Marcel H. : There they are, once again, the barbaric Conan. Nowadays an established name within the sludge/stoner/doom world. ‘Existential Void Guardian’ is album number four. The first thing that catches the ear is that there is a new drummer, namely Johnny King (better known for his work in Dread Sovereign, Malthusian and previously Altar Of Plagues). This new blood has done the band well. The drumming is more varied than before and that benefits the music as a whole. Nowadays it swings more. This difference, notwithstanding, it is all still clearly Conan. So, crass pummelling sludge stoner which will, once again, appeal to loads of people. Conan like we want to hear Conan, but than with more varied drumming.
