Conan - Revengeance

Conan have rapidly made a name for themselves in the past few years as one of the heaviest and most wonderfully crushing metal bands in the world. There is something uttterly devastating about how Conan come out of the gates with their drop tunings and doubled vocals to create music that is totally and completely unique. Sure, they've had a couple of lineup changes in recent years, but even that doesn't seem to phase them. Instead they blaze forward, heavier than ever, destined to destroy and doomed to die.

There is something strangely charming about a band as balls out heavy as Conan. The way that they lurch forward is downright terrifying, Jon Davis's every chord crunches into your gut and leaves you gasping for air. Somehow, despite all logic, this is Conan's heaviest record yet. The interplay between Davis and Chris Fielding has been perfectly refined after months of hard touring - helping to make this one of Conan's most exciting records to date. It has a feel all of its own that hints at a bold new chapter in the Conan legend - one where dual vocalists come together to annihilate ear drums and make the world suffer.

Revengeance is an album for the ages - one that stands tall above any other doom release and squeezes the very life out of it. Conan have found their own niche, created their own void if you will and are now spilling out, forcing the world to embrace them and realize that these Merseyside natives are more than just a doom band. This is a group who force your body into unholy motion and our knees to genuflect before an almighty ungodly power. Conan are doom icons in the making, and Revengeance puts them among the highest in the pantheon.
