The Thrash / Death Metal band PROTECTOR was formed in the summer of 1986 in the german city of Wolfsburg. In the end of the same year they recorded their first demo. In the eight years that followed, the band recorded two EP's and four LP's. They played live all over Europe, among others with SODOM, KREATOR, WEHRMACHT, NAPALM DEATH and TANKARD. During the first years of its existance PROTECTOR also went through several line-up changes. In 1994 the band decided to take a break for about one year. When that year had passed only drummer Marco Pape was motivated enough to continue the work with PROTECTOR, and did so together with three new bandmembers. This version of PROTECTOR existed until around 2002/2003. In the end of the year 2005 former PROTECTOR vocalist Martin Missy, together with the swedish musicians Carl-Gustav Karlsson (drums - among others GRIEF OF EMERALD and MASTEMA), Michael Carlsson (guitar - MASTEMA) and Mathias Johansson (bass – vocals in SUICIDAL WINDS and AXIS POWERS), formed the PROTECTOR-coverband MARTIN MISSY AND THE PROTECTORS, with which they played live all around Europe until 2011. In the end of that year they decided to officially reactivate PROTECTOR again and to record a demo called "The Return of Thrash and Madness". In september 2013 "Reanimated Homunculus", Protectors first studio-album since 1993, was released by High Roller Records. Three years later Protector released another album on High Roller Records ("Cursed and Coronated").
