Formed in 1993, STRONG INTENTION continues to deliver their own brand of thrash/grind hardcore/punk fueled by extreme speed, heaviness, and disgust. The band's earliest incarnation found itself heavily Influenced by classic NYHC outfits such as AGNOSTIC FRONT, BREAKDOWN, and the CRO-MAGS. Gradually writing faster and faster material, the band released a debut 7" EP in 1996 on Crucial Blast. Through the years, the band's sound has shifted more and more towards the harshest ends of the underground extreme hardcore grind/thrash / metal spectrum, as well as cultivate a thoroughly apocalyptic worldview.
