Re-release on vinyl of the long sold out Conan / Slomatics split from 2011 on Head Of Crom. Mastering by James Plotkin (Khanate/Isis etc) - Artwork by Tony Robert who does all Conan artwork - Vocals on Obsidian Sword by Dave Anderson (Amon Duul, Hawkwind etc) Two giants lock horns on this new split release. Conan and Slomatics are a formidable force in their own right let alone allowing for the conurbation of bands on one split. The reputation of both bands many will already know. This has to be therefore, the heaviest clash of the titans split ever to be released. Another important aspect to this is the record cover itself. Covers should always be an important part of the release because they are the face by which one can sometimes judge the music contained therein. This is certainly one of my favourite covers for a very long time. Depicting a warrior astride a snail on a high range of mountaintops made me draw an immediate comparison with Hawkwind's Warrior on the Edge of Time. As a pictorial metaphor for heaviness no other image can surely surpass the message: what you are about to listen to will be magnificently HUGE.
