About Concept of God

 

CONCEPT OF GOD which features current members of Solitude Aeturnus: Robert Lowe (vocals), Steve Moseley (guitar) James Martin (bass) and former Solitude Aeturnus member John Covington (drums) began in late 1999 not long after Solitude released their fifth album Adagio. As Solitude entered into what would become their longest break between albums, music was being written by Steve Moseley for a side project of a slightly different nature. As fate would have it, Robert Lowe was also developing a "Concept" for a side project, and presented Steve with lyrics and ideas that he had been working on. After agreeing to focus their efforts, the CONCEPT OF GOD project began to take shape. John Covington came aboard on drums, and long time friend River Tunnell stepped in on bass. This line up played quite a few regional shows with different keyboard players in the mix as well. Eventually River was replaced with James Martin whom Steve had worked with in other projects over the years. In December 2000 after many months of live shows, this line up entered Pineapple studio in Arlington Texas to record nine songs. Shortly afterwards problems arose with Solitude, and side projects were put on hold. The Concept recordings were never completed.

As band members changed in Solitude, and new material was being written for their next album Alone, it seemed that the CONCEPT OF GOD project would never see the light of day. In
July 2007 after almost seven years the recordings were taken to Nomad Studio in Carrollton Texas and put together in their proper form by the master engineer Mr. J.T. Longoria. The album was produced by Steve Moseley and mastered by Steve and Nomad Studio owner Gary Long. Massacre Records in Germany will be releasing this debut album entitled "VISIONS" on November 9th 2007. The music is a mix of Power and Doom, with a hint of Technical Edge that is sure to please fans of Solitude Aeturnus and all who like it HEAVY.

, VISIONS has become as much a spectacle for the eyes as it is music for the ears. This new album from CONCEPT OF GOD offers a unique glimpse into the lives of a few Solitude Aeturnus members during their long hiatus between 1999 and 2006, proving that true metal is alive and well.
