Conan - Monnos

'Monnos'
Conan
2012

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Stoner/Doom Metal, Drone Metal

For Fans Of: Bongripper, Saint Vitus, High Priest of Saturn

Conan can be best described as a dense and suffocating wave of extremely fuzzy doom. Definitely living up to it's barbarian name, Conan gives you an sense of being bludgeoned to death just as good ol' Arnie himself would do in the original 1982 film- mainly by completely overwhelming you with it's harsh, but epic tone. While almost reaching into the realm of drone with its extremely distorted guitars that pound on and on and on without terribly complex riffs, the drums work in a similar way to the album God is Good that I previously posted, but in a much more forceful sense- feeling slightly tribal or even downright barbaric (sorry, I couldn't resist). The insane thickness of the album's atmosphere is extremely well done and definitely makes it an interesting, and sometimes grueling experience to make it through it's entirety of forty minutes. You'll definitely need to set aside some time in your day to listen to this one all the way through as it seems intended to be listened to, but if you're a doom or drone fan you certainly won't regret it.
