Insider faves Protest The Hero have announced their first live CD/DVD, titled Gallop Meets The Earth, set for release on September 15 on Vagrant Records. The 2-disc set will include HD-shot footage of the band’s sold-out headlining concert at the Sound Academy in Toronto from December 2008.
What caught our attention was the fact that the entire show will be presented in full 5.1 surround-sound audio. You don’t see 5.1 mixes come around too often for metal bands, but if any band suits the format, it’s PTH and their extreme technical prowess.
later todaytomorrow (what do you want, we’re busy) as we plan to post our must-buy 5.1 mixed metal albums. Got anything you’d like to see on that list? Let us know in the comments and hit the jump for full details on Gallop Meets The Earth.

02. No Stars Over Bethlehem
04. The Dissentience
