1. There are four bands here. One is the dark, heavy Thought Crime from Richmond, California. They broke up in 2004. 2. Thought Crime from LA, are a melodic rap-metal outfit who formed in the mid 2000's. They have an EP out on i-tunes as of Summer 2008 and play shows and sell merchandise under the Thought Crime name. 3. The other is Thought Crime from Brooklyn. This is the confederacy of drunks that rose from the ashes of Distraught in the late 90's to terrorize the east coast (and parts of greater London) with straight-ahead teeth-grinding punk rock fury.
