Bow down and hail Conan, as England’s doom metal masters strike back again: Following their much acclaimed 2018 full-length, »Existential Void Guardian«, and their »Live At Freak Valley« record released just last year, the trio’s fifth studio album, »Evidence Of Immortality«, is out now on Napalm Records!
Conan’s new magnum opus overruns you like a steamroller. The British kings of brutally heavy slowness push their down-tuned axes and cranked pedals to the limit, crushing ears and minds when huge, rumbling chords and malevolent riffs muscle their way in over lances of infinite distortion and drums that pummel and thunder like the hands of a god against the gates of hell. As previously released album singles proved, Conan are the masters of their craft, while Jon Davis spits his lyrics over the uber-synchronized power chord changes and tempo shifts of the unholy trio of bass, drums and guitar.
To celebrate their new album in style, today, Conan have shared a colossal new single, »Ritual Of Anonymity«, alongside a lyric video.

Says Jon Paul Davis: “Hey everyone, this is Jon. So, the album is out and soon to be in your hands, and then your ears. We are excited for you hear what we have created, so set some time aside, turn this up and enjoy. We also created a third video, this time for »Ritual Of Anonymity«.
KILL KILL KILL.”
»Evidence Of Immortality« was produced by Chris Fielding and mastered by James Plotkin. The album also sees former band member Dave Perry perform on the track “Grief Sequence”. The album’s artwork was provided by the skilled hand and mind of Tony Roberts, architect of the Conan visual style since day one and their debut release, Horseback Battle Hammer.
“»Evidence Of Immortality« was written between December 2019 and late 2021. As such, it has absorbed a lot of the emotions that were flowing through our lives then,” Davis explains. “The lyrics were written on the eve of the war in Ukraine so, naturally, they deal with subjects such as victory and defeat, loss and hope, pain and determination, fear and hatred. Movies such as Conquest, Lord of The Rings, Fire and Ice, Krull, Beast Master and Clash of The Titans once again provided inspiration for the themes of the songs, as we maintain our determination to not write about real world events. You want to escape? Throw this record on, turn the lights off and turn it up until your fucking ears bleed.”

• 2LP Gatefold Black (ltd 300)
