1. Strike 3 was a hardcore band from New Hampshire in the mid 90s. Here's their 'Side By Side' demo from 1996. This is seriously heavy mid-tempo hardcore, with deep vocals. While this band is pretty unknown and I don't think they did much in the way of touring or recording, singer Caleb Scofield would eventually move on to play bass in a more well-known band called Cave In. Anyways, Strike 3 sounds nothing like Cave In.
