Resistance Posts Studio Trailer

Death metal band Resistance has announced the artwork and title of its forthcoming fifth studio album. Titled "The Seeds Within," the album will be released later this year under a label to be announced. The band has posted a studio trailer for "The Seeds Within" which can be viewed below the album artwork.

Guitarist Oli Dris commented about the album: "The CD elaborates the human race and its defects. How we desperately seek forgiveness, how coward we are towards our reality. The lyrical content is heavy and depressive. It metaphorically pictures how helpless we are facing whatever comes at us.

The music is structured and shaped around this concept. Rhythm is the essence but melody plays its part bringing freshness when needed and making the listener's journey flawless. More brutal, more aggressive and heavier than ever, Resistance matured and will crush!"

In other news, Resistance has announced a nine-date UK tour, which kicks off on April 18th in Stoke. Dates are as follows:

4/18 - STOKE @ The Rigger

"We are honored to be invited to perform at the 7th annual Warriors of Metal Festival. We've kept an eye on this festival and watched it continually grow since it's inception.
