“Why the Conan the Barbarian Music”: So the reason I chose the theme from the Conan the Barbarian Movie is because of the shared themes in both the world of Conan and of the Permian. Conan lives in the mythical Hyborian Age, which is supposed to be some prehistoric earth, where great kingdoms and empires ruled, but were all long forgotten by the time of modern humans. Likewise, the Permian is the same: it was a time ruled by many different ages of now long forgotten animals, but for all of their success most were wiped out, leaving only the survivors to cling to life and repopulate the world. The earth forgot about the era, the triumph and falls of those animals, the only remnants to be the fossils lodged in the stone of the earth. Plus I think the theme is great.
