Let's not get carried away.
2 great moments:
The "pissing against the tree while being sung to".
As the heavy part hits at the end, "everyone get out of the van".
I also love when they just stand there awkwardly during the actually very emotionally-sung lyrics around 3:50 And the playing guitar while in a go cart, oh lawl
I could keep going
That video is fucking great. Metal isn't dead, but I would say that Protest the Hero is the only band I give a fuck about that's keeping the "fun"/lighter spirit of 80's heavy metal alive. I fucking love that. Every other good metal band nowadays is preoccupied with making the darkest most brutalestest shit ever, which is cool but makes PTH all the more unique.
On second thought, I'd also put Slough Feg in that category, but that's it.
also: holy fuck @ tim's lack of hair. it must have felt amazing to get rid of it all.
^no kidding, he looks like a new member
And Boys of Battle, of course
Came across this the other day- Arif destroys the guy.
Jesus Christ does the end of that interview piss me off. I'm raging right now.
That guy is a fucking douchebag anyway. I share a couple mutual friends with him and have met him in person, and he is extremely self-absorbed and really conceited. Fuck Matte Babel. Can't even spell MATT properly.
how to not conduct an interview
I think it would be cool if Katy Perry guested on a PTH song.
They handled themselves incredibly well through such a totally shitty interview.
been listening to this a lot lately, finally started to click with me. probably better than fortress but nothing touches kezia. hair trigger is just... fuck
I think the songwriting on Scurrilous is pretty amazing and much better than the other two, but the only thing it's missing is that every single song on Kezia and Fortress has one section where I go "HOLY FUCKING SHIT". Scurrilous doesn't, but I think the songs are better crafted.
It's a fucking great album, but yeah it's missing that SUPAH EPIC THING! thing.
Like the breakdown in Bloodmeat, raise your glass etc.
Scurrilous is not as catchy either.
Yeah man. There's more balance but there isn't one moment which is like the end of "Turn Soonest The Sea" or DAT breakdown in Bloodmeat.
Scurrilous is catchy though, it's just not as bombastic! C'est La Vie sticks in your head, so does the end of Hair Trigger.
oh yeah, definitely has it's catchy moments. But I feel they are sparse compared to their other albums
come on dudes
the end of Dunsel, and C'est La Vie, and Tongue-Splitter, and Tandem. Hell, the start of Dunsel, too.
Not feeling it man. Could be more epic on all counts. Even the Jadea Kelly bits on Kezia are > the ones on Scurrilous.
The contexts she comes in on are v. different on the two albums so I don't compare them.
I'm glad I'm not one of you dorks who doesn't think scurrilous has epic shit
Album of the year
No one was saying that Scurrilous doesn't have "epic shit" but the point was that they weren't AS "epic" as some stuff from Kezia and Fortress.
Hair-Trigger has my favorite epic shit so far
Protest have one of the highest quotas of epic shit out of any band and the best thing is they simply couldn't give a fuck about it.
EDIT: Jamming Fortress right now and I'm up to Palms Read and that song on its own has more outrageously epic shit than all of the second half of Scurrilous.
I don't see why the album not having "epic shit" makes it less interesting, or makes you like it less.
No one can deny that the album has amazingly solid musicianship and songwriting. The lyrics, well... whatever.
scurrilous lyrics are abysmal.
There are a couple of "meh" lyrical moments but for the most part they're awesome per usual.
Dunsel and Tongue-Splitter especially.
lyrics are not so bad, as soon as i started understanding the metaphors, it got a bit better.
I mean, hair-trigger being about cigarettes is still kinda gay, but it makes them better at least.
I heard you don't like this album.
Son, I am disapoint.
I am too, trust me.
but iz guud!
C'est La Vie's lyrics are amazing. So many really sharp lyrical turns. but the rest are ordinary. Especially Tandem.
They are awful, for sure.
Holy fuck. best music video ever. Rody turning around and zipping up after taking a leak up a tree
Hot damn, I hadn't even checked this out since Fortress was so lame but I'm actually really liking what I hear.
Lol @ calling Fortress lame
Let's not go there, but Fortress fucking slays Kezia
lol at the very beginning when he tries to jump over the gate. Also at the sack whack @ 1:00.
Completely agree although I've been on a huge Kezia kick recently. I've always thought the overall sound of the album was weird in terms of production and the drums are super same-y.
Yeah, the drums at the start of each song sound pretty much the same which is a bit annoying.
Kezia > Fortress
yyea lets not like go there
the riffs on Fortress > the riffs on Kezia
Kezia is still better
