Chimaira’s Mark Hunter Releases His Cover Of “Anvil Of Crom” From ‘Conan The Barbarian’


Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter has shared his cover of Basil Poledouris‘ “Anvil Of Crom” from the score for the 1982 Arnold SchwarzeneggerConan‘ film, ‘Conan The Barbarian‘. Hunter commented of his rendition:

“Like so many of you, I’ve been couped up in the house for months. To keep my sanity in check, I decided to try and tackle one of my favorite songs – ‘Anvil of Crom‘, which is the theme from 1982’s ‘Conan the Barbarian‘. Initially composed by Basil Poledouris and performed by a 94 piece orchestra – I had no idea what I was getting into or how overwhelming of a project it would be.

But alas, Crom granted me revenge, and I was able to pull it together. Please enjoy my rendition.
