Conan Blood Eagle Review

I think it's the vocals. The vocals and the drums. The vocals, the drums and the guitar tone. But really, it's the vocals. Doom metal, like grindcore, is an inherently restrictive genre and the question is always: what distinguishes this band from another? And, on this album, Conan have found that elusive set of criteria.

The foundation stone, the building block are those astonishing dual vocals (Jon Davis/Phil Coumbe) developed since 'Horseback Battlehammer'- calling out from beyond the mountains, from below the oceans, echoing through the arctic tundra and the searing African...

This is harsh, pounding...

If someone asks me about what new bands to check out one of the first bands out of my mouth every time for the last few years has been Conan. Since my cohorts Gary and Colum introduced Conan to me i've been listening to them non stop waiting for each new release.  Their demos, splits and albums have changed my very definition of heavy.  Whilst their studio releases have been jaw droppingly heavy it's their monstrous and LOUD live shows that gets everyone talking. Earplugs are a must unless you want several days of tinnitus, which some fans seems happy to deal with.  From playing smaller shows throughout the UK they have gone on to play the likes of Damnation Festival and what is now quite the legendary performance at Roadburn Festival in 2012.  Fans from across the continent crammed into the...
