Roy Khan Is Back With His Old Band CONCEPTION | New EP Soon

After 20 years, Roy Khan returns to Norwegian Power Metal band, CONCEPTION, by reuniting with it’s most famous lineup: Tore Østby, Ingar Amlien and Arve Heimdal.

CONCEPTION is a Progressive Power Metal band that was formed in the year 1989 and disbanded in 1998 after Khan left to join the American Progressive Metal band, KAMELOT. Khan then left Kamelot in 2010 and went off the radar. In 2014 we published the investigative, viral article “What Happened To Roy Khan After Leaving The Band” which tried to collect several information from here and there, and later in 2016 we published a letter that shows Khan’s interest in going back to music. Check it out >here<.

At the beginning of this month, Roy Khan Releases First Song After Leaving Kamelot, and hinted for a reunion with his old band CONCEPTION.

CONCEPTION decided to release their comeback album by financing it themselves and by asking for the help of their fans through a crowdfunding campaign via a PledgeMusic campaign.

“Since releasing the album “Flow” in 1997, the members have been working on separate projects, but fans never gave up hope of seeing them together as a band again. There have been rumors and speculations for some time about a possible reunion, and now they confirm they’ve been quietly working for some time on this new material.

Singer Roy Khan (ex-KAMELOT) says: “It’s great to be back together. The strong bond we have makes for a great foundation for creativity. We can’t wait to present our new music which we feel shows development but still bears the signature of CONCEPTION.”

Guitarist Tore Østby adds: “I can only agree with Roy. I think it’s been a surprising experience for all of us to meet each other musically again and find where this work has taken us.”

The decision to do this on their own has been unanimous, to explore the possibilities in having full control. They have already formed a team of professionals believing in the band’s comeback. The band intends to raise money to release a single and EP in the autumn.

Khan (full name: Roy Sætre Khantatat) recently released his first-ever solo song called “For All”. The track, which was written by Khan, was recorded at Stable Studios in Oslo, Norway in March 2018 and features Roy on vocals, piano and keyboards alongside Leif Johansen on fretless bass and Geir Olav Akselsen on all guitars.

After his departure from KAMELOT seven years ago, Khan, who is a devout Christian, joined a church in the coastal town of Moss, Norway. As an employee of Moss Frikirke, Khan worked with the youth, mainly with the choir and the skaters of the village. Roy stopped working at the church in September 2016, but is reportedly still living and working in Moss.

Khan announced his exit from KAMELOT in April 2011 after taking several months off to recover from a “burnout.” He explained in a statement at the time: “I told the guys in the band already last fall (well after my burnout) that I was leaving the band. Naturally enough, they were shocked (as was the label and everyone else working with KAMELOT). In addition to risk of dropping ticket sales, they wanted to give me time to think things over, and so I did. My decision still stands; it is finished.”

KAMELOT officially announced Tommy Karevik as its new lead singer in June 2012. The Florida-based band has recorded three albums so far with the Swedish vocalist: 2012’s “Silverthorn”, 2015’s “Haven” and “The Shadow Theory”, which arrived earlier month.” – Source Blabbermouth.

A Beautiful Goth Themed Wedding In Lebanon

A Goth-themed wedding took place in Lebanon last week and it was beautiful. Goth weddings is not a new thing in the world but it is definitely new to the eyes of Lebanese people.

Last Sunday, a wedding with a different flavor took place in Lebanon. On March 18, Dina Kayali and tattoo artist Nadim Zalloum tied the knot in the Syriac Church in the village of Ballouneh.

Breaking all traditions, Nadim showed up with a Goth Medieval dark burgundy coat, black pants, and Heavy Metal boots. While the bride Dina showed up with a beautiful yet simple black dress, a red flower crown, and to not stay away from the general code, she wore high heels… black high-heeled boots though. A state of art.

Goth Themed Wedding In Lebanon

The couple rode a horse carriage, and celebrated their after ceremony party at a public garden in Ballouneh. The perfect Goth Wedding in Lebanon.

