00:37 - Bad English I think Johan and his abnd is prefereing for next Eurovision ,, and I dont miss, JN, Jooe specilly Ilham
00:23 - ScreamingSteelUS I miss Ilham. I think we got along well, and her reviews never ceased to amuse me. Joe I never interacted with, but it seems like he should be here just as a matter of course.
00:16 - Apothecary Ilham I'm friends with off MS, so no worries there. It's Johan I really miss, no idea what's up with him at the moment (and I'm not going to pry, unlike "someone" I could mention)
00:15 - Apothecary I can't say I'm crying over Joe being gone, his music recs are nice, but the site's been a lot quieter without his pedantic comments and attempts to appear as an Argument God every chance he gets
23:58 - Bad English Jooe cant accept Ilham left and he left same time as JN lef´t
23:44 - Jaeryd Where did JOOE go? Haven't seen him around in what seems like ages.
23:04 - Apothecary I guess, double and triple albums really seem to have been becoming a bit of a thing lately, that's part of why I was hesitant to check it out at first because it came off as gimmicky
01. The Descent 02. Make Believe Savior 03. Hordes Of The Damned 04. Oblivious 05. E.N.S.L.A.V.E.D. 06. Nihil 07. Traitor 08. Brutalized 09. Pointless Desire 10. Clench Your Fist At God
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.
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"
Sounds like a nice combination of a number of bands. One of the first things that comes to mind if I were to describe this band's sound: It's a bit like Behemoth with some deathcore and thrash influences. (Behemoth stuff really comes in at 2:40 past)
