Protest The Hero - Fortress

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Sonic_Death, Feb 20, 2008.


  1. So how many other people are digging this album?

    I have been listening to it a lot since the day it came out and can't get enough of it. I liked their previous release, Kezia, but I think this album is definitely a big step up. I was upset that I didn't hear as many backing vocals from Arif, but his great basslines make up for it.

    The vocals have definitely improved, and I think they are a lot more solid in their approach to the music. Plus the actual lyrical content was very refined and interesting, it was a good concept album.

    Feel free to discuss, and if you have not heard of Protest The Hero before, they are a very good band who I would define was a mix of Metalcore, Prog Metal, and Hardcore.
     
  2. Cool! I didn't even know they had a new album out. I really liked Kezia so I'm gonna be buying this one soon. Arif is definitely an awesome bassist.

    Lovin' this album, Palms Read!! I like that Acoustic towards the end of Bone Marrow also. Arif is just a monster on Fortress ( as always ).

    This and Meshuggah's new album have been getting heavy rotation for me.

    I got tired of the 80´s pop-metal-voice the guy had at times..

    Great album. Whenever I listen to it I have to listen to the whole thing. Great flow. Arif is a beast.
     
  9. I think the vocalist is actually one of the best out there from the whole metalcore thing. I mean, he can actually sing and hit those notes and yet he can also growl which is awesome.

    So I shouldn't feel like a chump for not being able to play these parts? Good, ok, I'm satisfied ...:meh:

    Haha no I really like the album though, and the bass parts. Hopefully I'll be nailing them someday soon.

    great stuff! i stay away from most bands like this just because it's overdone and there's a serious lack of creativity and originality (IMO), but these guys have got the goods! me likey!

    Yes, PTH fans on TalkBass!
    I've been listening to this album for a couple months now. It's a lot more balls-out than Kezia, and more technical. Arif does a great job, too. I'm curious to see how he develops as a player and PTH as a band in the future.
     
  13. PTH is just great !!!
    Fortress went more to the metal, less hardcore than kezia. Not as catchy as Kezia was but still a great album, and with more technical skills.
    Bloodmeat is there best song (IMO), I couldn't believe you could do something so bad ass with pentatonics and a diminished fifth (blues scale).
