I've been listening to Protest the Hero's new album 'Fortress' and it is great. Very progressive and heavy. I was wondering if they are considered metal or not. Discuss.

They're metal, but don't belong in the metal forum.

^ there's nothing hardcore about them.

Progressive metalcore. I can hear some hardcore in them, it's pretty obvious IMO, although I'll admit I don't listen to them much.

Early PtH/Happy Go Lucky was technical and melodic hardcore/pop punk, now they're more metalcore/thrash oriented.

They're awesome, but still metalcore.

^ The two aren't mutally exclusive. Metalcore is great when you avoid the commercial crap. Just like metal is. And... most music really.

He wasn't saying they were. Just that they don't belong here.

^^ I've just noticed 'metalcore' is the new 'nu-metal', dismissive term for metal heads to attach to any metal they don't like. So I feel the need to constantly remind people 'metalcore' =/= bad metal.

this is on the list of bands that shouldn't ever be mentioned in the metal forum. doing so is punishable by death.

Yep, I love me some Protest, they're one of my all time favorite bands, and even though they're basically straddling the "metal fence" with Fortress I still consider them mathcore.

No.

Fixed.
Anyways, I'm not quite sure of the classification of this band but I like what I've heard from them so far.

...that's why I found it funny enough to put it as a sig.
