Brief History :
From thrashing the world’s stage and being metal as hell, all the way to exploring the inner psyche for insight and enlightenment, Conception Of Being is here to thrash with their brothers and sisters in metal and wander the world as we know it, and as we don’t. It all started with a passion for music, and a desire to create it and make an impact along the way. After meeting at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach at a Lamb of God, Hatebreed, and 3 Inches Of Blood show, Coby came to jam with Garrett and Evan, and later brought in Brandon. So were the beginnings of Conception Of Being… After months of honing everyone’s individual skills, becoming an effective band and team, finding a permanent bassist in Grayson Clark, writing material, and creating a name that would serve as to explain the bands meaning and to invoke thought and ideas, Conception Of Being began moving up the social hierarchy of the local metal scene and playing shows more and more often, garnering more fans and friends with each outing. As of most recently, Conception Of Being has recorded 4 songs which are on their “Unearthed” EP. One of the proudest moments so far in the bands history is when Conception played the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, the very place where Conception Of Being was conceived! Thus marked a proud moment for the band, having so quickly come so far in their quest of musical conquest. Conception Of Being is continuing to work forward, progressing musically as a band and as individuals, and continuing also to further unravel this tale of existence, telling it as the story unfolds. Come and join us for it.
Career Highlight :
Getting to play the very first Myrtle Beach Rocks! Metal at the House Of Blues here in Myrtle Beach, the very place where the band first met.
Future Plans :
To finish our debut album, tour in support of it, and continue playing music and enjoying life, and if hopefully the right people see us at the right times, maybe our future will also turn out economically suitable.
Tell us something interesting / amusing / stupid about the band :
We are all either high-school/starting college age kids, who really just want to have a good time playing the music we do, goof off as we do, but at the same time act mature and get things to done to accomplish our primary goal of succeeding in this business.
Who would be your ideal tour-mates ?
Behemoth, Cradle Of Filth, Slayer, Carach Angren, etc.
And what would be on the rider ?
Not entirely sure as of right now.
