Finally for the first time ever these guys are coming to Europe, gonna see them playing alongside Every Time I Die but I'm most interested in Protest. Anybody here like them?

Quite a technical band, they wrote all the songs so that they couldn't play them and then learned them in like the next couple of years... when they started they were pretty much your basic punk band so they've worked ****ing hard!

I downloaded that CD and so far it sounds very good indeed actually. I haven't found a decent heavy-ish band in ages, so I was pleased.

Very good band, the most technical metalcore band there is, I say. Sure, Trivium has some pretty good guitar work, but they have 4/4 in every song, whereas Protest go wild with signatures.

Threadstarter: I was gonna see them with Every Time I Die (and Exit Ten, who I like too) but it seems I can't afford it, when you look at funds for Tool, Download and my new amp.

Protest the Hero tops my fav hardcore bands list. The 5th Commandment, Bury The Hatchet, Divinity Within, Turn Soonest to the Sea, and of course Blindfolds Aside are my favs.

What are your guys' thoughts on the Blindfolds Aside video?

The CD has definitely been available in Canada since the fall of '05 here in Canada. I absolutely love those guys. It's such an amazing record. I can't wait to see them in August. It's funny cuz they are playing with NOFX here in halifax and yet I am most definitely more excited to see Protest.

a7x fail at everything.

Which in turn causes Protest to accomplish everything. Everything.

Anyways, I can't believe it took me this long to get into this band. It's about 3:15 AM here and I just stole Kezia from Brandon (lol sry d00d but I didn't figure you'd care and also you were asleep so I didn't think it mattered. But if you'd rather me not do that then I'm really sorry and just let me know so I can know not to do that anymore).

Anyways... this album is amazing. I sort of think it is more metal... but of course anything even remotely exciting can't be considered metal. Not to mention the youthful sounding, but still extremely... EXTREMELY strong vocals.

I seriously don't think there is anything wrong with this band.

Ok; album?

It's a concept album of course. I'm only starting to kind of catch on. I'm pretty sure I've got a lot of it wrong though.

I know there is a main character named Kezia. Kezia is a girl, right? Is she like, some kind of divine diety? Why is she so important? I think I understand that she is captured and killers herself in track 9.

I also think are a few more characters.

A priest possibly? A holy man, but only a man. He wants to kill Kezia for some reason?

Also, a soldier maybe? A gunman at least... Who is sort of divine or everyone thinks he is? I dont know. Someone help me out because concept albums fascinate me.

^ All I know (by 'know', I mean 'think')...

Tracks 1-3 = the priest/judge's story

Tracks 4-6 = the soldier/executioner's story

Tracks 7-9 = Kezia's perspective

Track 10 = the conclusion/finale/whatever

Ok sweet. Thanks.

Although I don't think I really understand how they all fit together. Most particularly how Kezia plays into all of this.

I'm not too sure of the story myself. I think it would be easier if I had the real CD, but I can't find it anywhere over here yet STILL. I was sure it was due to come out a few weeks back but still no sign of it. As it is, I really cannot be bothered to crawl through pages of internet lyrics sites to find them, so I'm gonna wait for the release or get it imported. Interesting to see where they go after this, whether the next album will be another concept or just your regular album?

I'm pretty sure the story is that Kezia is being put to death via the electric chair or something, and it shows 3 concepts of it, one from her, one from her prison guard and one from the priest who speaks the last words to her.

I think it's SUPPOSED to be by firing squad, but I think she killers herself via "The Divine Suicide of K."
