Protector To Release New Album In February

Legendary German Thrashers PROTECTOR To Release New Album In February



After their successful return with “Reanimated Homunculus”, PROTECTOR deliver the second full-length album of the not-so-new millennium. Music-wise, PROTECTOR keep their boat sailing steadily on the seas of Thrash Metal, with some visits to the “Death Metal Island”. Vocalist Martin Missy puts it thus: “I think that fans who liked “Reanimated Homunculus” will like “Cursed And Coronated” as well. “That’s a safe guess, as the band stay true to themselves with evil, fast, cutting and slicing old school Thrash in the true PROTECTOR vein”.


“Cursed And Coronated” will be released on High Roller Records on February 26, 2016, and will be available as CD and limited edition vinyl LP.


The album was recorded in May of 2015 in the Sunlight Studio in Norrtälje, Sweden. And for the rest, the PROTECTOR crew remembered to never change a winning team: again the producer is Tomas Skogsberg, the mastering was done by the Patrick W. Engel, and the cover artwork stems once again from prolific artist Kristian Wåhlin. Just as on the previous album, PROTECTOR again offer a mix of both older and new material: “Three of the songs already appeared on demos and split-singles between 2011 and 2013, while seven of the songs are brand new”.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
