Album Review

Protestant – “Reclamation” – [Halo of Flies]

mickeyslim   1/29/2013   12-inch, A Library

Dark, doomy, daring, dynamic, and many other words starting with the letter “D.”

Seriously hardcore straight from the depths of Lake Michigan, or at least the Milwaukee area… Brian?? Morrison on drums, Chris Ellis on guitar, Jesse Smith on bass and Cory VonBohlen on vocals and other guitar. Self proclaimed as “dark hardcore punk,” they start with fast drum beats, and melodic distortion f rom the guitars almost to the point of sounding pretty. Vocals sounds like Howlin’ Wolf singing metal… Check out the liner notes for the story behind the track Jan Palach (or look it up online, pretty cool) but don’t read the rest of it (kinda lame.)

PGM: short transitions between tracks, FCC on A2 (but it’s unintelligible, so, go ahead, I’m not listening to your show….)
