American metallers RESISTANCE return with
energetic metal fury on their second full
album ‘PATENTS OF CONTROL’.
Following on from their acclaimed debut
‘Lies In Black’ the band have
recorded 11 tracks which see the band honing
their sound with a tighter, heavier and
more focused direction and intensity which
has been gained from countless live performances
on the US live circuit. ‘PATENTS OF
CONTROL’ also marks the debut of new
guitarist Dave Watson appearing on album
with the band.
OF CONTROL’ is the story of one mans
obsession to provide humanity with the ideal
society. Free of crime, Hunger, Poverty,
Drug Addiction and Misery. The lyrical concept
focuses on the idea of thought and behaviour
control through the use of devices that
have actual United States patents. It further
deals with the idea of world illuminati
using this information to create a new world
‘PATENTS OF CONTROL’ is a progression
from the debut concentrating on big hooky
vocal melodies and background vocals which
may remind the listener of bands such as
Iced Earth. The individual performances
on the album hold true to the Resistance
sound. Musically the album is diverse with
dark undertones. The band has created memorable
choruses as well making each song stand
out on its own within the concept. With
the making of the album the bands goal was
to push their creative abilities as far
as possible and write an album that they,
as listeners, would buy and enjoy.
OF CONTROL’ sees Resistance honing
their blend of traditional metal with thrash
influences to brutal perfection.
