International Noise Conspiracy is a Swedish punk band formed by vocalist Dennis Lyxzen and guitarist Lars Stroemberg. Mostly famous for their anarchist propaganda, they played old-fashioned garage-rock with melodic overtones.

Dennis Lyxzen had been a member of Refused, formed in 1991 and dissolved in 1998, after releasing two albums, This Just Might Be the Truth (1993) and Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent (1996), with Rather Be Dead, as well as three EPs. Their spiritual and artistic testament was The Shape of Punk to Come (Victory, 1998), whose title paraphrases a legendary jazz recording. This album was much more mature in the way it concocted militant jazzcore that harked back to the Minutemen and Universal Congress but filtered through the post-rock generation. Their last EP, The New Noise Theology (2000), contained their post-hardcore anthem New Noise.

The early singles would be collected on The First Conspiracy (Burning Heart, 2002).

Survival Sickness (Epitaph, 2000) was an impressive collection of anthemic rock'n'roll, but already far less ferocious than the singles.

The A New Morning Changing Weather (Burning Heart, 2002) was a mediocre parody of power-pop.

The EP Bigger Cages Longer Chains (Epitaph, 2003) is a vehicle for the poppy Beautiful So Alone.

Armed Love (American, 2004) and The Cross Of My Calling (2008) offered rather predictable retro-rock.

International Noise Conspiracy è una punk band svedese composta dal vocalist Dennis Lyxzen ed il chitarrista Lars Stroemberg. Rinomati per la loro militanza anarchica, suonano un garage-rock vecchio stile con sottofondi melodici.

Dennis Lyxzen faceva parte dei Refused, band formata nel 1991 e sciolta nel 1998, dopo l’uscita di 2 album, This Just Might Be the Truth (1993) e Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent (1996), più Rather Be Dead, così come altri tre EP. Il loro testamento artistico e spirituale è stato The Shape of Punk to Come (Victory, 1998), il cui titolo parafrasa una leggendaria incisione jazz. Questo album risulta molto più maturo, nel senso che prepara alla militanza jazzcore riprendendo i Minutemen e gli Universal Congress, anche se filtrato dalla generazione post-rock. Il loro ultimo EP, The New Noise Theology (2000), contiene il loro inno post-hardcore, New Noise.

I primi singoli sono inseriti in The First Conspiracy (Burning Heart, 2002).

Survival Sickness (Epitaph, 2000) è un’impressionante collezione di pezzi rock'n'roll, ma già meno feroci rispetto ai singoli.

A New Morning Changing Weather (Burning Heart, 2002) è una mediocre parodia di power-pop.

L’EP Bigger Cages Longer Chains (Epitaph, 2003) è un veicolo per l’ascolto della "oppiacea" Beautiful So Alone.

Armed Love (American, 2004) è un piuttosto prevedibile retro-rock.
