earMUSIC signar The Resistance och släpper deras debut-EP den 25:e januari 2013!

Jesper Strömblad och Glenn Ljungström är ex-In Flames, sångaren Marco Aro som vi känner från The Haunted och Facedown och trumslagaren Chris Barkensjö (ex-Kaamos, ex-Grave) utgör vad som kallas för en icke-supergrupp eller någon form av sidoprojekt utan – The Resistance!


”earMUSIC, the Hamburg based international rock label part of Edel Group, is proud to welcome The Resistance, and to announce the release of the debut EP“Rise From Treason” in January 2013, followed by a full-length album in April 2013.


The Resistance will definitely be one of the extreme metal bands of 2013. The band members’ “CV” is as heavy as the sound of their new musical adventure.

The four Swedish musicians carry a great legacy in the great Scandinavian extreme metal tradition.

In Flames’ founding member (and main songwriter until his departure in 2010) Jesper Strömblad is one of the ”columns” of the huge Resistance sound.

The band also features other musicians with extensive music experience under their belt.

Together with Jesper, we find another ex member of In Flames, Glenn Ljungström, vocalist Marco Aro (ex-The Haunted, Facedown) and drummer Chris Barkensjö (ex-Kaamos, ex-Grave).

The band is ready to make its great entrance in the world of extreme metal with the release of a 4 tracks EP on January 25th, 2013.

The EP will be released as download, CD and limited edition 7″ vinyl.


The Resistance is not a super-group, or a side project. It is a band, it’s a gang, embracing the musical attitude and sounds of Swedish old school death metal and the old “no compromise” values of hardcore. The band is currently in the studio finishing its first full length album with a tentative release plan for April 2013. Shredding guitar riffs, blasting beats and screaming out a lot of anger, The Resistance will take no prisoners and make no compromises with their old school death-metal.


”We’re extremely happy that we have been given the opportunity to sign a worldwide recording deal with earMUSIC”, says Jesper“Together with them we will spread our vision of Swedish old school Death Metal with a nice blend of hardcore energy. Watch out for our upcoming EP and album. This is gonna be some good violent fun.””
