Album of the Week: Scurrilous

Only three days old and already proving to be one of the most ambitious metal releases this year. Scurrilous is the third studio album from the canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero.

There's a more personal approach this time, considering their more mysterious previous release, Fortress, which I'll certainly promote here in the near future. I reckon the more personal lyrics will appeal to the majority of listeners pretty easy. The riffing on the other hand is what made Protest the Hero a big hit among (but not limited to) musicians, and it's still a schizofrenic and technical rollercoaster ride throughout the whole album.
I encourage everyone to give this a listen and especially progressive metal fans who somehow haven't discovered this epic gem yet. Beneath is a link to one of their Youtube-releases from the new album, aswell as an link to the album.
