Protest The Hero - Kezia
I don’t know if this style has been around already, but to my knowledge this band is the first one I discovered that combine emo with mathcore. So that stands for highly technical music accompanied by mainly clean vocals. Let us discover if this formula works out.
 
I say a big fat yes. I works like hell. Highly technical math-like rhythmical parts played on surely not severy down-tuned guitars accompanied by nice (but less complex) drums. This is for all the Avenged Sevenfold fans who felt slightly gay listening to that band. Here’s something that exceeds that band on every front, except for the drums of course.
 
The vocals are the only thing that make me doubt about how cool I find this band. They’re sung all right, but it’s that typical emo singing that sounds the same with every emo band. Like a friend of mine said, it’s like they don’t think about their vocals lines, they just sing the first thing that comes to mind and suits the music more or less without exploring he possibilities of some riffs. That is what makes a good singer now isn’t it?
Fortunately there are still some nice hardcore screams here and there to make it not all too batty I guess.
 
Again I think this a band you should hear to be actually able to discover what the hell they’ve created. I think it’s something quite unique and that’s something that’s getting harder and harder to do these days. They’ve found a working combination of two styles and I always can respect that. Oh yeah, did I mention all members are nineteen years old? That makes it even more WOW!
