Conception's incredible album "Flow" blew me away, so naturally the next step was getting the rest of their catalogue. Compared to Flow, In Your Multitude is heavier sonically but lighter in terms of song diversity, and I don't like it as much, but insofar as European progmetal goes, this is a solid album.
The band draws from a variety of influences. However, this is not all out progressive music...it's metal a progressive flavor. Guitarist Tore Ostby's technique is heavy, fast and clean, although the agressive riffs sometimes take a backseat to more florid pieces. Songs run the aural gamut, from beautiful acoustic and classical guitar solos to vicious, searing guitar riffs. The drummer? Topnotch...he's true percussionist. The bassist is very tight; sometimes the songs leave him to establish the rhythm and he fares very well. The most notable aspect of Conception is their vocalist Roy S. Khan. In a world where most European metal singers plague their music with overbearing accents and terrible pronunciation, Khan stands head and shoulders above his peers. His accent is prominent, but it never compromises his pronunciation...it actually complements his sound. His unique sound is decidedly refreshing, and his emotional power -- combined with his excellent lyrics -- are superlative. Oh yeah, those lyrics...they're good, really good. The band examines interesting themes, like the lugubrious "Santuary" or the insightful "A Million Gods." Good stuff...it proves that "metal" and "intelligence" can exist in the same sentence.
Get all of Conception's CDs...they f'ing rule. The band's catalogue also includes "The Last Sunset" which isn't available here at Amazon, but if you like these guys its worth picking up.

Conception from Norway is something of an oddity, they are young, they are creative and finally and most importantly they are skilled... a combination which isn't too common today.
The most notable thing about Conception in my opinion is Roy Khan, the vocalist. I can't really think of any other rock vocalist with his reach, control and timbre of voice, perhaps if you mix the likes of Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson in his prime, Queensrÿche's Geoff Tate and Fates Warning's Ray Alder, taking the best from each of them... in short, one of the very best rock vocalists I have ever heard.
Tore Østby, the guitar player also makes quite an impression, very skilled, tight, fast, precise as well as very.. emotional. I simply love his rythm playing where he mixes solo elements, effectively playing more than one role at the same time and fullfilling both perfectly. The rest of the band is very talented as well, Arve Heimdal on drums being a 'true' progressive metal drummer, tight and precise.
The music can be characterized as progressive melodic rock metal, depending upon what particular song you listen too, some are of the balad variety, others are more hardhitting metallized. Their musical influences are many, they make true progressive rock/metal in the sense that they apparently do whatever they want to do, as long as it's sounds true... mixing elements from classical, flamenco, folk, blues... and making it all fit nicely in a rock/metal package. While I don't think this is their best album, it's still good enough to deserve 5 stars.
This is an album that belongs in any serious prog rock/metal listener's collection - along with the band's other albums, Last Sunset, Parallel Minds and Flow... on par with 'rÿche's Operation Mindcrime, Fates' Perfect Symmetry and A Pleasant Shade Of Gray and Dream Theater's Images and Words... better get them soon, the band is no more... and never got the recognition it deserved.

Conception was one of the best, and sadly over-looked even by underground metal standards, metal bands of the 90's. They released 4 masterpieces in the 90's on the strength of creative songwriting and 4 amazing musicians, including smooth and expressive vocalist Roy Khan (now of Kamelot) and Flamenco-influenced guitar virtuoso Tore Ostby (now of ARK). Also, drummer Arve Heimdal and bassist Ingar Amlien contribute absolutely beautiful performances. They would be pushed to the background with simplified performances on the final album "Flow", but here the bass often creates the primary rhythm of the songs with its technical yet tuneful playing, and the drumming is truly progressive, infusing a sultry Latin essence and playing melodically, almost creating percussive songs within songs. The music here is top-notch melodic metal with some progressive moves, a slight thrash influence and a Latin influence that creeps up every now and then. The vocals are mid-ranged, passionate, silky and powerful. The songs are just really well written. They are deep compositions that allow the performers to tax their abilities, but also allow the songs to breathe and flow.
"Under a Mourning Star" opens with an extremely heavy and fast riff. This is a fist-pumping, headbanging, adrenaline rush. The chorus soars and features some beautiful harmonized vocals. The solo section is not only interesting for Tore Ostby's aggressive guitar solo but also for the staccato riffing behind it. "Can you help me? Under the mourning star! All I dream of... are the thoughts I can't expell."
"Missionary Man" is a mid-tempo cruncher. Ostby supplies a descending verse riff before the chorus kicks in with lush multi-layered vocals. This is a song about the dark side of religion. "I'm a missionary man.
