Do you remember the period, between 2004 and 2007 circa, in which the metal magazines were literally invaded by an endless storm of so-called metalcore bands? They were the glorious years of Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Unearth, Caliban and others, all bands that, said generally, rediscovered the Swedish melodic death metal ala At the Gates to add into it a (often) slight touch of hardcore punk. And these Last Resistance, a young Italian band from Brindisi (South Italy) founded in 2013, is just mostly influenced by that kind of bands, as you can hear through their self-released EP "A World Painted Grey", that the Italian agency called Synth sent me some months ago in physical CD format.
