PRESENTED BY SELECT TOURING AND BLUE MURDER
PROTEST THE HERO have carved an identity for themselves [pullquote]“The bombastic madness that is Protest The Hero is packed with unbelievable guitar hooks with technical metal firing at you like a machine gun and quite frankly their tracks are masterpieces.” – Bring The Noise UK[/pullquote] 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 wanton tomfoolery and masterful musicianship with true songcraft.
Their latest offering Pacific Myth channels the bands usual hard-hitting sound and remains true to their signature style with overtly complex riffs and eccentric vocal arrangements. The band explained, “Pacific Myth was purely an experiment. For this reason, it’s a totally ‘go-with-your-gut’ record and one we are extremely proud of. PROTEST THE HERO continue to push the boundaries of metal and widen their creative scope that has fans in a frenzy.
Don’t miss one of the most entertaining live bands in metal!
“Pacific Myth is musically excellent and sporadically superb.” – Sputnik Music
“Melodic memorable guitar licks, soaring vocals by Rody Walker, and unmatched musical technicality. They’ve never been a band to ease you into a record, but the band seems particularly ready to kick the listeners ass here from the get-go.” – Metal Injection
“Canada’s are known for their prolific breed of progressive, rip-your-face-off-and-mosh-on-it metal” – Alternative Press
