Singled Out: Conan's Foehammer

Today Jon Davis of Conan tells us about the song "Foehammer" from their brand new album "Blood Eagle," which is being released by Napalm Records this week. Here is the story:

This track is all about Gandalf's sword 'Glamdring' or 'Foehammer'. The idea for the riff came after listening to Faith No More on the tour bus and I had this idea if an intro riff that kinda sounded a bit like the intro to 'Epic' by Them. When we played it live it didn't really work as a bouncy riff so we changed it to this straight forward blast and then into the main riff for the track. The break after the vocal parts was just a head down charging riff that I had on my mind and uses the same chairs as the main part of Satsumo.

The lyrics are all about the mental imagery I get when I'm watching sci fi - 'arisen Elven lords' came to me watching The Two Towers. The rest of the lyrics came to me as I was watching Conquest by Lucio Fulci.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
