Protest the Hero



Take a firm base of post-hardcore, sprinkle on a healthy dose of Arsis-esque melodic technicality and spoon in some power metal pomp and bombast: you now have yourself the basic dough with which Ontario’s finest, Protest the Hero, are baked from, with more ingredients added to flavour the mixture (is anyone else hungry?). Formed at the tender age of fourteen in 1999, PtH are dismissed out of hand by some for their “core” influences (being signed to Vagrant Records doesn’t help much either), when in reality they hold surprising depth, with a wealth of rich lyrical content and unexpectedly mature craftsmanship for so young a band: balancing an instant punch, with hooks so big as to make Peter Pan shit himself against a complexity that invites multiple listens, all the while wearing their influences like cuff links (Coheed and Cambria and Between the Buried and Me to name but two) yet still remaining an entity all their own. The partnership between Rody Walker’s fabulous vocals and Luke Hoskin’s amazing guitar harmonies is a rather brilliant combination if I do say so myself. Musicality is something you don’t often find in modern metal, making Protest the Hero a simple joy for the ears. Ignore them for the scene they populate and miss out on something special: hang up your biases and find something wonderful.

Recommended Works
Kezia (LP): created while the band tried to balance a hectic high school schedule, the record nonetheless sounds polished: a fantastic album, especially for a debut, though more “core” heavy than later works, somewhat showing their age.

Fortress (LP): their second full length and a mighty display of fine song writing, with catchy vocal lines and astounding melodies: a pleasure to behold.

Band Members
Rody Walker – Lead Vocals
Luke Hoskin - Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals
Tim Millar – Rhythm guitar, Backing Vocals, Piano
Arif Mirabdolbaghi – Bass guitar, Backing Vocals
Moe Carlson – Drums

@Link

I see a few minor grammatical errors, and some minor formatting issues, but other than that good post. I'll go ahead and fix it

For the links section, we have a wiki link, last.fm link, and archives link. We never really talked about having a website link, but now that we have posts up we shouldn't change the formatting.

But solid post, I agree with what you said.

Tried it with Firefox, it still isn't working and I have no idea why it isn't working. Do you guys mind if I just leave out the underlining? It's not like it's a big deal if we make an exception with this one post.

learn 2 html

in the html tab, find what you want to underline and do the tags

<u > and end </u >
only without spaces

the same is for this forum, only we use bbcode, wich is far easier and uses brackets

[u] and end [/ u]

The nazi elitist fags at MA refuse to accept PtH: it looks stupid with just 2 links when everyone else is putting 3, hence the inclusion of their offical site...

This is going to be a problem for anyone doing something that is metal related, but not wholly metal. I think as long as you have 2 common links in all posts it wont be too bad.

I fixed it for you man. Just remember it doesn't translate from the forum to the blog, so don't bother to do the links, bolding, and underlining on the forum. Just post the names of the songs and sites you will be posting

Trivium



A lot of true metalheads may not like them. A lot more will hate them. In my personal opininon, Trivium are a fantastic band. They were formed in Sanford, Florida in 1999 by drummer Travis Smith, bassist Brent Young and vocalist Brad Lewter. Lewter saw Matt Heafy play a cover of Metallica's "No Leaf Clover" at a school talent contest and recruited him as a guitarist to complete the line-up. Soon after their formation, Lewter quit the band and Heafy took over as vocalist, as well as playing guitar. In 2003, they recorded their debut album, Ember To Inferno, adding a lead guitarist, Corey Beaulieu. The album received mediocore reception and is probably Trivium's weakest work. However, in 2005 they released, their second album, Ascendancy, which broke them through to major success with its unusually appealing metalcore anthems. However, despite the success of Ascendancy, the band took an entirely different approach with their next album, The Crusade, instead focusing on a thrashy, heavily Metallica influenced sound. After experimenting with these different styles, Trivium seem to have found a steady balance with their latest album, Shogun, which combines elements of thrash and metalcore to make arguably their best album yet. Recently, the band has parted with long-time drummer Travis Smith and recruiting Nick Augusto to tour with them and record their recent song, Shattering The Skies Above. They're soon to start work on a new album, which will hopefully stick to the brilliant formula they seem to have found with Shogun.

Recommended Works
Shogun
This is where Trivium seem to have found their perfect sound. The album is simply fantastic. There's not one boring track and it undoubtably has many songs that will have a constant place in future live shows.

Ascendancy
I don't care if you like metalcore or not. This album is brilliant. It's spawned many of Trivium's most well known songs such as Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr and A Gunshot To The Head Of Trepidation.

