A Home We Lost
The Conquering began from the ashes of a band called Dark Night in Eden. The original lineup consisted of Christopher, Jason, and Dustin who played bass. Dustin was in and out of the band numerous times sometimes on bass and other times filling the second guitar position. The first self-released album (Of War and Witchery) was recorded in the year 2000. Dustin then left the band for the first time and work was begun on the second album (Grandiose Explorations of a Darker Subconscious) between Christopher and Jason. Near the end of the second album's recording phase Dustin rejoined the band and laid down tracks for the bass and second guitars. Later Dustin quit for the final time. Jason had the idea to go ahead and record another album as a two piece and Christopher began writing for the third album (Realizations Closer to the Absolute Truth). Christopher and Jason performed all the instrumentation themselves and nearing the album's completion found another bass player and second guitar player. Lloyd (second guitar) and Brian (bass) were with the band for a few years playing many shows in and around the Columbus area. They eventually grew tired of some of Christopher's antics and left the band. Lloyd later rejoined for a brief time but decided to focus his energies on his own project. Again, Christopher and Jason decided to forge ahead, determining that they're just too damn hard to work with, and work was begun for the fourth album. While rehearsing for the fourth album Jason and Christopher were introduced to Charlie through Jesse from Crush Efekt. Christopher and Jason decided to give it another shot with a new member and began the trudge to complete another album, 'relentless intrusions into infrastructures of gods'. Later James joined the band to fill the second guitar player slot. Some shows were played and more writing commenced. 'A Home We Lost' was recorded in late 2007 to prepare for a 2008 release. Also, a 10 year re-recording of some of the bands favorite old songs is planned.
