Formed in 1999 as Happy go Lucky, Protest the Hero (abbreviated as PTH or simply Protest) is a Canadian post-hardcore metal band with punk influences (see genre section) from Whitby, Ontario.

Right.

Genre's annoy me, but not as much as those who feel the need to list several genre's to describe the sound of one band...

its fun to read though hehe

Why would they they're useful for categorizing music.
If there were no genres shit would be really fucked up.
Listing several genres refines the category for which that band should be in and it is useful for getting people into bands, describing music, etc.

I rather listen to a band then decide wether I'd like them based on how cool their genre sounds


and sure.. you can call Protest post happ hardcore, metalcore, deathy, trash, tech core with a taste of math magician magic...?

or you can listen to them, and not bother trying to fit everything into a nice little mold.

Eh, some cool guitar stuff, they obviously have talent. But the vocals make we want to go watch Will and Grace. And thats a bad thing.

Chances are you would have wasted your time with a band called 'Brutal Gore Fuckers' no matter what.

I hate the genre fagdance as much as anybody, but it makes sense for the reasons Infinity almost articulated. And listing a few existing, recognizable genres to give an impression about the areas the music touches upon is preferable to coining new genre names that tell you nothing about the music because it's easier than giving a helpful description. More helpful would be the specific bands whose influences you think you hear, but, generally speaking, even this would only be mildly helpful and would always lead back to the requirement that 'you have to hear it.' Art criticism fucking sucks and it's a shame we need it.

I highly like Protest The Hero. Kezia is one of my favorite albums of 2006. Jadea Kelly's (the girl) voice is so beautiful and Walker's voice is different and I actually enjoy it. Kinda like The Mars Volta meets technical metal. I don't expect most metalheads to enjoy them. Life outside their box is too big and scary.

They came from the city next to mine, and usually i'd give them a wee bit of respect...but i just dont really like them. The keyboardest is a tad to much for me...they are decent i guess, just kinda...homosexual?

This is funny. I believe they are the same band this black dude was listening to in the gym a few months ago. I had been listening to Origin or something like that, and when I stopped, he played his CD which I figured (incorrectly) would be rap. He's in my Political Science Research and Statistics class so I'll have to ask him.
