Visions: Conan – Foehammer

Shit goddamn. This is one of the best videos I’ve come across for a while. Hail Conan, Liverpudlian lords of the riff, who have unveiled this amazing clip for their track ‘Foehammer’, taken from their forthcoming Napalm Records debut ‘Blood Eagle‘. After a delightful birth via cordyceps, a scorpion/squid- like creature starts to reign over the land, assuming various parts and continuing to grow in size, until it climbs on out of this world, enslaves our planet, and slices the moon in half. Superb. Top animation all round, and the track bloody rocks.

You can now pre-order ‘Blood Eagle direct from Napalm Records, released on Monday 3rd March in the UK/Rest of Europe.

‘Kin Hell Fest announces five more bands + early bird tickets still selling!


The ever rising juggernaut of extremity that is ‘Kin Hell Fest went and announced another five crushing bands to the line-up recently, and it was a corker. The biggest news is the confirmation of two of the UK’s finest acts, at polar ends of their careers and indeed for speed. Welsh death metal legends Desecration will be hitting Leeds to flay and slay the audience. As will rising Liverpudlian merchants of doom Conan; widely appraised by new and old fans alike, they will surely be one of the highlights of the weekend’s activities. Also appearing will be Portugal’s¬†seasoned goregrind maniacs Holocausto Canibal, London snuffers Basement Torture Killings, and New Surrey based metallic hardcore crew Palm Reader.

They join a heap of awesome bands in what is set to be the nastiest, heaviest ‘Kin Hell Fest yet. There’s still more bands to be announced including two headliners to go alongside the already confirmed big name draw of Anaal Nathrakh.

Meanwhile early bird tickets are still on sale until the end of November, priced at £49 for all the above bands and more to be confirmed over three days, plus merch stalls, food & drink.

For early bird tickets and more information, head to the official ‘Kin Hell Fest website and hit them up on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and updates and other wholesome meaty chunks!
