Together since their teens, the all-original members of Canadian band Protest the Hero have had a long time to hone their chops. The result is a complex style of metal that owes as much to progressive rock like Rush as it does to punk and hardcore. Their two albums for punk/emo label Vagrant have made a major splash across genre lines, combining breakneck technical twists and turns with passionate melodies. An appearance on the Vans Warped Tour, with kindred spirits Between the Buried and Me and Unearth, among others, has broken them internationally.
