Protest the Hero = fucking awesome, right ?

#1 Post by Frozen within » 09 Nov 2013 14:13

Just thought that this amazing unique band deserved its own topic, even (or maybe especially) on a forum close to total abandonment. For me they've delivered the album of the year with "Volition", which I also consider their best effort to date. It's heavy (it simply kicks your ass non-stop) ,intense, absurdly technical and melodic in such an innovative way. The musicianship here is nothing short of stellar all over the album, I can't believe these guys managed to top their previous work, especially "Fortress" seemed to be impossible to outdo. I think it's so fucking great that even in this age of pop-idol-worshipping bullshit, there are musicians out there who make it their mission to aim for eternal improvement and deliver what I consider groundbreaking music, pure out of love for their craft. It's worth crying about really :wink:

For me, music in general doesn't get better than this.

Listening to the first song of the album right now, just for the heck of it. I must say I'm fairly surprised that I like it. Even though it's not only clean vocals.

Sometimes you have some weird thoughts, Mickey... :lol:

I once had to take pictures of them (getting paid for that makes it easier to find the motivation to duck the stagedivers). Here is the probably best result:

YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

Thanks Rieke, and quite a cool shot you made there ! This was probably the most sane thought popping out of my skull in a long time, so it's really for the best that I keep the other shit inside :)

I'd love to see these guys play somewhere soon.

No !! You don't know what you're asking ! It's like Pandora's box, once opened there's no stopping the endless stream of insanity. Must ... keep ... thoughts ... inside.
