Bong-Ra

Monolith sub-frequencies intended to lift the listener to a higher level of consciousness, a state of trance and hypnotism. Bong-Ra mixes Doom Metal, Free-Jazz and Electronics in a completely new unique crossover heavily inspired by ancient and pre-dynastic civilisations. His personal philosophy and research into transcendency, the esoteric and existentialism inspired by the musical works of John Coltrane, the teachings of Manly P Hall, the crushing weight of Doom Metal and the open forms of improvised free jazz using these into a completely new genre in itself.

As one of the pioneers of the electronic harsh subgenre’s Breakcore together with artists like Venetian Snares and DJ Scud, Bong-Ra (v1.0) lead the Breakcore scene for two decades, preaching his manic rhythms across the globe. After twenty years of carnage Jason Kohnen decided to metamorphosize his Bong-Ra alter ego and return to his original roots and passion of Doom. Founding member of the Dutch Doom/Stoner band ‘Celestial Season’ in the early 90’s, he transformed Bong-Ra (v2.0) into a sub based Doom machine.
