Singled Out: Conan's Foehammer
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.
