BONG reveal brand new album
1st April 2015
Pied Pipers of mesmeric drone, BONG reveal details of a brand new album, “We are, we were and we will have been”, upcoming on Ritual Productions this May.
Its two near twenty minute tracks will surely loop and envelop indefinitely, freeing the listener from this increasingly unfamiliar material world and mercifully trapping them in the weightlessness of Bong’s sonic void.
Microtonal adjustments and invading frequencies are pleated into a tapestry of gooey guitar and midnight-ritual percussion, melting at a glacial pace across ‘Time Regained’ and ‘Find Your Own Gods’. The first of the two tracks creaks under the weight of residual distortion and unfathomable density, while the second opens with the powerful command of the track title, evoking a deity-defying thought process that unravels through the duration of the song, providing the synth-mist and distant rumbles with an origin so ancient it predates comprehension.
Check out the lovely artwork from ‘Thomson’s Aeolian Harp’, by famed pre-impressionist painter JMW Turner.
