Conan - Horseback Battle Hammer


Artwork by Anthony Roberts.

Conan's Horseback Battle Hammer has been described as Caveman Battle Doom and it has been called brown metal, because it rumbles so low you could shit your pants from the vibrations. This Doommantia review has yet another apt description:
Imagine waking up and rolling out of your cave roughly somewhere in the Pliocene on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning, the taste of meaty trilobites still on the back of your tongue. Checking up on the water supply of your herd of mammoths, you continue to the tundra wastelands to do some hunting - and Conan's Horseback Battle Hammer would be the soundtrack to your doings.
Here's a review from The Obelisk and an interview with the band from Doomsmoker.

I found the large version of the album artwork in this Cvlt Nation gallery.
