Doom metallers sign to Austrian label's imprint Spinning Goblin

Liverpool doom trio Conan have announced that they have signed to Spinning Goblin, an imprint of the Austrian label Napalm Records.

Following the release of their recent live LP, Mount Wrath: Live At Roadburn 2012, via Burning World Records, the band will be releasing their second studio album, due later this year, via Spinning Goblin, and have given us a couple of tasters of what to expect - have a listen below, with the band's statement about the signing following:

'Beheaded':

'Gravity Chasm':

"We are very happy to associated with a label such as Napalm Records/Spinning Goblin and are looking forward to seeing how the new record comes out. We turned down two other record deals, both from labels that we could have quite justifiably agreed terms with, but for several reasons we wanted to move on with Napalm once they showed interest.

"We have enjoyed excellent relationships with every label we have worked with and it would have taken something extremely special to convince us to move away from Burning World Records, with whom we have enjoyed a particularly happy period. Thanks to JP, Jurgen and Desiree for helping us into this position and supporting us so far.

"Everything that comes our way is a huge bonus, for we give everything and expect nothing. To be considered worthy of a label such as Napalm Records is a pretty big thing for us so we'll give it our best shot."
