There are three bands named The Resistance

1. The Resistance is a band featuring former members of In Flames, The Haunted and Grave. Their music is similar to Swedish death metal legends Dismember and Entombed, combined with influences from and .


Marco Aro - vocals (Face Down, The Haunted)
Jesper Strömblad - guitar (ex In Flames, Dimension Zero)
Glenn Ljungström - guitar (ex In Flames, Dimension Zero)
Alex Losbäck Holstad - bass (ex Despite, Decameron, Cardinal Sin)

Chris Barkensjö - drums (Carnal Forge, Godsic, ex Grave)

2. The Resistance were a Selkirk, Manitoba band.

Some bands find instant success, however for Selkirk, Manitoba’s The Resistance it’s been an uphill battle, and with the likes of Propagandhi, Comeback Kid and the Weakerthans hailing Winnipeg as home; the Resistance have some big shoes to fill. With their debut full length album, Revenge On The Riverside, The Resistance have shown that they intend to fill those shoes.

Released on Montreal’s Union 2112 Records, R.O.T.R. is a darkly-melodic album that draws from the group’s punkrock roots and combines their harder-hitting sound with singer Nicole Skalesky’s signature blend of melodic & intense singing/screaming. Produced by Blair Calibaba (Sum 41, Gob) and Steve Rawles (Belvedere), the infectious melodies and killer riffs of Revenge On The Riverside have earned the band glowing reviews from some of Canada’s largest magazines (Exclaim!, The Nerve, etc.).

    Jesper needs to get back to what he's the best at.. Folk infused epic melodic death.

    'The two 'Whoracle' guitarists could have done something better' hmmm, it's weird that they didn't go for the Iron Maiden infused melodic death type of music, but nonetheless, it's interesting to hear that they went for the semi-The Haunted/Dismember-style of death metal

    Very mediocre [2] There's nothing special in this band.

    I second versionfiv - yet, it's great to see (listen?) that Jesper still got a few aces on his sleeve, given the monumental disappointment that IF has become.

    Tbh I'd prefer if the mix was closer to that of The Haunted's most recent album, Marco's vocals sounded way more powerful on Exit Wounds.

    The two 'Whoracle' guitarists could have done something better, but it's still yummy. Even reminds of Dismember at times.

    Сейчас меня закидают тапками, но я слышу в звучании данного коллектива металкорные жилки тут и там. Что совсем даже неплохо, на самом то деле (:
