More Info:

Protector are widely regarded as one of the most underrated outfits from the prolific German thrash/death scene of the Eighties. Their debut-EP "Misanthropy" from 1987 is a thorny gem of uncompromising thrash metal, raw and fast, and with a strong feel of evil blackness. This first official release laid the base for Protector's reputation as "Germany's most brutal band", as some people called them. Protector Really Some band from some far out place in Lower Saxony It's true, Protector never rose to the same heights of fame as Kreator, Sodom and the likes, but back in the days, they made a name for themselves by playing not only fierce and sharp thrash metal, but always being extremely harsh, brutal and very very evil. "Misanthropy" is a perfect testimony for this: In it's six-tracks-brevity, Protector's debut-EP is a violent attack on the listener, giving you six razor sharp cuts and leaving you behind, crushed and bleeding. "Misanthropy" was recorded in the summer of 1987 at the White Lines Studio in Braunschweig. While the band's main influences at that time were Slayer's "Reign in Blood", Possessed's "Seven Churches" and Exodus' "Bonded by Blood", "Misanthropy" actually sounds like none of these albums - but very unique; In part this is due to Martin Missy's extraordinary extreme vocal performance, which always bordered on the verge of death metal growls and thus added a lot to Protector's very own way of evil.
