-The First Time You Listen To Heretics And Killers You Will Soil Yourself.

yea, PTH is amazing. and ur right, i bout my pants when i heard heretics and killers
#3
i got to sit and jam accousticly with them at the warped this summer, they are really really nice guys, really soft spoken and cool. but ya they are insane at everything they do, extremely technical skill and complex writing. i wouldnt consider them metal though

but alas, they are indeed a band where its either you love them or you hate them, there really isnt an in between. but i for one love them

I love the album Kezia. It's such a breath of fresh air in the metalcore genre.
They're great.

They're from my hometown. They played a show at my highschool a few years ago and, despite how much I hate their music style, I was very entertained.

Definitely see them live if you get the chance.

Yeah for my friends birthday, we're going to see them with Trivium. It's going to be a great show.
#11
Wow, never really bothered listening to them. Vocals can occasionally get annoying but generally great stuff. Must pick up an album some time.

My weirdest dream would have to be when I dreamed that I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...that was pretty screwed up.
#12
one the most skilled bands in a long time...plus at such a young age they can pull off those sweet harmonies and awsome licks, i wouldnt consider them metalcore but thats just me. ive seen them play 4 times in my hometown and they keep getting better and better, they have amazing stage presence and i just purely love them..nice dudes
BURY YOUR DEADALIVE!

Haha, fo' real.

Yeah, but, if you haven't checked these guys out, you need to. I remember Brandon (Aspirations27) told me about them a long ass time ago and I was like "oh, ok, I'll check them out later."

Then when I finally got the record, I felt like a jackass.

It's one of the best things ever written. You need it.

I wear girl jeans. They're nice. Protest the Hero isn't hardcore or metalcore though, sorry to burst your bubble. Bands with mostly singing cannot be either of those. They're okay.. I saw them with Silverstein one time. Back when I was a queer and didn't listen to good music. They shouldn't be getting as much attention as this. They put on a good show but not an amazing one. They should get recognition but not this much. They're overrated. It's just that nobody plays fast music anymore. Check out these guys.

Progressive metal/post hardcore. You'll like that if you like Protest The Hero. You should like it damn well period, because they're incredible.

What Would You Consider Them ?

Protest the Hero are a great example of a genre defying band. And that is part of the reason why they are so damn good.

I saw them live 3 times in one week this summer I sang along with every word.

I also wrote the wikipedia article on Luke Hoskin because I'm wicked like that.
#20
I think PTH are good, but I'm sort of in between. The singing just sort of reminds me of Panic! At The Disco (Don't ask why, it just sort of does), and it kind of annoys me. I must say, though, Heretics and Killers is an awesome song. That intro just slays me.

i fully expect a PTH/Human Abstract split...and there should be an ONLY PTH thread. This band is amazing! They completely owned a7x when i saw them together.

I made one and I guess a mod deleted it.

So this is the "Offical Protest The Hero Only"

PTH. great band. not as good as you are all ranting about but a great band nonetheless
#25
No, they are that good.

And there have bene about 3999 threads about them already, kids.

Amazing band. I had to drive an hour after looking in 5 different stores to get Kezia on the day it came out, but it was more than worth it. I'm so pissed that Trivium canceled their Rochester show with PTH, just so they could have a bigger record-release party.
Call me Steve. All the cool kids are doin it.

Protest is a really great band. Straight out of my hometown! And they are the nicest dudes ever, I chilled with them after their show here on the 20th. lol I even smoked a joint with Arif and Moe with my roomate who used to be in a band that toured with them (Dead and Divine anyone?). Tim's a really great dude also.
no dice.
#28
yeah they are insane musicians, i find it hard to get into though...maybe its just because i get the impression that rody is complete douche bag though

They do seem to be pretty outspoken about their political beliefs.

PTH is an awesome band. They're young people, and they have such a high level of musicianship. Kezia is a killer record.

you probably know more about it than i do then, alot of people have said they are really cool guys in person, i wouldnt know ive never even seen them live but just judging by all the crap he puts on their myspace and interviews and stuff like that, he just gives off the impression of being a jerk

Their music is better than most hardcore but their vocals are so damn faggoty I wouldnt be caught dead listening to them in public (unless it were on headphones).

Dont be such a narrowminded moron. "Faggoty?" Are you serious?


The fact that you wouldnt listen to them because they arent accepted by the general public is shallow and cowardly.

LOL

Faggoty?

Thats funny.

Protest the hero's cd was clearly one of the best cd's of last year

behind Ascendancy (Trivium) , and City Of Evil.

Seriously why talk ? Can you sing any better ?

not this year, and city of evil is horrible.


PTH was amazing both times i saw them, rody was hilarious between songs. i was very entertained

Yes, it my opinion that the vocals are indeed very gay.
They sound like pop singing...his voice reminds me of Fallout Boy, and he screams like a little school girl.

And I never said that I dont listen to them because they arent accepted... do you think death metal as a genre is accepted? I listen to that stuff all the time.

LOL at that a7x comment...best album of the year?? Hardly.


And to your question of, "Why talk?"
If we all followed that way of thinking then most people couldnt complain about anything.

Child: "I dont like this apple ma..."

Mother of said child: "Shut the **** up son, lets see you grow them better"


Potential Buyer: "I dont like this house, the roof is leaking and there are cracks in the walls"

Real Estate Agent: "Well lets see you build it better"


Me: "I dont like this guys singing cuz he sounds like a ****ing faggot."

CheifSlapAhoe & Spaceman_Spiff in unison from their love bed: "...well gee...now that you mention it, he does sound like he guzzles a little too much cum between shows... *kissing ensues*"
etc. etc.


Im sorry, did I just make a little too much sense for your dumb little half assed high school arguement?
