Another legendary hardcore act, out of Los Angeles, California we bring you STRIFE. Formed in the early 90s they quickly made their name with a more speed metal way of hardcore. Their first LP, “One Truth” was released in 1994 on Victory rcs. It put them alongside other hardcore big hitters EARTH CRISIS and SNAPCASE in the Victory rcs hall of fame. Their follow-up album “In This Defiance”, released in 1997 became an even bigger hit. Besides the best of the contemporary metallic hardcore, they got an impressive list of guest appearances on this album, from DEFTONES’ Chino Moreno to Igor Cavalera of SEPULTURA. About 2 years later STRIFE called it a day over creative differences. They have been around again for a while now, and will be doing a short run of European shows that will bring them to the 19th edition of Ieperfest for their first ever performance here!
