Path of Level of resistance were billed with the Chicago-based Success Records label because the “Wu-Tang Clan of hardcore,” a tiny misnomer based more on the actual fact which the group included a lot of associates in its lineup than on almost any hip-hop element within its sound. Route of Resistance had been a short-lived aspect task that grew from the Syracuse, NY-based straight-edge flag-bearing music group Globe Crisis. Route of Resistance’s music was stripped-down, back-to-basics metal-tinged hardcore led by three performers with distinctly effective voices screaming exclusively and totally about issues linked to the straight-edge life style. In 1995, Globe Crisis’ van strike an icy patch of street while on tour with Shelter within the Northwest. The band’s drummer, Dennis Merrick, was significantly injured more than enough to sideline all of them from touring for the spell. In order he recuperated, all of those other music group gathered some close friends and documented an recording as Route of Resistance, known as Who Dares Wins, that was released in 1996 on Victory. The recording cover featured an image shot in Syracuse depicting many regional straight-edge kids hanging out an deserted building wearing skiing masks and different X-oriented paraphernalia. The trunk of the recording is an image from the band’s friend “Crazy Sean” obtaining Xs tattooed on his hands. The lineup acknowledged on the recording consisted of Globe Crisis vocalist Karl Buechner and then-Earth Problems guitarist Kris Weichman posting vocal responsibilities alongside longtime roadie, friend, and tour supervisor DJ Rose. Globe Problems guitarist Scott Crouse was also up to speed, in addition to bassist Ian “Bulldog” Edwards (playing acoustic guitar), ex-Framework vocalist Shane Durgee (playing bass), and previous Globe Problems drummer Mike Riccardi. Apart from a fresh Year’s Day special event in Syracuse that drew over 800 people in 1997, the music group played only 1 other display — a shock performance carrying out a Madball arranged later that 12 months. Plans for long term produces on Trustkill and Equivalent Vision had been scrapped; the music group dissolved from the year’s end. Rose continued to donate to another task, Prayer for any Fallen Angel, because the Globe Crisis guys returned into touring and saving actions until they known as it quits in 2001. Weichman became a member of a music group known as God Below. In Apr 2004, however, Route of Level of resistance reunited for any one-off display before time for the stage once more the next New Year’s. These live reunions ultimately culminated within an recording of new materials, Can’t Stop the reality, that made an appearance in Apr 2006 on Triumph.
