Author Arto Mäenpää - 14.3.2023

Conception’s long awaited “State of Deception – deluxe edition” vinyl box set will be released March 10th. The box set includes the book “Retrospect – A brief history from 1989 to 1997” by Gwynyth H. Moaven, poster, a signed photo and a letter of authenticity.

In conjunction with this release, the band released a video for the song “Monument In Time” with a collage of private videos from recording studio, live and off stage from 1991 to now, edited by John Wins. The soundtrack is one of the new studio recordings, only available on the deluxe edition.

”The new video shows various snippets from our career all the way from the beginning. It’s a nice link to what the song is actually about; long lasting companionship and the very journey of Conception”. 

Roy Khan

The book is based on old and new interviews and lets the reader follow Conception through the nineties and learn about their success and challenges, including the events leading up to the long break from 1997. The book also includes private photos on and off stage.

”Revisiting the story of the nineties triggered a lot of great memories. We worked hard to offer our loyal fans a special and unique package, and we are proud to finally have put this together”.Tore Østby

The box set will only be available through Conception’s website and sold at Conception’s concerts. The band will starterd their upcoming tour with a show in their hometown Gjøvik, Norway, on March 11, followed by shows in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Spain and Portugal.
