Scurrilous is the third full-length studio album by the Canadian band Protest The Hero, it was produced by Julius Butty and released in 2011.

Protest The Hero's incredible artistic strength lies in three main fields:
1. The incredibly precise, technical and virtuosic playing of complex material that's both impressively written and bafflingly structured, without ever feeling gimmicky.
2. Really unique and characterful lyrics that actually have something to say, but manage to stay entertaining with a colurful mixture of insight and clever phrasing.
3. Larger-than-life "moments" that elevate songs beyond the sum of their parts and cause you to really smile.

Scurrilous delivers on all three fronts and not only contains the trademark style-in-the-mixture-of-styles style that you would expect from the band, but manages to elevate and refine the band's songwriting skills as well, leaving a satisfying and entertaining album on a gut level and one that you can listen to time and again to study the jarring tempo changes and all the neat little touches its so jam packed with.

Now; Protest The Hero are one of the only bands going who can convincingly go from sounding like Dream Theater to Carcass to Fallout Boy in the space of a single verse without sounding contrived or cheesy. Sometimes its almost like listening to what Coheed And Cambria would sound like if they had a sudden desire to get closer to the spirit of both Sikth and Dillenger Escape Plan, and yet also early In Flames, without loosing any of their summery catchiness or ear for good melodies.

This was my first contact with the music of Protest the Hero and boy, was it a ride.
Protest the Hero have made an amazing album that doesn't really fail at any point. From the breakneck speed, through the slightly vulgar but nonetheless interesting lyrics, ending with catchy and attention demanding vocal performance from Rody Walker.
The piece opens with C'est la Vie, an anti-suicide song I take it. The lyrics are quite straight-forward. The music is just what you'd expect from PTH. The riffs are stellar - they give a feeling of being swung by waves of a powerful ocean: left, right, left, right and so on. Rody Walker's vocal delivery is truly amazing - from his
usual singing voice (quite high) to his screams.
Hair-Trigger is quite an interesting one. Riffs here are more rhytmic than the song before. Lyrics seem to tell a story about manipulation and repentance. Rody does a really good job on the delivery again.
Tandem was criticised by some as simple and insensitive lyrics wise - it's about cancer, and it does deal with the subject using simple words. There's nothing wrong with being simple here, in my opinion the lyrics don't lack anything. They're fine as they are. The music here is a bit less attention catching than on the two first tracks, it is still, however, very good.
Moonlight features a number of interesting riffs and some deeper lyrics. Of course Rody does fine on the delivery. It is really a track you can't say much about while it still is a pleasent listen.
Tapestry is another one that deals with the life subject. This time it's about not using your life at all. The vocals on this one are really stellar. The riffs give off a feeling of irritation and anger, as if the band is trying to say "we hate those suckers who waste their lifes".

I admit, I am a relatively new listener when it comes to Protest.
I was grabbed instantly by 'Bloodmeat' the opening track of their 2007 effort 'Fortress'. This song was mind boggling from start to finish. Cryptic lyrics, bizarre timing signatures, and led by a vocalist with a truly impressive range.
I knew I had to hear more from this band, and quickly became obsessed with 'Fortress' and to a lesser extent, 'Kezia'.
'Kezia' is a brilliant debut, but you can tell that the band were still finding their feet, and whilst impressively technical 'Fortress' was a huge step up on every level.
So now we arrive at 'Scurrilous', the band's 2011 release.

The first track 'C'est La Vie' erupts instantly. No fade ins, just BOOM. Vocalist Rody Walker tells us to "Learn to let loose" as he continues his vocal assualt alongside a quartet of incredibly skilled musicians.
'C'est La Vie' would have sat nicely on Fortress, it has that unpredicatible nature that we have come to expect from the band and is an outstanding opener to the album.
Nothing much has changed musically. It is noticeably tighter, with each member stepping up their game in their own respective ways.
This is not the progression 'Kezia' made to 'Fortress', but simply the sound of a band who have spent the last 4 years mastering their craft. Having said that, the progression is there and you can tell that this is Protest The Hero's most accomplished work to date.

'Hair Trigger' opens with a brilliant tapping riff on the lead guitar, and the song's power never ceases.
The biggest improvement on this album is Rody's vocals, and this is evident in this song and notably 'Tapestry'.
