Know O’ Viewer,
that between years when MTV drank Radio and epic ballad rock,
and the years of no talent produced studio pop,
there was an age undreamed of…..

The Age of CONAN, Man-O-War!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, I could not help myself.

But WOW!
This is EPIC!!!!
As an avid reader of Robert E. Howard, the music used for this edit absolutely captured the spirit and power of his works!
Sword and Socercy never sounded so good.
Incredible. I had never heard of MAN O WAR before, but they are now on my must buy list.
The music fit each scene perfectly and completely heightened the viewing experience for me.
I loved the additional elements created for the Viking funeral, it was perfect.

A great entertaining experience and a masterful edit in all areas.
I give this epic edit an overall score of 9/10.

Oh yes, very nice. Knowing Manowar I knew that this would work just great. So many great moments here. And the imagery of the movie is so strong, really carrying the story along even without all that dialouge. Great great edit. I didn’t care for the viking funeral, but hey.

out of all the classic arnold films for some reason conan is a film i haven't re-watched to often, the last time i saw it was around 5 years ago and i felt it was a little ponderous at best. this version quickens the pace moving the film along while never feeling as if anything major had been removed that spoils the narrative.

the new soundtrack works really well in telling the story without any dialogue at the start of the film. having not read too much info regarding the edit i thought maybe the hole film would be like this. luckily there is dialogue that breaks the music throughout the edit.

i guess to really enjoy the edit you have to be a fan of the music and to be honest it's not my cup of tea. i also feel that the edit could have included sound effects during these music parts. for me the muted sound with the music playing over would have benefited with some sound effects because when the song finishes we then return to the conan film in which there isn't any music so we hear all the background noises (if that makes sense)

overall i enjoyed conan a lot more this time time around but it still isn't an arnie film that i see myself returning to soon.

F’ing brilliant… you took one of my top favorite films and made it even more awesome. Being a huge fan of Basil Poledouris because of the soundtrack to this film I was a little anxious about this edit, but also being a fan of Manowar I couldn’t resist watching this the first minute it was downloaded. I must say you did impress and it met all expectations. Very well done! 10/10 rating
