Pär: "It's quite unusual, and it's a store we rarely had heard anything about. (...) It was a fan actually in Belgium, who gave us the story in a Flemish document."
Indy Neidell: "Do you speak or read Flemish?"
Pär: "Not a single word. So it became a bit complicated and the person translated it for us like, sort of, so that we could understand the story, but we could really never verify that it was absolutely true and because we couldn't find any other alternative sources for the exact thing."
Pär: "A lot of Belgians over the years have also asked us to write songs about their history nad stuff, and this one we found from World War II, which was a little bit like unexpected of all the stories from Belgium."
The story of the Chasseurs Ardennais, whose emblem is the wild boar. A small Belgian unit of soldiers who were supposed to defend the borders and hold their ground along the K-W Line in May 1940. When the German armies, which included Rommel’s Ghost Division, approached the unit, they were supposed to retreat but due to communication failure the order never reached them. Instead they honoured their original orders, which were to defend the border at all cost. They fought so bravely and on such a large front, that they tricked the axis into believing that they were facing a force much larger than 40 rifles strong. When finally they were captured and their captors asked them -”where are the others?” they simply laughed and answered. -”There are no others, we are all!”. The song gets its title from their motto Resiste Et Mords, in English, Resist and Bite.
- The song was a staple during Heroes on Tour, The Last Tour and the 2019 North American Leg of The Great Tour.
- During the 2020 European Leg of The Great Tour it was played during one show in Antwerpen.
- Joakim plays on guitar during the band's live performances of the song.
