#Intensity / R.O.Conspiracy   Leave a comment

(1986 – 1988)

Meaning bandname: Radical Overthrow Conspiracy. The global hardcore movement is a conspiracy based on radical ideas/ideals with an overdose of cre-activity in/against this capitalist world.

History: Started as Intensity in 1986 but changed the name into R.O.Conspiracy in the end of 1987. Rehearsals are near Roden but later in the W.N.C. squat in Groningen. The individual political lyrics are written by Theo and Michael. The band makes a clear stand against violence plus the racist/fascist tendencies within the metalscene and don’t consider themselves a crossoverband despite the obvious musical influences. They keep a very strong D.I.Y. ethic.

Lyrics: political, personal, funstuff.

Description: hardcorepunk.
