30 Seconds to Mars released a lyric video for this powerful, pounding track on VEVO on May 2, 2013. "We are very excited to release 'Conquistador' to the world and show the flip side of the coin to 'Up In The Air'," said frontman Jared Leto. "It is the dark wild child of Love Lust Faith + Dreams. Unbridled, and full of anarchistic madness, this song is crushed full of passion and energy."
Conquistadors were adventurers who created a Spanish empire in Central and South America in the 16th century. The word is derived from 'conquistar', Spanish for 'conquer.' Here are a couple of songs about the vanquishers of the Aztec and Inca empires: "Conquistador" by Procol Harum. Cortez The Killer by Neil Young.
