hit the break to read more about The Protomen and their Mega Man Rock Opera
The Protomen themselves are a very mysterious band. They even stay in character during all interviews and performances. The band's description for how they came to be says "Once, not twice, we stumbled upon each other in a sand pit of chaos in the middle of the state of volunteers. We accidentally delivered the fury from our instruments, and an army was discovered". They want to be a part of the world they are describing, and start the "revolution" through their music.
In order to stay true the classic 8-bit theme of the series, some of The Protomen’s music features original 8-bit sounds. In fact, they even had another musician (Makeup and Vanity Set) remix all of their first album into an 8-bit set, which is definitely worth a listen. The first two albums, “The Protomen” and “Act 2: The Father of Death” are both available for purchase on The Protomen website, and digitally on Itunes.
