Conan Interview 17/09/11

It was our honour to have gotten the chance to get Jon (gutiarist/ vocals) from Conan (Burning World/ Head Of Crom) to answer a few questions. 

After seeing them play at Royal Park Cellars with Wizard's Beard, Five Will Die, ZARK! and Sloth Hammer we were eager to find out more about the existence of the these 3 heavy gentleman.

These questions were fielded to Jon Davis via email on 17th September, 2011 and here is what he said:

Filth Fest @ The Well, Leeds 29/10/11

Soooo many good bands on this all-dayer... and for £7 adv, who can complain? For a chance to check the bands out in advance, have a read through our descriptions and check some of the links out, some great info on there.

PALEHORSE (Eyes Of Sound)
Palehorse's style and approach is heavy to say the very least and is underpinned by their distinctively characteristic subject matter. Song names such as 'One, But Not Metallica' and 'How To Avoid Huge Riffs' cement a sense of humour into their music. And, why not? Sometimes one can grow weary of the constant over-usage of 'epic' and dark imagery forever typecast within the slow and doomy riff worshipping genres of the modern day. I mean, don't get me wrong we love this kind of imagery, and when its done well, there is no better alternative, but it makes a refreshing change nevertheless. More to the point, Palehorse are original and thats what appeals to us. A great mixture between the bleakness of drone, the disparity of sludge and the stoner groove we all love.

Lavotchkin / Humanfly / Beards / False Flags @ Santiagos, Leeds. 01/10/11

Big Spaceship Presents:

1st October, @ Santiagos Bar, Leeds

Unrelenting sludgey post-hardcore from Newcastle. These guys have been to Leeds and ripped it up a few times in the past, but that doesn't mean that this time is any different. Their album 'Widow Country' has had a bit of time to sink in since summer last year and with a new split 7" with Leeds metallers End To Empires out now, what better time to release their blood-soaked, raging filth on the city of Leeds once again. If you are a bit shy, and a bit reserved, I would probably leave that behind because by the first song you will be pounding your sodden chest with fist clenched, screaming at your relative counterpart from across the room.
They have been described as "possibly the closest thing you will ever get to a UK equivalent to Botch".
