CONTREVENT is a Jazz Rock/Fusion, Progressive Rock artist from Canada. Contrevent biography A few years after the Quebec prog boom was out, and all that remained was OFFENBACH (by then not prog anymore) and its non-prog offshoot CORBEAU, the scene was all but dead if you'll except the jazz group UZEB (going famous world-wide) and the gy (in the late 90's) THE BOX. Out of the blue appeared in 85, this jazzy-prog band called Contrevent that released their first album Jeu De Paume, which as you can probably guess went totally unnoticed.

A concept album is an album in which its tracks hold a larger purpose or meaning collectively than they do individually. This is typically achieved through a single central narrative or theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, or lyrical. Sometimes the term is applied to albums considered to be of "uniform excellence" rather than an LP with an explicit musical or lyrical motif. There is no consensus among music critics as to the specific criteria for what a "concept album" is.

Devil Doll - Dies Irae – I suppose it was inevitable that before long this band would find a concept such as this too good to pass up.
