Biography

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 ...

Volition is the fourth full-length studio album by the Canadian band Protest The Hero. It was released in 2013 through Razor & Tie, and was produced by Cameron McLellan. Due to the departure of longtime drummer Moe Carlson, the drums on the album were handled by Lamb Of God's Chirs Adler. He actually really suits the band and if you hadn't been told you mightn't realize the drummer had changed, although that being said, on some songs if you pay attention you can definitely tell that its Adler playing.

On the band's previous record, the track 'Dunsel' had some pretty scathing lyrics about the music industry, and it seems that the band have followed through, as this album was funded by the band's fans through a crowd-sourcing campaign on Indiegogo. Luckily relying on donations has not resulted in any noticeable dip in recording, mixing or packaging quality and the record was made well with no cut corners. Musically the band are just as strong as ever and there is similarly no dip at all.

If you haven't heard the band before and don't know what to expect, words won't really do it justice. The band flits wildly between genres and subgenres at great speed and don't fit neatly into any one category for too long. There are moments that will remind you of Math, Technical and Progressive styles due to the virtuosity, complexity or sheer speed, that are then interspersed with gloriously catchy radio-friendly moments, spiced with a few harsh death vocals, augmented by occasional riffs that remind you a little of At The Gates and many other things besides. You really just have to hear it to understand it.

The intro to `Skies' sounds almost like Animals As Leaders, Scale The Summit or the post-millennial King Crimson works.

The transition from Fortress to Scurrilous made it seem like the band had peaked, but with the release of Volition it is clear that they have a lot more to offer.

The album has a very varied set of songs, with styles varying from the Periphery-like intro in 'Tilting against Windmills' to the acoustic outro in 'Plato's Tripartite', the band continues to amaze with this great album.

The guitar work is as technical as ever, but it feels far more coordinated in this album than it did in the last. Rody's singing continues to improve, I absolutely love his voice and it is showcased really well in this album, and the input from other singers in some songs sounds great.

I would definitely recommend this album to anyone who enjoyed any of Protest's previous music, or any fans of metal, prog, punk etc.

After hearing the first song released from the album, 'Clarity,' I wasted no time in pre-ordering the album; I was not in the least bit disappointed. From the opening track onwards, each and every song has been expertly written, with some of the most interesting and bewildering guitar lines as well as some of the best vocals Protest have released this album is a 'must have' for any fan of the band. With the departure of Moe Carlson I (among others) was eager to hear how well Chris Adler lived up to his predecessor, and again was not disappointed, the drums were neither to simple nor too overpowering, anyone who has Adler pegged as a simple 'tub thumper' should rethink their views. And of course Arif's bass lines are again, a joy to hear. My only criticism is that there is little variation in the texture and feel of the songs, though the brief interludes in songs like Mist go along way to keep the album from becoming boring. I would highly recommend this release to any fan of progressive and melodic metal styles.
