Conception

Hello Tore. How did it feel to be back on stage and playing for the fans again after all these years ?
 
Tore: It simply felt fantastic to be back on stage and share the magic atmosphere with our fans! The shows have fueled us with a lot of energy, and we can’t wait to be back touring!
 
 
In retrospect, how was the response to the EP?
 

Conception - State of Deception

Norwegian prog metal demigods Conception almost made it big in the 90s releasing a series of spectacular albums with both the media and the fans taking notice back in the day. That was until they decided to follow their artistic muse and release an album that radically different than what they’d done in the past and wasn’t as rock/metal as their fans expected. That album was “Flow”.

Paralydium to release debut full-length album “Worlds Beyond” on May 8th 2020

Continuing our ongoing quest to release albums by the most inventive and exciting prog musicians we can find, Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the addition of Sweden’s Paralydium to the label. It’s fair to say that there are few bands that can or will match Paralydium’s delivery of melodic, rhythmical, and powerful songs. Their debut album, “Worlds Beyond” will showcase this very claim.

This 45 min conceptual piece of music was born back in 2014, when Kenneth Henriksen started making new songs right after the release of the band’s “Cognizance” EP. After finishing a few songs it became obvious that the band wanted the album to have a red line throughout, inspired by albums like “The Wall”, “Scenes From A Memory” and “Operation Mindcrime”.

Almanac - Rush of Death

I must say that after witnessing the serious lineup changes, which left only Victor Smolski (G, K) and his LGO partner Jeannette Marchewka (female vocals) in place, and included losing both David Readman and Andy B Frank as vocalists and some really poor reviews, I begun listening to this album with some trepidation to say the least if not a bit of a negative bias.
