THE RESISTANCE: Sweden's New Metal Supergroup

Supergroups can be fun to think about, but how well do they work in practice? Well, I happen to be pretty partial to Bloodbath myself, so in light of Sweden's reliability in this area, The Resistance should be worth getting excited about. The line-up consists of former members of legendary acts such as In Flames, The Haunted, Dimension Zero, and Carnal Forge.

Here's the roster as it stands now:

Marco Aro (FACE DOWN, ex-THE HAUNTED) – Vocals
Jesper Strömblad (ex-IN FLAMES, DIMENSION ZERO) – Guitar
Glenn Ljungström (ex-IN FLAMES, DIMENSION ZERO) – Guitar
Alex Losbäck Holstad (ex-DESPITE, DECAMERON, CARDINAL SIN) – Bass
Chris Barkensjö (CARNAL FORGE, GODSIC, ex-GRAVE) – Drums

This must mean of course that Jesper has kicked his alcohol habit, enabling him to play once again. (Perhaps this could result in his re-joining of In Flames? hmmmm?) We'll see what happens, but its good to know he'll be back on stage.

The news is still pretty fresh, so expect further details to come out soon!
