Image of Protest the Hero


Protest The Hero have carved an identity for themselves that is so revolutionary within heavy music that to call them “unique” would be like calling Louis C.K. “pretty funny” or the classic “Star Trek” television series “influential sci-fi.” The band effortlessly balances high-minded artistry with wit and whimsy, substantive viewpoints with ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Protest comes through with another masterpiece! March 22, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Protest the Hero is one of those bands...when you first hear them, you're not sure what to think because it's overwhelming. The 6 finger tapping verse melodies, Rody's spine-bending vocal range, the list goes on and on. But the more you listen to it, the more you realize that there is a colossal musicality to what they do that transcends all the technique involved. Scurrilous is the album that makes this most apparent. Catchy, memorable, and unforgettable. The growling/screaming is largely gone, and while I occasionally enjoyed the contrast on previous albums I think it was a smart move and a natural progression to their sound. There isn't a weak track to be found on the album, although my favorites are definitely Moonlight, Termites, Sex Tapes, and Tongue-Splitter. Rody took over writing the lyrics and it's great, as things are now very real and it's a lot easier for the audience to identify with what's being said. Overall, this is probably one of my top 10 favorite albums of all time (Kezia also belongs on that list), and an extremely strong record that encompasses much of what this band is truly capable of. 5 stars, gentlemen. Can't wait for the live show in May.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL killer, NO filler March 22, 2011
By Nuggeth
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of metal for as long as I can remember. I am not one of the metal snobs who only likes one genre and trash talks all others. I truly enjoy all types of music as long as it takes talent, passion and originality. I have known about and enjoyed Protest the Hero for many years now but this is their first album that I have really gotten into and it is nothing short of amazing. Every song is filled with killer guitar riffs, catchy vocals and well thought out lyrics. This album definitely has the classic protest the hero sound but there is just something about it that flows much better and seems much more " complete " for lack of better term. I had extremely high hopes for the new Human Abstract album( I don't think they will ever be able to beat Norturne ) and while it was good, it is no where near the gem that is Scurrilous. Do yourself a favor and buy this album and if you have an opportunity go to a live show. Seriously one of the best live metal performances today.

5.0 out of 5 stars New classic June 3, 2011
By kj77
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I don't generally write reviews, but I had to add my two cents about this album. In my mind, this is by far the most complete PTH release yet (and I loved Fortress) and probably my favorite metal album of the last 3-4 years. Like many albums of the progressive metal genre, it takes several listens to get into. But when you put the headphones on and listen to this album, it is hard to argue that Scurrilous is their creative peak to date. The new lyrics are phenomenal - intelligent, incisive and at times, poignant. And the interplay between the vocal and guitar lines is seamless - this is a fine-tuned machine operating on all cylinders. The rhythms are constantly changing yet catchy as hell. I'm a big fan of Dream Theater, Between the Buried and Me, Symphony X, 3, Into Eternity, etc. To me, this PTH album is the best marriage of nerd rock, virtuoso musicianship, intelligent lyrics but retaining the soul and emotion of the best metal / rock music. Typical progressive bands always seem like they're trying too hard. These songs are very naturally intricate, intelligent, yet visceral at the same time. Absolutely phenomenal album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fortress pt.2.... 4.5 stars!!!! March 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Wow, another fantastic album by otherworldly talents Protest the Hero. The songs here are very similar to their previous album Fortress, but have a more progressive vibe and less super heavy dynamics. That heaviness is still here, growls, screams, math-core chugging craziness, but more subdued than on previous releases. This should get four and a half stars only because Fortress was a musical step up from Kezia, but this is only a small step forward, three years after Fortress, and much of the album sounds lifted from Fortress. The good stuff on this album are some new vocal arrangements and dynamics that really tie songs together, awesome intsrumentation and fantastic drumming. I wish that future vocals include more mid range and low vocals to offset how excellent the higher registers are performed. But all in all, another fantastic album by one of the most talented bands in music today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is very complex and exciting November 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I think it may be the most talented young band of the moment. Evolving their original sound to a little more melodic sound and more progressive . I told a friend that has a cd shop in Barcelona that if he had heard the last cd of PTH and he told me -they was a young band for teenagers metalheads- and I told him we get older and already all the new bands are more younger than us and they could have high quality. PTH is a clear example of very talented young band that although his two previous albums are good with "scurrilous" have touched the sky.I like more this album because it is more serious, mature and growling screamings are gone. A cd that approximates to the musical virtuosity with constant changes of rhythms (that reminds me the Norwegian band SPIRAL ARCHITECT)and a great singer with a versatile voice. The songs are very complex and this makes the cd is one which we must listen attentively sitting or lying on the bed.The production is great. In no time the instruments overlap among them, listening everything perfect.Recommended 100%. Also worthwhile for fans of progressive metal with an open mind.
