"Gracing the stage with the likes of ARKONA, TURISAS, ALESTORM, and BLACKGUARD, Toronto, ON's band of beer drinking progressive folk metallers PROTOKULT return in 2014 with their new album 'No Beer In Heaven'. With a beauty and the beast-like contrast between Ekaterina’s haunting vocals and the band’s metal onslaught, No Beer In Heaven, captures the reformed quintet at an all-time high, showcasing an impressive palette of twelve entirely new compositions, and straps the listener on an adventurous, heavy and experimental trek, diving into themes of drinking, history and human endeavor. The band unites their diverse cultures into one sound, balancing tradition and folklore with heavy, thrash and black metal for headbangers everywhere."
"a superb album. Protokult gives folk-metal a new nice dimension. Their progressive folk-metal approach is a very delicious one. Don’t let the ‘beer-titles’ fool you, the band goals are far beyond beer-humpaa. They’re far more serious, despite of the sometimes quite merry tunes. This is one of the best folk-metal albums I’ve heard this year" - Folk-Metal.nl
"All in all No Beer In Heaven is an extra large package of dark folk metal here to drink and party with you. If you're a folk fan, be sure to give them a listen. The album is a solid piece and an enjoyment to even non-folk fans. Oh, and they also love the 'Water of Life' (that is vodka if you didn't know already)." - Two Guys Metal Reviews
