Demo Track “Gravity Chasm” Streaming From Conan

The world’s heaviest doom metal-band Conan is streaming the 2012 demo track “Gravity Chasm” in the player below. The song appears on the upcoming release “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” coming November 17th via Napalm Records.

Says guitarist & vocalist Jon Paul Davis: “‘Gravity Chasm’ made it onto the final album and it was always a favorite tribute to Cathedral’s own ‘Ride’ which has a similar riff. I wanted to write a song like this for a while and it kind of came together one day when we were trying to play Iron Maiden in the studio.”

It roars and cranks all over, dull distortion drags nerves into the coldest regions of the world. It’s no accident that the band calls this “Caveman Battle Doom.” “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” is the primordial soup for everything that Conan stands for!

The track list for “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” is:

1. Battle In The Swamp ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
2. Satsumo ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
3. Krull ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
4. Satsumo ( Rehearsal room demo 2006 )
5. Gravity Chasm ( Studio demo 2012 )
6. Foehammer ( Studio demo 2012 )
7. Domed Iron Boss ( Studio demo 2012 )
