Since forming in 2013 UK label Blackbow Records has continued to release music created and appreciated by those who worship tone and riffs. Now in 2021 they are set to continue this trend with a new split LP of pure heaviness from Belfast based, sludge-juggernauts Slomatics alongside the blistering and crushing sounds of Ungraven. With 3 new tracks from each band the split is set for release on 5th March.Continue reading UNGRAVEN & SLOMATICS ANNOUNCE NEW SPLIT EP
Heavily distorted and down-tuned sounds turn the legendary fields of the German Freak Valley Festival into madness. The undisputed masters of fantastical otherworldly sludgy doom, CONAN, will cast a spell on the listener and propel them straight into the crowd, captured in dust.
Three years after the release of the ferocious caveman battle doom masterpiece Existential Void Guardian, CONAN waves the flag of Pain again and releases Live At Freak Valley on March 12, 2021 via Napalm Records. After their 2013 live album, recorded at Roadburn festival, and the self-released Live At Bannermans, their third live album could not be recorded at a better place than Freak Valley Festival.
While constantly touring all over Europe and the United States, CONAN are currently putting the final touches on the follow up to their latest 2016-studio record ‘Revengeance‘! Now the band unveiled first details about their upcoming full length, titled ‘Existential Void Guardian‘ and which will see the light of day on August 31st 2018 with Napalm Records!
Says guitarist & vocalist Jon Paul Davis: “Existential Void Guardian expands upon our previous lyrical and conceptual ideas. Bringing the listener’s focus from the screens of our favourite arcade machines to the minds of the characters through who’s eyes we view the 2 dimensional plane. Chris Fielding produced this album at Skyhammer Studio and we had audio wizard James Plotkin handle the mastering again. Artwork will be by Tony Roberts.”
Beside a heavy UK-touring schedule with MONOLORD this Spring, CONAN are currently on tour in North America. Make sure to catch these doom heavyweights and their massive wall of sound live on the following dates!
