Protocol IX is a modern metalband from Flanders, Belgium that was founded in the summer of 2004. Back then the band was primarily influenced by Machine Head and Korn. After their first demo the evolved to a more varied mix of groove, melody, hooks and agression. Think a mix of thrash metal, metalcore and nu-metal with different twist. One year after the founding of the band, the first demo“Redemption” was finished, and the band received good reactions.
