Final Conflict – S/T E.P. 7″

Don’t let the name and INCREDIBLE ugly cover scare you away. It would lead you to believe it’s another mediocre mid 80’s Euro HC or d-clone band but it’s not. What immediately comes to mind is a mix of Void, United Mutation and early Husker Du. Yeah it’s that good! Still, as with 90% of the early 80’s USHC/punk bands, they have a sound of their own(how many times have I used this exact sentence?). And talking about Husker Du it’s produced by no other then the living God Bob Mould. So do anybody know if they released anything else or what happened to ’em? Fuck powerpop, Fuck New Wave, This is Hardcore. You’re a slave.

    If you wanna hear some extra tracks by FINAL CONFLICT, check this out:

    Wonderful EP and criminally underappreciated.

  2. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Sorry Erich! I was so certain you hadn’t posted it that I just didn’t bother to check :).

  3. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    And the added comp. tracks are just as incredible as well. And then you even credited me in the post plus that I commented. How could I forgotten that ha ha?

  4. Jay Thurston says:

    It happens, Peter. Sometimes, in the middle of all that crappy heavy metal that Erich posts, he throws some decent stuff in there. Hahahaha…

    Peter, sorry I’ve been scarce around here, but with this one I may have something small to add. Found this on soulseek a while back claiming to be their demo from 1983. Not labeled, with just a few song titles, and I never took the time to research it, but I thought it made a good listen. Check it,
    from one wornout brother to another :-D

  6. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Thanks Justin :). I’ll download it when at home. I need to see if I can fix Soulseek on my mac once again.

    Great, great, great! raw and desperate midwest hc. Much, much better than those speed metal hippies from California. “self defeated” Stand as one of the best midwest hc songs EVER.

  8. DAVIDx502 says:

    it reminds me of DIE KREUZEN sometimes, it’s great :)

  9. Mike says:

    While don’t think it’s better than the speed metal hippies from the OC I do like this 7″. The comp songs are better though

  10. tim says:

    my balls just popped!!!!!!!!!!! awesome record.

  11. TAFKASP says:

    hey, i’ve got this discharge tribute single on which they do ‘a look at tomorrow’ – let me know if you haven’t got it already…

  12. lackeyland says:

    Another both great and original band on Reflex from that ‘era’ was Man Sized Action.

  13. chano says:

    SoCal Final Conflict suck sooo bad… A mediocre Crucifix clone with a cheesy metal edge. I don’t know about the other F.C.

  14. Rudeboy Noah says:

    I’ve said it b4 & I’ll say it again this is 1 helluva blog, previously I said almost as good as Little Hits, but now I would have 2 say u have surpassed that blog in sheer quantity & quality!

    “YOur” ,
    so satisfying

  17. roc says:

    I like to think of all the Final Conflict as one single band.

  18. Alex77 says:

    fuuuuck hardcore…. Power pop all the way home

  19. Erich says:

    I have to tellyou that I actually enjoy the other Final Conflict a bit and just to piss you off, I might be posting some 7″ers by them, haha

  20. elliott says:

    this is good hc but i like the other final conflict better. the 1985 demo is just great and the first lp is well just listen to it! i wouldn’t know that they had metal influence unless someone told me. thanks for this though.

  21. Martin says:

    I can’t put my finger on why I like this EP as much as I do, but I get very excited everytime I hear it. Normally this kind of raw hc leaves me flat, but this one kills!
