Still, what separates Protest the Hero from bands like Rise Against is their instrumental talent. Also, say what you will about the clean vocals, they're still some of the best vocals out there in that type of genre.

    And their first album (although technically an EP) was A Calculated Use of Sound. It was much closer to early AFI than anything they've done since. Roddy has credited Propaghandi for their evolution into metal.
    I 100% agree with this, their musical talents are a million times better. Just my opinion I'm not crazy about the cleaner sound and was grasping for something similar.

    Thanks, wanted to look it up.

I can't wait for the next Trenches album, and hopefully it will highlight Jimmy's vocals better, and more hopefully yet, they'll actually tour.
    Agreed, they would've been much better for it. I thought Attack of the Wolf King was a nice return to what they are good at though.

    Heard that Trenches is the band he left to and I agree many of the songs have the same pace and melodic feel, hopefully they change it up a little more.

    Yeah but at the same time, if you're gonna name your
    band name after an old band name, ya gotta know
    there's gonna be some people saying... REALLY?!?
    *Especially* if the name you chose, is shared with
    a band that was notoriously awful.

    And this is the internet age. A two second Youtube
    search will tell someone what bands are already out
    there with a certain name.

    Of course the other possibility is, they were aware
    of the Billy Joel travesty, thought it was hilarious,
    and named their band accordingly.

    "Attila" seems pretty much "taken" all the way around:

    Winds of Plague are one of those bands I didn't care for as far as recorded material, but they kill live. Some bands, after seeing them live, I love the recorded stuff then too. Weirdly, with WoP, I have no desire to own any of their music. But I'll see 'em live at the drop of a hat!

    Jesse Leach is the man. I love everything he does. KSE were great when he was their singer. Times of Grace, Seamless, KSE, and Empire Shall Fall is my favorite of his. I'm excited to hear the new KSE album since he has re-joined.

    I've been out of the "game" for awhile TBh, and while I knew who Winds of Plague was I never really heard any of their music. You're totally right though, they killed it live. I went for ABRB (especially since they played with the original line up), but WoP was awesome.

    Good to know about their studio stuff thanks! I Was going to go buy their albums haha

    Just to be clear, I'm not saying MOST people would not care for
    their studio stuff. You might thinks it's great. It could very
    well be some little idiosyncrasy of my own. I'd say give the
    recorded stuff a try. You may like it just fine.

    It's just, to me, their live sound is so layered, and it comes out
    from the stage in sonic waves. That just doesn't come through
    on the recorded stuff to me, and it's just not the same IMO.
    Either they play completely differently in studio, or they
    need a different producer!
