4 stars It has been a long time since my last listen of a progressive metal album with a true extreme metal sound of the 80's. Prog metal band Superior came close, at least with their Behind album. But Conception here really succeeded: actually, this progressive metal album has an OUTSTANDING power metal sound very similar to the Whitesnake or the Impellitteri of the 80's. The album compositions are however not as refined as progressive metal bands like Symphony X, but the quality of the thundering bass- rhythmic electric guitar sound is absolutely irreproachable. The guitarist plays for the Ark band, and his sound here is much more straightforward and extreme. Ark is also more jazzy and varied. Let's say the style of In your multitude is a bit like the prog metal band Threshold. The lead & backing vocals are absolutely visceral and VERY well suited for a straightforward prog metal album like In Your Multitude: Queensryche's Geoff Tate and Threshold's Damian Wilson are good comparisons.

"Solar Serpent" has THE absolutely PERFECT rhythmic combination of bass and electric guitar: the power, the razor and the bottom of this VERY elastic part of the music is just jaw-dropping: only EXTREME bands like Headpins, Judas Priest of the 80's and Accept have a comparable sound in terms of sheer power! JUST PLAY IT .... LOUD! The miscellaneous pleasant modern floating keyboards are rather atmospheric and sometimes excellent acoustic guitars, fast electric guitar solos and fast bass drums bring some variety
