When prepping for this you should do two things: 1. Bubble wrap your shit and 2. put that neck brace your doctor gave you after that golfing accident on. We've got the most convulsive movements-inducing brutal tunes of 2012 so far on our hands here. That's just an objective fact.
Resistance are a Belgian, deathcoreish death metal outfit that you've all forgotten about. Even after Thryce's awesome review of their last album from a couple years ago. And shame on everyone for that. These guys are better at what they do than a large chunk of modern death acts. Think Benighted meets a stack of waffles, a slightly higher GDP, and deathcore. Don't mean breakdown + breakdown + tortured pig vox + breakdown deathcore either, I mean stomp around and flail your arms because it's brutal deathcore. The good kind.
Or maybe think Aborted meets better songwriting.
There are some weak tracks here to be sure, and the endless, clicky-sounding double bass work gets pretty annoying after a while. A little more speed occasionally would have been nice too. But in the end, it's a good example of modern death metal/deathcore blending done properly. So cheers to this thing.
Stand-out tracks: "Traitor", "Nihil", and "Make Believe Savior"
