Protest The Hero — Volition

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★★ Everything you could ever want from a PtH album: blistering guitarwork and jerkily progressive rhythms, plus (dare I say it?) a hint of maturity from the otherwise famously immature Rody Walker. In fact, the entire album has surprisingly more depth, breadth, and ambition than I expected to hear (especially the track “Plato’s Tripartite”). Don’t worry, this album also has plenty of classic PtH goofiness and over-the-top virtuosity to satisfy.
