Battle Bards Episode #10: Age of Conan

What pleases the Battle Bards? To crush their enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their husbands. We were off to a rough start this Battle Bards episode #10, realizing that 66% of the bards don’t actually enjoy the much acclaimed Age of Conan soundtrack nearly as much as they should. Oh well, with much help from Steff we still did our best to pay homage to Conan, Hyboria and Knut Avenstroup Haugen in what proves to be our sweatiest and dampest podcast session yet!

  1. Just recently got into listening to your podcast, and I think this is one of the best soundtracks out there (obviously due to awards won).

    Awaiting your reviews of… um… I dunno. Mabinogi? Granado Espada (sword of the new world)? I’ll apologize now for all the techno rave if you go with the latter, but it does have a few nice songs. :P

    1. Hehe no worries, so have we :) we have a ton more shows and topics lined up, we intend to cover everything humanly possible eventually. and Granado Espada is on my list too – I’ve actually played it and while it’s the most bizarre mixture of music ever (the eurotrash techno is horrid), it does have beautiful classical music.
