You wanna hear some seriously filthy sludge? Because that's what Conan is bringing to the table today in all its dripping, disgusting glory. The band is now streaming "Levitation Hoax" alongside the announcement of their first new record in four years Evidence Of Immortality.
"'Levitation Hoax' grew from a riff that was created in December 2019, when we were on tour with Cavalera Conspiracy," said Conan guitarist and singer Jon Davis. "The song begins as a thrash metal onslaught and just gets heavier and heavier as it progresses. It was a fun track to write, and has some of my favourite lyrics from the album."
"Evidence Of Immortality was written between December 2019 and late 2021. As such, it has absorbed a lot of the emotions that were flowing through our lives then. The lyrics were written on the eve of the war in Ukraine so, naturally, they deal with subjects such as victory and defeat, loss and hope, pain and determination, fear and hatred. Movies such as Conquest, Lord of The Rings, Fire and Ice, Krull, Beast Master and Clash of The Titans once again provided inspiration for the themes of the songs, as we maintain our determination to not write about real world events. You want to escape? Throw this record on, turn the lights off and turn it up until your fucking ears bleed."
Evidence Of Immortality was produced by Chris Fielding, mastered by James Plotkin, and given artwork by Tony Roberts. The album also sees ex-Conan member Dave Perry perform on the track "Grief Sequence." Pre-orders are available here.
