THE PATH OF RESISTANCE is a band born of tragedy. In the spring of 1996, the members of Earth Crisis had a terrible van accident which left drummer Dennis Merrick unable to play for months. Hungering to continue their message while their bandmate was healing, THE PATH concept was conceived.
While Earth Crisis had many diverse issues on its plate and an expanded sound, the members had always wanted to get back to the basics, both fundamentally and musically. Now it seemed that time had forced these issues and they called on the assistance of compatriot and long-time Vegan Straight Edge advocate D.J. Rose to round out the project’s roster. The band then recorded their debut, Who Dares Wins for Victory Records in 1997. Written and recorded in a month, the raw emotion and pure aggression that is Who Dares Wins destined it to become an underground classic. Drawing together the scattered remnants of the once-thriving philosophy, their first live appearance drew over 800 people from around the globe. Many attest that what they witnessed that day was one of the greatest moments in hardcore history. With three vocalists, all sections of the audience were assaulted–but microphones were hardly needed for these anthemic songs.
