    ARTISTdirect.com sat down with some of the actors from Conan the Barbarian 3D as well as composer Tyler Bates and talked to them about music and what's on their iPods.

    Jason Momoa listens to Pantera -- what a shock! He is playing the beefy and buff warrior, so it's fitting that aggressive music factors into his playlist. He also revealed that he listens to old Metallica, too. Given the fact that he's playing a warrior like Conan, it's no surprise that he has some metal flowing through his veins, right? We think he has great taste.

    We also spoke talk to composer Tyler Bates about the film's score. He said that he wanted to create an iconic theme that he could use throughout the film and apply it in different voices and in different scenarios throughout the film.

    Bates also wanted his score to resonate honestly and not be cheeky or glib, or "sword and sandals style." He wanted it to be relatable to the audience, which is a noble goal to have.

    Ron Perlman also partakes in the interview fun!
