Fortress, Protest The Hero's latest album, is definitely one of the most anticipated releases this year, which is really hardly a surprise considering what a smash hit their debut excursion into kitchen sink metal, Kezia, turned out to be. Those who enjoyed the band's previous attempt at totally schizophrenic yet catchy music will be happy to hear that, by and large, Fortress is more of the same just better and more mature.

Protest The Hero has a love/hate thing going on... either you like it, or I hate you. Honestly folks, this is one of the best albums I've ever heard. I was a musical virgin going in, and a technicality slut coming out. This is a must hear album.

Rating: 7 If only they started playing metal I might have actually loved it. These guys are too skilled to be fucking around in metalcore.

  Wow, this is most definitely impressive. Although I usually have the propensity to avoid most metalcore, I, ironically, am drawn to this album. The progressive intricacies found in this album are probably the reason.

Fortress is most definitely a testament to metalcore done correctly.

Rating: 10 They won best metal album of the year in Canada with this one for a reason! Don't let the metalcore genre make you instantly hate it. IMO this is not metalcore at all. it's something of a whole new breed. never ending solo metal maybe lol

Because it's metalcore. Just because it's metalcore doesn't mean it's bad

Rating: 10 Can't understand why I didn't give this band a try back when I heard 'Sequioa throne' a few years ago, but this album is leaving me speechless and simply awed. Overstated as that may be, there really isn't anything that the band don't do effectively here. Instrumentation is virtually perfected to bring in new styles that invoke melodic passages (The piano outros on various songs), furiously frantic guitar riffs and mezmerizing drum rhythms. The vocal range here is so varied that I couldn't even believe there was merely one vocalist-his transition between dull, harsh roars and luscious cleans on 'The dissentience' and 'Palms read' really makes for a unqiue collaboration with the other instruments. And at the risk of coming across as an absolute fanboy (This album has now made me one after having listened to it 5 times in a row on the same day), it fits the MS rating I gave-a perfect '10'.

Glad to see you get it

Also a lot of the low growls are done by the bassist, Arif.
