Conan (GB)

Conan's genre description reads "caveman battle doom", and ever since their inception way back in 2006, they've never failed to live up to the promise. Every new album (from 2012's 'Monnos' to 'last year's 'Existential Void Guardian') invariably ends up in worldwide best-of-year lists, and that doesn't even count the bludgeoning live shows that have cemented their reputation as a scene essential. Much like their barbarian namesake, Conan are here to slay!
