Thumbs up Protest the Hero

Very rarely do you find a band at the tender age of 18/19 who play instruments, sing, and drum as though they'd been playing for centuries. Protest the Hero are a cerebral Progressive/Metal/Punk band who's concept CD Kezia is absolutely breathtaking. The concept is about this girl (Kezia) who's been sentenced to Death Row and the reactions from the prison priest, the prison guard, and Kezia herself.

This album contains some absolute blinding songs, with fantastic vocals and mindblowing lyrics that will make you cry. The ending climax to 'She Who Mars the Skin of Gods' is right up there with Hallowed be thy Name and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. The intro to 'Heretics and Killers' will make you break small childrens' backs. And the melodies in lead single 'Blindfolds Aside' will kill you, resuscitate you, kill you again, and then pee on you from the top of K2.

I've considered buying Kezia, but they have some awfully emo moments.

This band is bullshit. I'm glad people pay them money for their music, because otherwise I might feel bad about making fun of how fucking retarded they sound.

The stop-and-go format is very annoying...

If bands are gonna use it, use it tastefully. It can be effective once in a while, for a very brief time, but when whole songs and whole albums are basically composed of that..........

No, Angelripper just listens to lots of emo and shit, but he also listens to a lot of awesome shit so it offsets

Mine would all have to be local bullshit. Most national acts I see at least deserve to be there.
