Album Of The Day: Protest The Hero – Fortress

A bit of proggy metal today by Canadians Protest The Hero. This 2008 release, Fortress, has elements of metalcore, math and even a wee bit of death every now and again. For some reason all I can think of when I hear this is a modern Iron Maiden, I think its the slightly operatic vocal style.

Best song is the lead single and first song on the album Bloodmeat, the music (but definitely not the singing) reminds me of a Converge/Dillinger crossover

And just to show how good his voice actually is, this is Bloodmeat live

Sequoia Throne is worth a mention as well, even if it is just because in the video the singer is rocking an awesome ‘tache. The song also moves through so many styles its unreal.

The full album can be found on Spotify
