Conan are a doom metal band based out of Liverpool, England. Founded in 2006 initially as a duo before quickly morphing into a trio. Conan’s sound is characterised by a heavily distorted and downtuned sound that the band describes as “Caveman Battle Doom”, drawing heavily from Norse mythology and fantasy themes. Gaining notoriety with 2012’s Monnos, Conan would attain further critical acclaim upon signing with Napalm Records and releasing subsequent works such as Blood Eagle and Revengeance.
One of the most revered doom metal acts of the 2000s into the next decade, Conan have released four studio albums to date with a fifth in the works, among several splits and live albums. Along with several releases, Conan have toured all over the world including Europe, North America, Australia and Japan. The band’s name is derived from the iconic fantasy hero Conan The Barbarian, created by Robert E. Howard and premiered in Weird Tales circa December 1932.
