6.11. CONAN + UN + SIXES

Conan,  a  monumentally  brutal  three  piece  (in  the  grand  tradition  of  all  the  hallowed  three  pieces  through  time)  hold  a  sinew-tight  line  and  an  iron-grip  command  over  the  uber-synchronised  powerchord  changes  and  tempo-shifts  of  the  anti-holy  trio  of  bass,  drums  and  guitar.  Two  weary  yet  defiant  men  have  the  task  of  vocalising  wretched  thoughts  over  the  turgid  weight  of  Conan’s  metalized  bombast.  They  bear  it  well,  for  the  task  is  immense.

Hear  the  roar  of  battle.  Smell  the  stench  of  split  blood.  A  thousand  heads  piled  high  like  a  grim  mound  of  suffering  –  a  blasphemy  to  nature.  Hail Conan!

If troglodytes could have gotten their paws on a Fuzzthrone or other fuzz pedals…they would have probably bashed each other`s skulls in. Conan on the other hand use these beautiful tools to wrench the maximum out of their legendary Caveman Battle Doom.

The British trio presents a tar monster named Existential Void Guardian that seems even more menacing as soon as it gets high on its own downtuned groove frenzy.

Two years after the remarkable Revengeance, Conan once more leave us baffled with a previously unknown side to dual vocal sludge – behold the painful melody splinters ‘Eye To Eye To Eye‘ leaves behind or the insane grind intermezzo that is ‘Paincantation‘. True beauty lies in dissonance, and it always will.

UN is a doom metal band from Seattle, WA. UN received critical praise from across the heavy metal underground for their groundbreaking sophomore opus, “Sentiment” (released September 28, 2018 via Translation Loss Records).
Praised by Decibel Magazine, Metal Injection, Revolver Magazine, Stereogum, and more, Sentiment earned widespread recognition and became 2018’s most sought after doom record.

Unafraid to reveal somber themes of tragedy, sorrow, and isolation, UN fueled each note of Sentiment with purpose, resulting in overwhelming waves of thunderously crushing doom and emotive sonic soundscapes. Blending soaring post-rock, shoe-gaze, and funeral doom, UN have carefully crafted monoliths that deeply explore the romance and poetry of fragile human existence making Sentiment one of the year’s most gripping and emotive doom records.

Sixes are a blackened doom/sludge band from Southern California.
They are known to elicit the statement of “Worship Amps Not Gods” as part of their ethos.

“If I could describe SIXES in one word, it’d be “Grindhouse.” Not because their craft is shabby, but because the approach to their core focus, even in this day and age, is taboo, violent, and abrasive.”
-Elizabeth Gore, Doomed & Stoned.

“This has all that a growing sludge fan needs: slow riffs – check, sandy growling bass – check, claustrophobic drums – check, feedback – check”
-Regnars Breikss, Shit Regnar Says.

“A powerful knockout session to your senses.”
-Marty Jones, Vitriol Inc.
