w ambient hardcore & progressive metal on the rise (LIGHT BEARER, GENERAL LEE) it is hard to distinguish who exactly is worthy of scoping out during the tight-knit schedule that you so enthusiastically dedicate to playing MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3 for 12 hrs straight (trust me, it’s a shared reality). lucky for you nihilist wastes, i am here to inform you of the sleepless golem that will earthshake you into post-metal-mortem: PROTOLITH – an oscillating landslide unified by the creation of their debut album entitled “LIGHT”. now, despite the inclination to furiously bob my head until it rolls off my shoulders, i am torn by the animantium claws of contrasting juxtaposition. a sense of emptiness and despair definitely transpires through PROTOLITH’s groovy discords which honestly captures my attn all the more, convincing me this isn’t just another masquerade of mosh mimicry. PROTOLITH provides an addicting alchemic recipe for gold, i can only hope its value increases w plans slated to release a follow-up record entitled “DARK” later this year.
