ConspiresTo / Bio

A two piece metal outfit from Dereham in Norfolk, comprising of Wayne Stokes who undertakes all of the vocal duties, and Lee Macey who takes care of all the music, plus the studio work. Formed in 2009, the pair spent the first year and a half honing their unique sound which first manifested itself on their first album “Redemption” which was released in May 2011. A full on metal affair, blending fast, heavy riffs with soaring atmospherics, and in your face vocals with big melodies, drawing influences from Kill Switch Engage, Devin Townsend and Atreyu.

Hot on the heals of their first album, Conspires To... dived straight into their next recording, a full on concept album about a deadly virus wiping out most of humanity. Symbiosis was released in October 2012 and continues in a similar vein, but stretches the boundaries a bit more this time around, with heavy sections getting heavier and the lighter more melodic sections adding acoustic guitars, and piano.

In 2012 we are lucky enough to be approached by John's Rock Show initially on Birmingham City Radio, and we provided a number of track for them to play. We are now receive regular air play, and were the first band to achieve the number one status on their unsigned rock chart show, closely followed by two further number ones, all with different tracks.

In 2013 the writing is continuing at the same blistering pace, with not one but two, albums currently under construction. Although being written in parallel, the heavier of the two named "Nebula" is likely to be the first to surface later in 2013. This follows on in the style of Symbiosis, but with a slightly more atmospheric, but edgy feel, and lyrically tackles religion and the universe. Then there is the mellower side to the band coming out, with predominantly acoustic songs that cover far more emotional aspects of life, with a tinge of the paranormal thrown in.
