Episode 14: Conan vs. Heavy Metal

Hey all, here we are, back for another episode of THE CROMCAST!

Are you ready for some music? Are you ready for some metal?

If you answered "yes," then this is the episode for you!

(If not.... Then just hang loose until the next episode)

Here's the setlist and links to purchase this music on Amazon:

1. Domine - "Aquilonia Suite I," from Emperor of the Black Runes
2. The Sword - "The Frost Giant's Daughter," from Gods of the Earth
3. Manilla Road - "Queen of the Black Coast," from Metal
4. Elder - "Riddle of Steel I," from their eponymous full-length album
5. Electric Wizard - "Barbarian," from Dopethrone
6. Runic - "Last Days of Aghrapur I (Ambush)," from Liar Kings
7. Ironsword - "The Pyre of Kings," from Overlords of Chaos

And don't forget to listen to that live set from Elder at the Roadburn Festival this past year.
You can get it on a pay-what-you-will basis from Bandcamp! But seriously, throw a few bucks towards ALL of these artists... They need and deserve our support!

A special thank you to Mark Finn for the awesome Sailor Steve opener! Check out Mark's blog at:
