Growing up as a ruthless barbarian in a desolate and cruel world born made Conan the toughest around. He is the wet dream of every orthodox power metal fan and the unspoken desire of funderground war metal addicts. This is a list of the 10 underground metal songs that this head crusher chose for us:
10. Blood – Sodomize the Weak
Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
9. Atrocity – Hold Out (To The End)
Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That’s what’s important! Valor pleases you, Crom… so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!
8. Cirith Ungol – Master of the Pit
The riddle… of steel.
7. Iron Maiden- The Duelist
For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm.
6. Bathory – To Enter Your Mountain
He is strong! If I die, I have to go before him, and he will ask me, “What is the riddle of steel?” If I don’t know it, he will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me. That’s Crom, strong on his mountain!
5. Manowar – Pleasure Slave
They’re all sluts! He’s dead already!
4. Rhapsody – Steelgods Of The Last Apocalypse
Crom laughs at your four winds. He laughs from his mountain.
3. Kreator – Carrion
Does it always smell like this? How does the wind ever get in here?
2. Candlemass – Demons Gate
CONAN: You killed my mother! You killed my father, you killed my people! You took my father’s sword!
1. Immortal – As the Eternity Opens
