Conan Recruits New Bassist

Conan's new album "Blood Eagle" is due out March 3rd (EU) and March 11th (North America) via Napalm Records, and the full album is now available for streaming at this location. The band has also now issued the following announcement about bringing on a new bassist:

"Chris Fielding has replaced Phil Coumbe on bass and backing vocals.

"There are two ways of doing this….. The first one is to react quickly and tell the world the minute the news occurs and then scramble around panicking….. Or the other way is to wait until everything has settled down and let people know when everything is sorted.

"We chose the latter.

"We finished recording Blood Eagle at the end of October 2013, looking forward to the year ahead and slowly making plans for our tours in March, April and May. However, on the 15th November Paul and I received a message from Phil stating that he wished to leave the band. For reasons that will remain personal to Phil he felt that he could no longer commit to the band and did not feel that he could honour the touring arrangements that we were putting together for 2014.

Conan Signs With Napalm Records

U.K. "Caveman Battle Doom" act Conan, featuring ex-Black Magician bassist/vocalist John McNulty, have signed on with Napalm Records for the band's sophomore full length release, the followup to the 2012 debut "Monnos." No time frame was announced for the new LP.

Napalm Records commented: "Conan's unique style of Doom/Drone/Stoner Metal won over audiences at the Roadburn Festival 2012 consequently resulting in the release of the live album 'Mount Wrath: Live at Roadburn 2012'. Past shows with label mates AHAB and an invitation to play Desertfest London 2013 have further established CONAN as the DOOM Powerhouse to watch out for! Welcome to the Napalm Family!"

The band commented: "We are very happy to associated with a label such as Napalm Records / Spinning Goblin and are looking forward to seeing how the new record comes out. We turned down two other record deals, both from labels that we could have quite justifiably agreed terms with, but for several reasons we wanted to move on with Napalm once they showed interest.

"We have enjoyed excellent relationships with every label we have worked with and it would have taken something extremely special to convince us to move away from Burning World Records, with whom we have enjoyed a particularly happy period. Thanks to JP, Jurgen and Desiree for helping us into this position and supporting us so far. Everything that comes our way is a huge bonus, for we give everything and expect nothing. To be considered worthy of a label such as Napalm Records is a pretty big thing for us so we'll give it our best shot." More...

Doommantia Benefit Compilation Streaming

The first ever Doommantia compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1," has been streaming online over at bandcamp. The anthology features over 39 bands ranging from War Injun to Bongripper, and was released to benefit Doommantia chief Ed Barnard. For those unaware, Ed has been homeless now for a couple of months but still manages to keep the Doommantia site viable online.

Ed used to have a good job until he suffered a series of two heart attacks. Those events, plus the exorbitant cost of cardial medications made paying the rent an impossibility and got him evicted from his place in Aberdeen, Washington. Now homeless, the doom and metal community has been rallying around his cause with benefit concerts and now this compilation, "Doommantia Vol. 1." All proceeds from it will help the Australian Mr. Barnard regain his self-sufficiency.
