Bong Ra – Meditations
With ‘Meditations’ the almighty Bong-Ra returns with his second ritual on Tartarus Records. Further experimentations with the new sound palette of Monolith sub frequencies, jazz percussions, whailing saxophones and ritualistic chants. Bong-Ra mixes Doom Metal, Free-Jazz and Electronics into a completely new unique crossover, with this releasebeing heavily inspired by the teachings of the Stoics. The album ‘Meditations’ is a hommage to Marcus Aurelius’ masterpiece bearing the same name.
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 between 1998 and 2018. 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 recently revived Dutch Doom Metal band Celestial Season and Atmospheric Doom outfit The Answer Lies In The Black Void with Martina Horvath (Thy Catalfaque), he transformed Bong-Ra (v2.0) into a sub based Doom machine using the bass as the key ingredient supported by free-jazz flavoured drums and saxophone.
