These guys are awesome. I first started listening to them about a year or so ago. They have two albums out, their self titled The Protomen(2005) and their follow-up Act II- The Father of Death(2009). There style is hard to pin down. They draw influence from a number of genres including 70’s-80’s rock, metal, spaghetti western, blues etc.
Their albums are rock operas with a very distinct story line that is loosely based on the megaman video game series. The band presents a much darker and grittier story line than is presented in the game. Even if you haven’t played the megaman video games, the music and story are quality enough to speak for themselves.