The Crusade
The fact that it's pure, shameless Metallica worship doesn't take anything away from the fact that The Crusade is a very enjoyable album. A few of these songs would have been massive if they had been on The Black Album.

Current Members
Matt Heafy - lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Corey Beaulieu - lead guitar, backing vocals
Paulo Gregolatto - bass, backing vocals
Nick Augusto - drums

Former Members
Travis Smith - drums
Brent Young - bass, backing vocals
Brad Lewter - lead vocals

Essential Tracks
Down From The Sky
Shattering The Skies Above
Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr
Throes Of Perdition
Anthem (We Are The Fire)

Blind Guardian


Biography
Blind Guardian is a power metal band from Germany. They originally were under the name of Lucifer's Heritage back in '84, but had to change it because another band had the same name. The original members were Hansi Kursch (vocals) and Andre Olbrich (guitars). Through many changes, they ended up with a line up of Kursch (vocals/bass) Olbrich (guitars) Thomas "Thomen The omen" Stauch (drums) and Marcus Siepen (other guitars). The band then continued, soon they released Battalions of Fear which shows more Speed metal elements then anything. The band continued to make excellent albums, leaning more towards the power metal side of things once Somewhere Far Beyond was released. Before doing that, they released Follow the Blind, a speed metal album which was heavy, but very awesome. The band continued to be very awesome throughout the years, and in 1997 Nightfall in Middle Earth was released which is one of the most well loved and well respected power metal albums. This album was also based on Tolkien's The Silmarillion. However, during this album Hansi dropped bass and gave it to Oliver Holzwarth, who would be somewhat like the "crouching tiger of the band" for he was credited as only a studio and live member. Afterward, Blind Guardian released A Night at the Opera which is based on a Queen album. The band took a much different approach to the point where Thomen got annoyed and left the band. He was replaced by Frederick Ehmke. A few years later, they release A Twist in the Myth which is a pretty good album. They are currently working on the next album, and I suspect it will be very awesome.

Current members
Hansi Kursch (vocals) (1986- Present)
Andre Olbrich (lead guitar) (1986- Present)
Marcus Siepen (second guitar) (1987- Present)
Frederick Ehmke (drums) (2005- Present)
Oliver Holzwarth (So called "session and live member", but he's like the fifth man of the band. He plays bass) (1995- Present)

Previous members
Thomas "Thomen the Omen" Stauch (drums) (1987-2005)
Marcus Dork (guitar, only played during the demo years)
Christoph Theissen (guitar, played during demo years)
Hans Peter Frey (drums, only played during demo years)
Thomas Kelleners (vocals, 1984, don't believe he was included in any albums).

Recommended albums
Albums of Blind Guardian are always awesome, but here are the top guns, the creams of the crop, etc.
Battalions of Fear - The perfect no filler all killer album. This album is a speed metal masterpiece. It combines fast paced guitars, fast drumming and cool vocals all into perfect harmony of melody, rhythm and speed. Choice cuts from the album are Majesty, Run for the night, and pretty much the whole damn thing.

Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Ah, the filler but still killer album. The reason there is filler is because, well, it's needed to tell the story in the album. This is one of the most well received albums by critics, and for a good reason. The melodies are beautiful, the rhythm is fierce, and it is still somewhat fast. It's a tremendous feat. Choice cuts include Into the Storm, Mirror Mirror and Blood Tears.

Follow the Blind - Speed Metal with hints of thrash. This album produced so many beautiful things. From start to finish it's a wild ride. The opening track is actually one of my favorite songs, and this album produced the Power Metal Anthem (Valhalla). Overall, the album is an excellent speed metal choice. Choice cuts are Banish From Sanctuary, Valhalla, and Fast to Madness.

Recommended tracks
Banish From Sanctuary - What can I say? I love everything about this song, the story, the riff, the solos, the vocal hooks, absolutely everything is eargasmic. Heck, the song seems to portray a theme that is quite valuable within itself. Overall a beautiful masterpiece.

Battalions of Fear - Title track off the first album. I love this song as well. Riffs are catchy, vocals are catchy, and the solos are mind blowing! Then again, the album is a no filler all killer!

Mirror Mirror - MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL TRUE HOPE LIES BEYOND THE COAST YOU'RE A DAMNED KIND CAN'T YOU SEE THAT THE WIND WILL CHANGE. Oh my God. The solos, the vocals, the riffs even - Mind blowing, One of the first BG songs I heard so it will always have a special place in my heart.

