Am 19. August melden sich die englischen Doom Metal Master CONAN mit ihrem neuen Longplayer „Evidence of Immortality“ zurück. Bereits jetzt stellt das Trio mit `Levitation Hoax´ die erste Single aus ihrem fünften Studioalbum mit einem ungewöhnlichen, äußerst sehenswerten Videoclip vor.
Gitarrist/Sänger kommentiert Song und Platte:
“‘Levitation Hoax’ grew from a riff that was created in December 2019, when we were on tour with Cavalera Conspiracy. 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,” Davis continues. “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.”
