Protector  


Protector was part of a strong German thrash scene in the late eighties, with the style on Golem being somewhat in the same ballpark as early Destruction, with some inventive riffing and typical thrash-minded aggression. They folded in early 1994 (by which time no original members were left), though drummer Marco Pape kept the name alive for years afterward, playing the occasional gig with numerous part-timers and even recording a demo in 2000. Finally, original vocalist Martin Missy put together an all-new lineup in 2006, playing gigs as Martin Missy And The Protectors. As of November 2011, that lineup is now officialy the new Protector.
