4 stars I welcome everyone in this forum and I am glad to be here with all the prog-fans!!! Nice to meet everyone! I would like to start my prog reports going in Parallel Minds by CONCEPTION.

Releasing Parallel Minds, Conception manage to arrive in an extremely beautiful genre of melodic-progressive metal, appearing power elements, too. The arresting voice of Roy Chan, the clean as a whistle guitar playing of Tore Ostby and the awesome duo of Ingar Amlien (bass) & Arve Heimdal (drums) create a marvelous atmosphere! We also have to mention the excellent undercurrent keys of Hans Gjestvang. Parallel Minds magnetizes you from the first note. All the songs are carefully composed (chiefly by Roy Chan & Tore Ostby) and you can notice the out-breathing fit of Chan's voice & Ostby's guitar. An excellent conjunction! Releasing a new style with this album as a group, Conception begin to be considered as a serious, extremely talented group. Finally, Parallel Minds will not disappoint anyone who belongs in the prog audience! A masterpiece according to me... Characteristic tracks: Water Confines, Roll the Fire, Parallel Minds, Silver Shine & My Decision. (without underrating the others, of course).
