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.
