Protest The Hero - Heretics And Killers Single Review
Protest The Hero
Heretics And Killers
Formed by five friends when they were 14, this Ontario band has recently toured with Bullet For My Valentine in the UK and have previously shared a stage with Trivium. They liken themselves to Coheed and in 2004 won the award for Best Indie Metal Band at the Indie Music Awards.
Taken from the debut album "Kezia", this single is painful in its combination of the worst aspects of metal. Thrashing guitars unsuccessfully try to combine with soft melodies, while the vocals range from tender to indecipherable screaming and growls. The band manage to make three minutes seem like an eternity of sonic torture and are best avoided.
