This Conception is a five-piece band incorporating both the styles of distinguished metalcore and modernized post-hardcore. Inspired by technical acts, the quintet strives to catch the listener off guard with tempo changes and sudden-but-smooth transitions, further sealed by a diversity ranging from emotional melodies to merciless breakdowns.
Dismissing the typical route of immediately playing shows for instant gratification, the five musicians instead worked vigorously over an entire year in their drummer's basement, constantly perfecting both their songs and performance. This "perfect-then-perform" mentality sets This Conception apart from many newcomers.
The band is finally ready to release their finished material, leaving behind them many musical struggles, imperfect songs, and trashed ideas. The five musicians will try to place their work on a pedestal hopefully for the world to appreciate in some way or another. With a message of rejecting idiotic societal norms, and holding steady to an ongoing progression, This Conception seeks not only to enrich our ears, but to enrich our minds.
