Conan Split with Slomatics Due in May

You might recall in our interview last September that Conan guitarist Jon Davis alluded to recording in December for an upcoming split with Slomatics to be released on Head of Crom Records. Well, it looks like that split has finally come to fruition (with badass artwork, no less), and will be released May 9. Fans of downtuned ultra-rumble, take note.

Says the PR wire:

Head of Crom Records is proud to announce that the Conan vs. Slomatics split album will be released on May 9. The album is currently being mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Isis, Earth), and will be released on a limited edition sky blue 12”.

Conan are a drop-F tuned doom behemoth hailing from Liverpool, whose debut release Horseback Battle Hammer (2010 Throne/Aurora Borealis) received rave reviews, and is now all but sold out. They have teamed up with Northern Irish riff-worshippers Slomatics to create a dual-pronged sludge attack in the form of this sensationally heavy split album.

The fantastic artwork is courtesy of Tony Roberts, who has also done designs for the likes of High on Fire, Electric Wizard and Unearthly Trance.

A CD version of the release will also be available via Aurora Borealis.

Conan will be supporting Buzzov*en at The Well, Leeds on April 4.
