In march 2003 the "Suicide Campaign part 1." split tape(with the Belgian "Verloren" and the Brittish "Odium") was released by the Belgian label "Soldiers of Sudarium", of wich Theriomorph soon joined to play the bass. Later in 2003, Hellchrist XUL(Funeral Winds/Domini Inferi) and Balgradon XUL(Funeral Winds/Infinity) joined to play respectively guitar and drums on the third edition of the "Unie van Atregt" festival in Arnhem, The Netherlands.
A recording of this first live performance was released on tape under the name "Live on UVA #3" by "Staalhart Productions"(The Netherlands) in co-operation with "Soldiers of Sudarium". Hellchrist XUL and Balgradon XUL decided to maintain fulfilling their tasks in Haatstrijd and a few more live performances were done in The Netherlands and Belgium.
Early 2004, Haatstrijd Signed to the Dutch label "Sadolust Records" to release the first recording with the full line up: The "Satansplaag" 7"EP was released in march 2004. Since then, Sadolust Records has been Haatstrijd's official label.
In September 2005, Haatstrijd decided to part ways with bass player Theriomorph. He was temporarily replaced by Balgradon Xul during the recordings of the debut full-length album entitled "Cacodaemony" wich was released in april 2006 on cd, special edition cd and lp format by Sadolust Records.
In may 2006, Haatstrijd found a new bass player in Soturno with whom one live ritual was performed at the Black Metal Blitzkriek II in Bladel, The Netherlands.
Shortly after this performance, Haatstrijd was temporarily laid to rest.
In January 2013, after almost 7 years of coma, Nachtvorst and Hellchrist Xul decided it was time to join forces again through our common tool; Haatstrijd was awakened from it's slumber.
Energies were renewed, processes re-invented, and new portals will be opened soon.
