Over the course of three albums, Canada’s Protest the Hero have carved out a niche for themselves in the crowded metal market. Progressive, heavy, melodic are three words that come to mind in describing the band. They’ve upped the ante for Volition, their fourth album. It’s a bit more dynamic, and finds the band writing the closest thing to traditional songs that the band has done. While you’ve already gotten a chance to hear a bit of the album, now you can listen to the whole thing. If you’re one of the many that donated to their Indiegogo campaign, you can hear your money at work. Is this the band’s finest hour? Listen and decide for yourself.
Volition is released on October 29th, and if you’re so inclined, you can pre-order it here.
