i recently got into them. sorry, the singer just didn't do it for me before. but now i like them. a lot. they're awesome. but imo 'fortress' isn't as great as 'kezia'. but, like i said, i just got into them. maybe with some more time, i'll love it as much as the first album. still can't wait for this record tho. MIGHT go to the orlando show.

ya nothinghead i have to agree with u, Kezia is much more superior to Fortress. Wretch on fortress is their heaviest dong i found, but nothing compares to listening to Kezia from start to finish and feeling closure from start to finish. Not like a lot of bands who just jumble their tracks together (which isnt bad, but i like to listen from track 1 to ?? for the full experience.) Kezia has that, its amazing hahaa

They're both awesome, but Gallop Meets the Earth is the best. I'm in the crowd on the album, and for me Protest is all about the live show. Hopefully I can make it to two of those shows and make it seven times I've seen them lol.
