Conflict - The Final Conflict album
Final Conflict is a hardcore punk band from Long Beach, California formed in 1983. They have gone through various lineup changes with the only constant member being original guitar player (and founder) Jeff Harp. Final Conflict is regarded as one of the first extreme hardcore punk bands from the Los Angeles/Orange County area. They incorporated a British-style hardcore punk rock at a time when the punk rock scene was at its weakest popularity

With the record The Final Conflict, many suspected that Conflict was breaking up, though the band released quite a few more records. But things were downhill from this period in their career. The lineup on The Final Conflict included two of the foremost singers in the British anarchist punk scene: Colin Jerwood, Conflict's longtime singer, and Steve Ignorant of Crass, as well as Kerry Bovell. This album has a loud, discordant feel to it and it starts to wear on the listener after a while. It opens with the thundering instrumental "Countdown to Confrontation" and segues into the first rip-roaring number, "Let the Battle Commence. But before the A-side ends, the music loses most of its melody and starts to degenerate into sameness. There's one really questionable song, "The Cord Is Cut," clearly an anti-abortion rant.
The Final Conflict Lyrics. Eight years of hard labour now seems suddenly to fade Away we stand defeated, at home the police invade Prosecutions hit an all time high, . friends locked inside Our own they turn against us. Well you've got what you want, now shut you mouth. Fuck you, fucking fuck off, can't you see what you're destroying? They sit back fucking creasing up as we squabble assisting all of them You are what you think and that's nothing, can't you see what we say is you? Scurrying around like angry ants, banging our heads on the same wall.

Title: The Final Conflict (1981). Now come into his full knowledge and power, the Anti-Christ in the body of Damien Thorne is about to strike his final blow. The Christ-child has been born again, on the Angel Isle, Great Britain (Scotland, England & Wales). The plan is simple, kill the Christ child to prevent him from growing up to bring the return of Christ and death of the Anti-Christ.
