Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. Remember that sentence, for it is writ large in virgin blood on the walls of the forgotten temple of Bol-Krastor, deep in the steaming forests of forgotten Lemuria. Conan, a monumentally brutal three piece (in the grand tradition of all the hallowed three pieces through time) hold a sinew-tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised powerchord changes and tempo-shifts of the anti-holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two weary yet defiant men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan’s metalized bombast. They bear it well, for the task is immense.
Hear the roar of battle. Smell the stench of split blood. A thousand heads piled high like a grim mound of suffering - a blasphemy to nature. Hail Conan!
Boar Worship is a two-piece band that currently operates in Denver, CO. Bolstered by heavily amplified guitar progressions (Nick Angelo) and a destructively forceful rhythm section (D. Brigman), the duo creates a dissonant hybrid of many metal-influenced genres while maintaining a sincerely hardbitten approach to their craft.
Rooted in DIY ethos, the band originally formed in 2009 while members were living in Albuquerque, NM. Year one spawned “The Decline and Fall of the Christian Empire”, a scornful five song EP - documenting a brief yet ferocious period of the band’s existence as a four-piece. The 2009 EP was self-recorded/released and available free of charge at shows. After some time and various line-up incarnations, Mike Day recorded the “Pro Death” EP at Knife City Studios in Albuquerque. Shortly after that release, Boar Worship relocated to Oakland, CA in 2012 and began performing as a collaborative effort between Nick and Joseph Angelo. They recorded a willfully obscure “self-titled” EP which was released in 2015 as a double 7” clear lathe-cut, limited to 25 copies.
The present line-up is a raw and direct display of years devoted to creating unapologetic music that nods to their past-lives and aggressively claws at the days ahead - without sympathy or desire to adopt a formula exhausted by an over-saturated/grossly-imitated scene.
