Conan is a monumentally brutal three piece holding an iron-grip command over the powerchord changes and tempo shifts of the unholy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two weary yet defiant men have the task of vocalizing wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan’s metalized bombast. They bear it well, for the task is immense.

Now they bring this immense task back to North America next month on tour with North, in support of latest album “Revengeance” that was released in January 2016 via Napalm Records. Check out a tour trailer below.

In addition to the headline run, Conan will also take part in this year’s Maryland Death Fest and 71 Grind Fest in Colorado Springs, CO. A complete list of dates can be found after the jump.

The latest single from Mortiis’ “The Great Corrupter” album comes courtesy of the Japanese dark ambient noise artist Merzbow, who twists “Bleed Like You” into a completely new form.

“This is not a remix – it’s abuse,” said Mortiis. “The good kind. If you prefer your music traditional, and your audio all pleasant and polished, you should consider walking away now. It is Merzbow mutilating Mortiis. I never really thought that that was going happen, and I don’t think anyone else did either!”

Much like his own original recordings, Merzbow’s interpretation of “Bleed Like You” is an instrumental attack on the senses.

“We’ve been trying to think a bit different art-wise for the last few singles,” said Mortiis. “I thought the time was right to try art directions that were not typical of Mortiis to take. The Merzbow remix single art is another idea I’ve had for a long time. As usual, it’s morphed from the original idea, into a different beast almost entirely, in time. But what else is new?”

Crusty death / doom outfit Vallenfyre will release third album, “Fear Those Who Fear Him,” via Century Media Records on June 2nd. Now, the band proudly presents the first single and video clip for this opus.

Greg Mackintosh (vocals and guitar) comments: “’Kill All Your Masters’ is about the frustration and anger we feel towards the many people and regimes in positions of power, whether it be political, religious or corporate, inflicting crimes and injustices on an often docile and enslaved population, who in many ways seem happy to be told what to do by anything from ancient books to lifestyle magazines.”

Recorded by the band’s new core line-up consisting of Greg Mackintosh (vocals and guitar), Hamish Glencross (guitar and bass), and Waltteri Väyrynen (drums), “Fear Those Who Fear Him” was once produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails,etc.) at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Beastmilk, YOB) at Audiosiege Mastering in Portland, OR.