The wedding party was minimalistic, a celebration of love, rather than a festival-like celebration with tons of unnecessary spendings to impress the invitees. On the contrary, the wedding was clearly designed by the couple, who were focused on the action of being married and having fun with friends rather than impressing people they don’t know. An example that should be followed by the soon to be wed couples.

Goth Themed Wedding In LebanonThe wedding cake was an awesome double-leveled black & white cake topped with 2 skulls and flowers. “Till death do us apart”, expressed Dina to a local TV station. The whole scenery kind of remind us of Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride movie. Doesn’t it?

A fairy tale wedding. Yes I said a fairy tale wedding, because the joy that you can clearly see on the faces of the newlyweds and their friends is priceless, and it was done in the best way possible and out of the box.

Nadim & Dina’s wedding broke the internet and the couple were congratulated for their awesome wedding and got a lot of support from the Lebanese Metal Community. The viral story was not all diamonds and roses, definitely some weren’t of favor of the ceremony theme, but who cares anyway. It was beautiful and we loved it.

Congratulations to Dina and Nadim, may your love reigns for infinity and beyond.

GALLERY Brick Floyd Live At Quadrangle February 8 2018

On February 8, Brick Floyd did one last show in Lebanon at Quadrangle – Hazmieh, before flying to the United States, for some shows and to start recording their debut album. The venue was packed, just like their previous show at Beirut Open Stage – Mar Mkhayel. If you would like to know how good or bad Brick Floyd are, you can check out our latest review of their show >here<. Continue reading

Brick Floyd Live At Beirut Open Space | REVIEW

Brick Floyd Live at Beirut Open Space REVIEW!

As we all know, the 19th of January was a busy night for all of them Pink Floyd fans. Pink Floyd’s music is kind of like psychedelic rock and is considered to have some trippy effects on the mind if delved into. Recreating their music isn’t like a bunch of 14 year olds covering “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, but needs a lot of experience in sound effects with instruments, which not too many bands in Lebanon might be capable of. But Brick Floyd sure can. They announced that their show would be held in Beirut Open Space, on Jan 19. What I like about that venue is that it is located in Mar Mkhayel and not on the main road, which means we don’t get stuck in traffic from the beginning of Gemayze street. Continue reading

Iraqi Dark Phantom Needs Your Help To Tour Syria

Lone survivors of the Iraqi Metal Scene, Dark Phantom, are planning to tour Syria. If you don’t know who Dark Phantom are yet, do check out our interview and article that have all you need to know about them >HERE<. Iraqi Dark Phantom needs your help to finance this tour. It is not not much to ask, the fund-raising is set to collect 1,200 €. Since they launched the campaign until today, they have collected (to date of writing this article) 322 €.

Murad Mohammed, the band’s guitarist and main-man, has written a message (read below) as a description of the purpose of the fund-raising. In this letter, the band’s leader sheds the light on the situation of Metal in Iraq, which is apparently “illegal” and their struggle in having any possibility in performing there.  The band then took the decision to visit their war-torn neighbors for multiple shows. But such shows need funding, hence the “money pot” project.

For Donations: LEETCHI

Or support by buying DARK PHANTOM’S album “Nation Of Dogs” >here<

Welcome to this money pot !

Hello earthlings, We’re Dark Phantom a Heavy Metal band from Iraq, We started this campaign to raise money to travel and tour in our neighboring war torn country Syria and play multiple Metal shows there with our original music, We work full time jobs and are trying our best to support the band and the Metal scene in both Iraq and Syria but our sole effort is not enough and we need financial help, We go through daily struggle to practice as a band wether it’s equipments that are too expensive for us or finding a place to practice since music in these forms are forbidden and prohibited by law and religion, Many times our shows get canceled mostly by the Ministry of Culture! They state that such music cane never be played in here, That’s why we need Metal patriots around the globe to help us out to travel to Syria to make a good impact in the Metal scene and spread the word and the music here in the Middle-east.

Best regards,

Murad Mohammed, Leader of Dark Phantom.
