Conception

A classic melodic power metal band with a distinctively European flavor, Conception garnered fine reviews and a loyal following throughout their career. After four albums the band folded, and the members scattered to other bands, with vocalist Roy Khan joining Kamelot, guitarist Tore Østby forming Ark, and bassist Ingar Amlien forming Crest Of Darkness (with whom drummer Arve Heimdal also served for a time).

Recent album: State Of Deception, released on April 3, 2020.
