What the press has been saying about CONSPIRACY OF THOUGHT: 'In the spirit of bands like U2, Public Enemy, and Bad Religion, Conspiracy of Thought sees the need for change in the world and isn't afraid to stand up for it.' Campus Circle Magazine. 'COT incorporates dynamic song composition with two completely different vocal approaches. Each song meshes multiple styles of music into a grand amalgamation of power and substance. With strong political overtones in their lyrics, Conspiracy of Thought is a band with a message and a substantial musical soapbox from which to present it... This is the type of group that makes you wonder why they aren't signed.' Scott Perham, Music Connection Magazine. 'Their energy is intense, their sound angry and loud, and I'm supposed to feel Love and Peace? Goddamn! I think people wanted to mosh. To this day I can't forget watching Mike rapping and playing heavy slap-popping bass grooves at the same time. Or watching Ben with his antennae shaped haircut and melodramatic stage presence as he led the crowd in protest chants like a modern day civil activist. If you're a fan of intense stage shows, the Conspiracy of Thought promises not to disappoint... This is a band that not only astounds me with their convictions, but also with their stage show.' Hans Fink, Skinnie Magazine. A letter from COT: Whether you are a political activist, or a music enthusiast, we hope that the music of Conspiracy of Thought will entertain and inspire you. Love, peace, truth, and justice are the themes we live by and our music echoes those convictions. We really do believe the words we sing in the song Jihad, 'Why can't we walk hand in hand, and put an end to all the hate that now destroys our broken land.' Love your neighbor, love your enemy, and show compassion to the least of these-our brothers and sisters around the world. Only you can change the world. The Conspiracy is depending on you to do it.
