Rorschach - Protestant


From: USA
Year: 1993
Genre: Hardcore Punk/Metal

What’s up everyone, this is my first post on Celebutards and I’m starting things off with one of my favorite albums of all time. This album had a huge effect on the hardcore scene in the early 90’s, influencing countless bands and further bridging the gap between hardcore punk and metal. Granted there were many crossover albums in existence before this album came out but no one did it like they did. There’s something for everyone here- dissonant guitar (think Voivod or Die Kreuzen), slow sludgy parts, blast beats, odd time changes/signatures, relentless screaming, punk attitude/aggression and its all wrapped up in a sloppy metal bow. Members went on to spawn the incredible Deadguy and Kiss it Goodbye, among others.
