Conscience is a metal band which has sets its musical direction in mid-2001. Conscience spent a lot of time on stage, thus earning a well-deserved reputation as an engaging band which performance live you can always count on. This reputation led them to open for Nightwish in front of an audience of 6500, even before the release of their first album.
The band engages in a series of concerts in several towns throughout France in order to meet a growing audience. Indeed, in 2005 the band confirms its promising future: after being invited to perform at one of the greatest French Metal Festivals (The RaismesFest, alongside Sonata Arctica, Dead Soul Tribe, and Anathema to cite but a few), Conscience is featured with Epica at the legendary "Loco" in Paris. Encouraged by thins string of successes, Conscience is releasing its first album entitled Half-Sick Of Shadows.
Conscience is composed of Nicolas Duc-Dudon (drums and percussions, Matthieu Gerbin (guitar and lead vocals), Cyril Stauder (bass and vocals), and Thomas Jaegle (guitar and vocals).
The influences of the members of Conscience are very diverse, but find a common ground in Progressive Metal, by melting together all types of music and all types of musical construction.
Conscience finds inspiration in the poems of Nicolas Moulard, a young French author who has been living in the United States for some years. His writing determines the composition of the songs of Conscience, notably the moods, atmospheres and emotions which are found within.
Conscience is often compared to Pain Of Salvation or Queensrÿche.
