xUNFORCEx came in the end of December 1998. When Neil and Jun – Jun meet at the show. Then ask him if he is interested in doing a band. And because they came from same area they easily get involved and started. And then they have a friend who named Rochelle who know how to drums so to complete the lineup, they got Dulip who was their schoolmate and interested to be part of the band. Then they got the name of UNFORCE from THE CONFLICT Album “Ungovernable Force” which is a political punk band. They just cut and shorten it and came into the name of UNFORCE. After the named created they started to play some local shows. They had few cover songs from SHELTER that was included in cover songs recorded entitled “COVER WHAT YOU WANT” Tape (1998) that is a DIY record on cassette recorder for our personal purpose only and then followed by 3 songs entitled “DEADLY HAZARDOUZ” Tape (1999). In late 90’s especially in far south resistance area there is only few bands that record their songs; mostly it was recorded thru cassette recorder and that was one of the great experienced. They shared stage so many dedicated local and foreign bands like the old Himsa, Pasahora, Arakiri and a lot of shows coming from San Pablo City, Manila, Batangas, Baguio, Pampanga and hometown far south resistance community. And because of work and other activities they decided to li-low and revived this 2009 and only Neil (the original Member left) and decided to get a new member came from different bands and still keeping the old school tradition in vein of Shutdown, Ten Yard Fight and Trial.
