The long sold out split EP by 2 of the greatest stoner / doom bands from across the pond (well from here on the European mainland that is) is available again after being sold out for a long time on original label Head Of Crom. We are talking about Conan and Slomatics of course.
The album has been repressed on blue and red color vinyl and in a limited amount of 500. If you need your copy please go here.
Head Of Crom described the split at the time as:
A three piece of such sluggish might that even the Old Ones themselves are wary. Their debut album ‘Horseback Battle Hammer’ originally sold out on Throne in a very short space of time, confirming the magnetic draw their dense yet beautiful sound has. Conan explore a new-found psychedelic prowess here, yet still retain their trademark tone of impossibly low-end power. These three crushing tracks were recorded by Chris Fielding at Foel Studio, against the backdrop of a bleak gale and a howling storm. Additional vocals were contributed by spacelord Dave Anderson (ex-Hawkind / Amon Duul II), stepping up the psych-factor one notch further.
This Belfast-based trio of grandiose riff-runts have been rocking since 2004. Along the way they have amassed two albums, three splits and a slavish cult following. These Hibernian doomhounds are quirky and unlike anyone else, although it has been alleged that they share some genetic material with early Melvins. Beautiful and enticing perhaps, but undoubtedly heavy as hell.
James Plotkin (Khanate, Isis, Earth) was the natural and most brutal choice for mastering duties on both sides of the split and with beautiful artwork by Tony Roberts.

Here we are again with another installment in our series “New arrival”. This time we seem to focus on extreme left wing metal like Teitanblood, Deathspell Omega, Burning Witch and the lot, but that is purely coincidental. We also added some Julian Cope, Jenniferever, Electric Moon and some cheapo’s (returns with some corners bent), Hawkwind re-issues, Converge and Dropdead to please all customers. All in all it’s a nice list if we say so ourselves. Did we mention there’s some new Cathedral, Noothgrush and Voivod vinyl there as well? Click on a title to go directly to that title in our store.
