Biography

Strength Approach formed in the Spring of 1996 in Rome, Italy to breath new life into the local hardcore scene that had become stagnant and boring. From their first live appearance, the kids took notice of the energetic performances and the band’s notoriety grew within Rome. The more this new entity took to the stage, the more the name grew and eventually they were gaining attention outside the city as well. In that first year, the fledgling Surrounded label asked Strength Approach to contribute a song to their now infamous compilation “The New Season.” With this exposure, Strength Approach was able to spread their name, release a subsequent self titled debut 7”, and play throughout Italy and its European Neighbors. In 1997, they played the XXX Hardcore Fest in Milan with bands such as Reality, Redemption, and Product among others. Despite a few line-up changes, the band never slowed down and continued to record and put forth other material.
These early recordings gave the band an opportunity to catch the eyes of the larger hardcore scenes throughout europe and even the United States. For example, the Belgian Siton records put out their “Keep the Standards High” 7”, and their split with Florida’s Esteem appeared on Germany’s Keep It Alive records. With additional international labels like Reflections, Commitment, Back ta Basics, and others from Japan and Scandinavia using their songs for various compilations, Strength Approach kept up their momentum and continued to make their presence known.
