Chris Carlsen's Berskerker

The Berserker series was written by Robert Holdstock under the pen-name Chris Carlsen. It was noted on the covers that these books were "From the publishers of Conan", as if that was somehow any more recommendation than if I was to note that Bear Alley is "Published on the internet, like the Pottermore website".

The Berserker series was about Norse warrior Harold Swiftaxe, a violent occult fantasy that has more in common with 2000AD's Slaine than Conan.
