My posts lately have been mostly centered around jam bands and the like, so today I would like to depart from the norm and talk about one of the few remaining acts in metal that isn't garbage. Canadian spaz-rockers Protest the Hero have finally unveiled that their new album, entitled Volition, will be hitting shelves on October 29th. If you are a fan of heavy music at all, you should already know about this, as Protest is one of the most original and consistently innovate bands out there. The insane talent of these guys is almost overwhelming, but after three consecutive incredible albums, they've proven themselves as one of the preeminent names in good metal. Like I said, if you're at all into heavy music, you need to be aware of this. Check out some more of the details at their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/protestthehero. It promises to be a doozy of a record. Oh, and I forgot to mention their North American tour beginning in November. Dates haven't been released yet, so keep your ears to the ground for more info.
