What’s the aural version of a punch delivered straight to the face? The auditory equivalent of a shock to the system? The answer is simple; one word, one syllable.
Before we start, a word of caution. Snake Magnet is certainly not for the faint hearted. Manchester based prog-rockers, Kong, don’t give a fuck about making their listeners feel good. In fact, their abrasive, raucous, atonal beats tend to leave you devoid of any feeling at all; you’re simply numbed by the sonic blow.
Their deep and dirty underground sound penetrates the skull with a suffocating blend of psychedelic, grunge and experimental metal. Between guttural moans and grinding guitar solos, Kong creates completely avant-garde and unorthodox instrumentations; unprecedented in the universe we occupy.
Kong’s alien-inspired music, will break your sanity, blow your mind and shatter your world; but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy every minute of it. But please, if you suffer from heart problems, epilepsy or are currently pregnant return this record to the shelf.
