Bong’s 2009 self-titled album was originally released on vinyl, limited to 500 copies and with just two edited album tracks, Wizards Of Krull and The Starlit Grotto. Ritual Productions have re-released the album for the first time ever on CD and digitally, featuring the full versions of these tracks and one unreleased bonus track entitled Asleep.
This revitalised collection will remind people of Bong’s beginnings, when their early meditative hymns were committed to wax. The bonus track is a rare treat too, witness Bong at their darkest, most mournful and most psychedelic.
Overall, a great collectible and an interesting comparison to their new material. These jams still sound so utterly entrancing.
