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 and existentialism inspired by the musical works of John
Coltrane, the crushing weight of Doom Metal and the open forms of improvised free jazz using
these into a completely new genre in itself. Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi, known for his
collaborations with legends such as Merzbow and Keiji Haino accompanies multi-instrumentalist
Jason Kohnen in the timeless journey into unknown realms.
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.
