Major Kong Album Review

Doom for the Black Sun Cover Art

Major Kong is an instrumental Sludge/Stoner/Doom Metal Band from Lublin, Poland

The members are:

Domel - bass
Misiek - guitar
Bolek - drums 

Major Kong play a great blend of Instrumental Rock blended with Sludge, Stoner and Doom Metal with added superb noise effects as well.

These hugely talented rockers have been on this blog before with their excellent debut release. Well the guys are back with their proper full length debut album – Doom For The Black Sun. An amazing 6 song hard hitting 46 minute odyssey that you will be coming back for more.

Taking influence from Church Of Misery, Sleep, KYUSS and many other great bands. Major Kong have a great style of their own adding cool psychedelic riffs as well.

This release has been a long time coming but is definitely been worth the wait. I promised the guys a review and its an album I haven’t stopped listening to for the last couple of weeks or so. Even if it was on BandCamp Page. But I relented I bought this masterpiece at the weekend. Its been on constant repeat.

This is a work of genius at times. The riffs are loud, heavy and crushing all at the same time. The album has it fair share of epic tracks. Two of them are on past the 9 minute mark. And these are the best two tracks on this brilliant album.

“Primordial Gas Clouds” and “IDDQD” both show what this band does best. Playing heavy hypnotic riffs laced with a great psych undertone to their music which draws the listener in right away.

This is probably the best Instrumental Psych Doom/Sludge/Stoner release I have heard since L’Ira Del Baccono’s 2008 brilliant live album.

In fact I would say this is the better release. It has more riffs you can shake a stick at. Plus it has some of the best drumming I have heard this year.

The album is brilliantly produced and will have you coming back time and time again. Major Kong have proved on this great release they are ready to be major players on the international Sludge/Doom/Stoner Metal scene.

Amazing album for a truly great band. So headover to BandCamp and buy this masterpiece now. Awesome Stuff.

Highly Recommended!!!
