Resistance Release New EP ‘Volume 1 – Battle Scars’

Resistance Release New EP ‘Volume 1 – Battle Scars’ via Metal Machine Records

Formed in 2000, RESISTANCE are a Los Angeles based Power/Heavy Metal band delivering a full on Metal assault from a broad range of influences. The new EP “Volume 1 – Battle Scars” is now available worldwide via new label, Metal Machine Records. The band signed with Finland’s Lion Music in 2004 and released two critically acclaimed albums: “Lies In Black” (2004) conceptual Metal masterpiece “Patents Of Control” (2007).

Now, in 2015, RESISTANCE are back with a vengeance releasing the first in a volume of EPs with “Volume I – Battle Scars”. This new release brings the Los Angeles Metal machine back to their roots for a more traditional approach to their music and lyrical content, but maintains a modern sound and feel. The new EP is the first to be released on the bands own record label Metal Machine Records, and is also the first to feature new guitarist Burke Morris. The concept behind releasing a volume of shorter length EPs, is to facilitate the quick release of material to the band’s fans and build a collection of music which can be combined later into a single body of work. RESISTANCE drops the sonic hammer on the Metal community and fans of the band will not be disappointed. The songs on “Volume I – Battle Scars” are of the caliber you would expect from these Metal troubadours and will leave you waiting for “Volume II”.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
