The Protomen – An Indie Rock Opera

The Protomen are one of those bands that live the indie ethic and embrace modern technology like the internet to help them get along in the music world.  If you haven’t heard of them, you don’t spend enough time on the internet.  The Protomen are a rock opera indie band known to create concept albums out of stories based on the hit video game series Mega Man.

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, The Protomen are an indie supergroup of sorts, pulling members from multiple bands in the Nashville indie scene.  They use stage names to seperate themselves from their other bands, each one based on something pop-culture related.

Currently, they have two albums telling the tales of Mega Man.  The first album, Act I (The Protomen) which tells the story of Protoman and Megaman.  It’s clear on first listen that it is a rock album, but it incorporates electronics in the form of chiptune.  The second album Act II (The Father Of Death) is a prequel to the story in Act I.

Slated for a late 2011/early 2012 release is a cover album, a recording of the many covers they perform live on stage.  You can check out their website at http://www.protomen.com/.
