After announcing the release of their new album State Of Deception for April 3rd, 2020, Norwegian prog metal band Conception now present the first listenable and visible offering of their new work. The single Waywardly Broken and the accompanying lyric video take the listener on an emotional journey through a time of emotional turmoil and the way out of it. See the video here:
Guitarist Tore Ostby about the evolution of the song: “Waywardly Broken actually has its roots from back in the early 2000s, when Roy and I shared a house in Oslo – he was in Kamelot and I was in ARK. We jammed out a verse part on guitar and keyboard, but didn’t add the basic chorus until around 2006, and then finally the string melody, mid section, arrangement and vocal melodies when we were up in the Norwegian mountains somewhen around 2017.
Apart from the musical side, the song also connects on a personal level, singer Roy Khan states: “All four members of Conception have had their turns with mental hardships and rough times. Waywardly Broken is about finding hope and believing in something larger than yourself in struggle for survival.”
Waywardly Broken is the first single off the upcoming album State Of Deception and can be downloaded and streamed on all platforms now:
