Studio 52 Featured Band of the Week: Protean Collective


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Studio 52 Spotlight: Protean Collective

What Studio 52 Says: Last month progressive metal entity Protean Collective dropped their third studio album — and the 10 new tracks did not disappoint. Collapse, the Boston band’s first release since 2014, is a true prog metal masterpiece, boasting powerful clarity and an extraordinary attention to detail. This comes as no surprise to seasoned listeners, as their previous recordings have a way of keeping your head banging and jaw dropped simultaneously. With their signature ethereal vocal melodies over powerful guitar tones and driving drum beats, they walk a tightrope strung between heavy and catchy. Protean Collective will be celebrating the new release this weekend alongside Boston’s own Powerglove, a video game themed speed metal band. With progressive folk metal quintet Wilderun — also hailing from Boston — kicking the night off, this show is a can’t miss for metal fans and video gamers alike. Head over to Spotify or iTunes to check out the entire Protean Collective catalog and get stoked for the show Saturday (August 12) at Brighton Music Hall, Allston’s go-to venue for must see shows in its own back yard. — Trevor McSweeney, Studio 52
