I’m sure you already know, but anyway I like to bother you with news like this: UK sludge-doom warbringers Conan are returning to Europe this month, bringing chaos and maximum noise to 27 cities from west to east. The tour kicks off next weekend at Desertfest and you sure don’t want to miss them!
Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. Remember that sentence, for it is writ large in virgin blood on the walls of the forgotten temple of Bol-Krastor, deep in the steaming forests of forgotten Lemuria. Conan, a monumentally brutal three piece (in the grand tradition of all the hallowed three pieces through time) hold a sinew-tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised powerchord changes and tempo-shifts of the anti-holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two weary yet defiant men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan’s metalized bombast. They bear it well, for the task is immense. Hear the roar of battle. Smell the stench of split blood. A thousand heads piled high like a grim mound of suffering – a blasphemy to nature.
Liverpool’s heavier-than-thou battle doom trio Conan are touring to promote their latest offering ‘Existential Void Guardian” (Napalm Records) and have so far delivered apocalyptic heaviness throughout the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Japan and of course, Europe. There is nothing heavier, there ARE none heavier. Strap in, focus, ready your defences, Conan are coming to you.
