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. Their perseverance and dedicated fan base helped spark a Los Angeles and Orange County punk rock revival of sorts during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Final Conflict have stayed active and relevant thru the years touring and releasing new material. In 2013 Final Conflict reunited 3/4 of the "Ashes to Ashes" lineup for the Chaos in Tejas Festival in Austin TX and Maryland Death Fest in Baltimore 2014.

Currently the band's lineup includes 1/2 of the original 1987 "Ashes to Ashes" lineup. Ron Martinez (Vocals), Jeff Harp (Guitar), Anthony Robles (Bass) and Nick Manning (drums) and have consistently played with this lineup since 2016.
