Revengeance is the third album by Merseyside doom metal three piece Conan. The songs are wrapped in warm, down-tuned fuzz, crust-covered doom and monumental drone. However, this fuzzy sludge does not conceal how pissed off the band remain. Pressed on limited edition transparent red vinyl which is exclusive to the UK. On Napalm Records.

Things have changed quite a bit in the Conan camp since the release of 2014's Blood Eagle. Guitarist/vocalist Jon Davis is the only member left from those sessions as drummer Rich Lewis makes his debut with the UK trio and longtime producer Chris Fielding has come on for bass and backing vocal duties. The resulting studio album stays true to Conan's bludgeoning caveman doom approach but also evaluates some different takes on tempo and vocal dynamics. Its forays into faster tempos and more prominent vocals work well with their brand of sludgy brutality and may even enhance the ideas behind their barbaric imagery. I don't see them getting as far out there as Mastodon or Baroness, but there is more to their boneheaded formula than meets the eye.
