anyone heard Protest The Hero?
 
I recently checked them out (after I saw a song on much loud one night) to see if they had any other good songs (much loud is where I found out about Quo Vadis so I gave them a chance).

They're canadian, and I wouldn't exactly say they're metal, but the newer album has some interesting aspects to it, and despite the mainstream vocals they don't sit that bad with me. Some of their faster, more metal sounding songs are Heretics And Killers, Nautical, Bury The Hatchet and Divinity Within. Here's Nautical

There aren't many complete tabs, none here at all, which I would say makes sense. Here's Here's a fairly good profile.

So anyone else here heard them (or of them)? What do you guys think? I plan on listening to them a little longer to make up my mind fully..

Hold on there buddy --- you're still a freshman in these parts.

Great fucking music, not too keen on the singer's voice though.

I'll be seeing them with Dragonforce in May, should be fun.

Requiem 2006-04-21 14:26

oh you suck DragonForce isnt coming to Texas

The hardgay vibes emanating from this song are too much for me. Post-hardcore emo shyt.

hey. don't be talking bout GWAR badly. They are a really great band that is good and they are really great so listen to War Party now. Except if your a black metaller. (those people scare me with their KISS make-up and body armor)

metal_monkey 2006-04-22 03:27

the only good for thing about gwar is watching live videos of them its just so damn funny

AchromaticChronicles 2006-04-22 05:12

I certainly didn't expect anyone to enjoy the vocals. Anyway the music (despite the vocals) is excellent to me, especially for a fairly mainstream band.

Heretics & Killers:

I fell inlove with Kezia.

+ i saw 'em last sunday they rock my world.

I fucking hate protest the hero. I think they are pussies and should quit right now before some crazed slayer fanatic runs on stage and rips one of their heads off.

Kalmahswamp 2006-06-30 12:02

I liked them, thanks for the suggestion.

BLS 2006-07-04 20:03

The concept behind Kezia is pretty cool, but I wouldn't expect many people around these parts to admire a band that puts actual thought into their lyrical content... that being said, settle down lands.. go band to your gore lyrics.. hurry! FASTER!

anyone who cares to read up on Protest, check out these wikipedia links, some pretty amazing stuff, especially this part; "For their most recent album, rather than writing songs in their musical boundaries, Protest wrote music that they could not play, and then forced themselves to learn how to play it over the last two years."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kezia


they also have some pretty cool videos, something that is definetly a rariety these days

all that said, this band kicks ass. I'm sorry if you feel the need to alienate yourself from such an experience.
