Playing Kezia, in its entirety.

Life goal: achieved.

For those unfamiliar; Protest the Hero are a metal band. Kezia is their first full-length album.

It's also a concept album, about a woman slated for execution. Told from the perspective of the prison chaplain, a prison guard, and the woman herself (the eponymous Kezia). Music may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the lyrics can be read here. And are worth a read-through.

To put it simply... the album is a gigantic condemnation of the way women are commodified and objectified and depersonified in society.

Lyrics sample from Turn Soonest to the Sea )
