California band Winds of Plague look to deliver some darkness with their fourth album, Resistance. Symphonic elements and elaborate solos set them apart from their deathcore contemporaries, helping to elevate the album above the formulaic, breakdown-laden template that seems so hard for other bands to break free of. This not only makes Winds of Plague unique among deathcore bands, but it also makes Resistance an album that's more likely to appeal to fans of big, symphonic death metal, and in a genre that's all about breaking the mold, this kind of experimentation certainly deserves some recognition.
