BONG
BEYOND ANCIENT SPACE
RITUAL

One definitely requires an attention span at full strength to enjoy Bong’s 79-minute, three-song endeavor entitled BEYOND ANCIENT SPACE. This prolific UK quartet supplies the listener with an intentionally murky minimalist menagerie of repetitive riffs over an undulating atmospheric clamor with a plethora of percussive strikes and intricacies successfully substituted for the diminished presence of vocals, sans a few mantra-like chants sporadically placed within this adventurously arduous excursion. Executing deliberate dollops of doom with a perennial experimental scope at the helm, Bong painstakingly documents each step towards their ethereal journey, resulting in the languishing pace and polarizing feel this musical experience garnishes.
