Fans of amps, volume and low frequencies, rejoice: Brit doom behemoths Conan will be releasing their new album, Existential Void Guardian, on September 14. And here, we have the premiere of the incredible video for the awesomely-named Volt Thrower. Check it out below…
“Volt Thrower is maybe the most ‘pop’ track on the album,” explains frontman Jon Davis. “Sometimes a song just happens without you trying too hard and this is it. Chris [Fielding, bass] was making a cup of tea, Johnny [King, drums] was in the live room at Skyhammer Studio, and I just said, ‘Play along to this’. We jammed the song, jammed it again, then Chris came in and we had a cup of tea, then we recorded it in one take. It’s a song about triumph over adversity – an army on the brink of defeat is able to summon the end of evil, the banisher of hatred. From the lake of frozen souls, all hail Volt Thrower. If only life was this easy.”
