nerve Damage" were mixed by talented producer/engineer Dino Alden (Marty Friedman, Zero Hour), but due to Dino's carpal surgeries the band reached out to Matt LaPlant (Sikth, Nonpoint) to mix the tracks "The Machine Within" and "Electric Sun." The EP was mastered by Alan Douches (Between The Buried and Me, The Dillinger Escape Plan) and the cover artwork commissioned to Erick "Wurm" Pollard.

Here is the track listing for Abnormal Thought Patterns' self-titled debut:

1. The Machine Within
2. Velocity and Acceleration Movement 1
3. Velocity and Acceleration Movement 2
4. Velocity and Acceleration Movement 3
5. Velocity and Acceleration Movement 4
6. Ulnar Nerve Damage
7. Electric Sun

There are a couple of parts where the tech wankery gets a bit overbearing or repetitive, but this is definitely very interesting to listen to. Overall I'm digging it so far.

well i for one cant resist anything that features the Tipton brothers AND Mike Guy - its great to hear the way he punds his kit - im not a huge fan of the instrumental genre - though some of that genre can be brilliant and this will takes its place in my favorites im pretty sure already.
