When I think of the name “Conan”, my brain always draws this image of Ahhnold being all brooding and destructive. Sure, he didn’t come across as the brightest guy, but he was powerful and heavy-handed. I think these qualities suit England’s doom triforce Conan. You know, all except for the “not being the brightest” statement. I think these dudes are very intelligent and extremely capable musicians.
I am fairly new to the band, which formed in 2006. This morning was actually the first taste of the band’s personal brand of doom and I am loving it. Their new song “Hawk As Weapon” is a six minute slab of crushing death. The track comes off of Conan‘s forthcoming album Monnos which will be released on April 2nd via Burning World Records. You can check out the track below (streaming via Brooklyn Vegan) and see the artwork for Monnos at the top of this post. Check it out and get into it. These dudes fucking destroy.
