Protest The Hero, the band that posts the stupidest and least informative studio updates in the world and makes unbelievably good music for a third record in a row; a band that managed to set itself apart in the modern technical metal world full of highly proficient musicians repeating each other's ideas or doing nothing more than demonstrating their skill, or both. Protest The Hero could have easily become just another group of wankers and a vapid screamer switching to familiar cloying singing on choruses. But this demented Canadian quintet have been different from their very first LP Kezia followed by the brilliant Fortress, and after a three year wait, Scurrilous has set the band even further apart from the trend.

Staff pick dedicated to the kind people who sent me this album for free as a little bonus item for my massive order of lysergic acid diethylamide that came in yesterday. That's what I call customer service! A++ WDBA

I'm sorry but the voice annoys the fuck out of me. I really tried to like this stuff but meh... The music can't save everything also. I can see why people like it though but not my cup of tea

It's an accuired taste, like wine or something.

Try "The Dissitience (you know what I mean)" off of Fortress.

That's what got me into this, and I love it to bits now

I'll never cease to be amazed by people's ability to be personally offended by music, having their metal sensibilities prodded like a burning hot poker up the jacksie. Being so metal must be a chore sometimes.

Also, THIS.

It bugs me when people, who dislike a certain genre, go and down vote albums. I mean, you know you don't like "deathcore" (LOL) so why are you listening to it?

I think you're getting something mixed up there. I don't like a lot of music but I'll check it out.

What Joe was saying is how some people feel offended because of their "status" in the realm of metaldom.

Sorry I had two points to make.

Say I hate deathcore, and I know it.

But I willingly listen to the new Suicide Silence album just to talk smack?

but yeah, then there's the guys who are like this music's untr00 and totally not kvlt.

Nah this wasn't aimed at you, it was at the people who just don't like something, so they downvote all their albums, without hearing them.

3. . He is trying for a better voice than he really has.


I understand you're other points, and respect taht you just don't like it(but I still don't think it could be a one, there's hardly any music that's that offensive.) but this is just plain wrong.

He has an extrodinary vocal range, as shown in this video (follow the description)



You are free to not like him, he's certainly not an "easy" listen, but he does have a very talented voice.

I enjoy his newer stuff more than the older. He sounds like he's crying. Years of practice though do show a great improvement.

I really like the first song, but after there it just goes so far downhill. For example: Tandem is one of the worst songs ever...it's just...so so bad.
