Music described as "creepy, tense violin passages giving way to heavy explosions of angular rock." Recent review from DECOY MUSIC reads "...31 minutes of sheer beauty, brawn, and well, almost perfection...the musicianship is so tight, it's uncanny...The vocals are unparelleled...these guys are on a different level than their peers." www.decoymusic.com
Proto, a five-member progressive-rock band from Memphis, moved to Chattanooga in early January 2003 after recording their first EP release with Torrent Records. Shawn West has been drumming now for over ten years with bassist J. Mark Crider. Violinist Krista Wroten was schooled in classical music training at Boston University. Lead guitarist Benjamin Mansfield and singer Erik Berkes have been writing and playing now for over five years. The band as a whole has been together just under three years, but the chemistry and direction are unshakable.
