"Can't Stop the Truth" (Victory; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

After a near decade-long hiatus, the Earth Crisis triple vocal assault side project Path of Resistance returns with more of the chugging riffs and straight edge mantra that made the outfit so revered in the scene. 

"Can't Stop the Truth" is the title of this septet's integrity-fueled 12-track comeback, an impassioned stomp 'em in the pit tour de force whose message packs as big a punch as the scolding riffs and pummeling rhythms found on cuts like "Best of My Best."

Tracks like "Haunted," "The Mission," and "Against the Gale" strike with the havoc Hatebreed brings and the old school hardcore fire-and-brimstone delivery that what passes for hardcore today generally misses. 

Serving as a reminder as to how saturated and downright diluted the scene that this band loves so much has become, Path of Resistance reclaims its stake with abundant force on their return effort.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
