Conception - Are Back, New EP Announced


It has been evident that Roy Khan, former Conception and Kamelot vocalist and songwriter is back in the music business after a few years of hiatus. After many rumours have surfaced the internet, it was Conception that officially announced their return to activity after being disbanded for 21 years. The news were exposed by Roy Khan and guitarist Tore Østby themselves on the new Conception Facebook page, and it appears the band is returning as a quartet, along with bassist Ingar Amlien and drummer Arve Heimdal.

Adding to these news, Conception also started a crownfunding project on PledgeMusic to support the recording and final release of their upcoming EP, which title is yet announced. There has been no further details as of yet, but fans of both progressive and melodic metal should keep up to date with future updates regarding the progress of the EP's release.

I'm so excited for this, I was pretty bummed out when Ark ended up going nowhere a few years back.

Just recieved the following email as a pledger:

''Woah! Well we just wanted to say hello and send a message of love and gratitude to you all for showing your support and positivity about our reunion! We have been overwhelmed by the warmth and generosity shown from all of you, and just wanted to take a moment to say thank you; we can't wait for you to hear the new music! To celebrate, we have made available some extra opportunities to purchase your name in the EP credits.

Oh, and you might want to keep your eyes peeled for further Pledge project updates - we are working on some pretty cool things which we will share with you very soon�.

Humbly yours,
Arve, Ingar, Roy & Tore''

Not necessarily. But since he has had a breakdown once before because he couldnt reconcile the 2 it seems a valid concern to me.

I believe with Kamelot he was having issues with burnout from the touring schedule. So my guess (and wishful thinking) would be that they may not tour extensively or no touring but there will be new music.

About burnout.. Watch Kamelot on Wacken 2008, especially how Youngblood looks like.
I don't think guys from Conception would ever let something like that happen. And I believe they will tour

It's the great news for us all, I'm glad I'm finally can support my all-time favourite vocalist and band, can hear new music soon! It's like living a dream.

Ah, I thought you were talking about the religious stuff, not about the burn-out.

Well i think the religious stuff was a factor. Just a small one. Over all though i think it was a mix of alot of things.

As for his beliefs, thats between him and his god. Its bo one elses buisness at all. If what he believes makes him feel complete and at peace im trully happy for him. Though i do hope he doese t use this reunion with the intent to preach.

This is the best news I heard since my (ex) girlfriend sent me text saying she wants to do anal back in 2005.
