Part of 'Riders of Doom' is referenced for brass about two minutes into track 1 'Riders of Taramis', and I think that is the only appearance of the theme on the album. The theme's full choral incarnation obviously doesn't appear at all in the score. As for the 'Anvil of Crom' - Christian's probably referring to the percussion in the opening title and the 'Conan and Bombatta Battle' tracks, which is very close to, if not identical to the 'Anvil of Crom' from the first film.