Bard's Song - If you've ever seen BG live, you'd understand why. If you haven't think of it like this: A ballad that is actually good. And unlike a boring crowd, the crowd can sing half of the song and it always brings joys to many. It's a very good and catchy song as well.

Valhalla - VALHALLA! DELIVERANCE! WHY HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN ME VALHALLA! DELIVERANCE! WHY HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN ME! VALHALLA! DELIVERANCE! WHY HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN ME! OOOOOOH OOOH VALHALLA! Catchy, heavy, awesome riffs, and awesome solos. Crowd favorite, because they chant the chorus for a long time after the song ends. One thing I don't understand is why they leave out one of the solos when they perform it live- that solo is one of the best parts of the song. Still though, awesome 'til the end and seems to be an anthem.

I made a few minor adjustments Dark, it's looking good. Go ahead and throw it up man.

And you guys are welcome to edit things too, and if they look good it's okay to tell the poster to throw it up.

Nevermore



After Rain City legends Sanctuary disbanded in 1991, the subject of a bitter falling out with Epic Records for refusing to partake in the fast emerging Seattle grunge scene, Nevermore rose from the ashes. Featuring the virtuoso talents of Warrel Dane (a trained opera singer) and Jeff Loomis (considered by Dave Mustaine to join Megadeth aged just 16), they ditched the power metal soundscapes of their previous band and built up a unique progressive style: a style that has evolved, becoming more refined as the years have passed. Downtuned rifforama and sweeping leads battle against impassioned vocals, dense rhythms and elements of thrash, bringing speed and complexity while the lyrics tackle strong subject matter (Dreaming Neon Black revolves around the story of Dane's old girlfriend, who left him when she joined a religious cult and was never heard from again: he began having nightmares of her crying out to him as she drowned). Their career highlight was to come in 2005 with the release of “This Godless Endeavor” an aggressive and versatile tour de force, featuring all that defines Nevermore but with the bonus of former Testament guitarist Steve Smyth pairing with Loomis to create an album bursting at the seams with glorious riffs and mesmerising leads. After almost 20 years together, Nevermore are still fighting on the front lines, leading the way for artists like Communic to follow in their footsteps. A band not to be missed.

Recommended Works
This Godless Endeavor (LP): a near perfect masterpiece, riddled with awesome song writing and not a bad song to be found. Among the top 50 metal albums yet recorded in my eyes. An absolute must listen.

Dreaming Neon Black (LP): a rich and dark concept album, ideally enjoyed in one sitting. The creepy narrative makes for some fantastic lyrics.

Enemies of Reality (LP): an altogether thrashier album compared to previous efforts, more focused and aggressive, forgoing some of their progressiveness in favour of raw power. A good starting point to get into the band.

I think Dies quadruple checks his grammar and formatting to preserve his title.

When you write as much as I do proper grammar becomes automatic, you don't even stop to think about it.

There are actually two erroneous commas in my post.

I'm having a little trouble writing for W.A.S.P. It keeps coming out a little choppy. Any input or suggestions would be welcome!:

I do whatever I want to, to ya: I'll nail your ass to the sheets. A pelvic thrust and the sweat starts to sting ya: I fuck like a beast

The city of angels threw out a number of notable glam bands during the 80s boom of cock/shock rock: Mötley Crüe may stand as the most famous, but it was W.A.S.P. (an acronym understood to read “We Are Sexual Perverts”) who shocked most and rocked the hardest. Lead by icon Blackie Lawless (whose inimitable, superb throaty vocals form the heart of W.A.S.P.’s sound) and an ever changing array other musicians, W.A.S.P. play heavy metal, but in the more simplified motif of glam (yet they’re a heavier monster than the likes of KISS). Two years after their formation in 1982 saw the release of the cunningly titled debut “W.A.S.P.”: notoriety was almost instantaneous with single “Animal (Fuck like a Beast)" having to be cut from the North American release. Garnering the attention of political groups, PMRC foremost among them, Blackie would be shot at twice in a campaign against their crude lyrics and lewd live shows of nude models and random meat products. With somewhat inevitable irony, record sales only increased under the attack and an up-phased Lawless would continue to write through the assault and unstable line-up, producing a string of magnificent albums. The afore mentioned instability led to a brief solo career for Blackie (still under the W.A.S.P. name) creating the brilliant “Crimson Idol” record. More recent years have seen an element of sophistication incorporated into their sound with the release of the “Neon God” concept albums. A banner for the metal community, W.A.S.P. are still writing and touring today, Blackie still every ounce the legend of yester year. A foundation in the history of rock, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better band that typifies all that heavy metal is about.

I don't see anything wrong with it, Dies. Looks good to me.
