Although this is a Jason ‘Bong-Ra’ Kohnen side project, there’s none of his usual mind-blowing breakcore to be heard here. It’s ‘dark jazz’ instead – inspired by and meant as a soundtrack for films like Metropolis and Nosferatu.
There’s a lot of beautiful atmospheric moments to be found: highlights are tracks like The Nothing Changes, Solomon’s Curse, Amyghdala, Guernican Perspective. These are, as you may have guessed, the more quiet tracks. At other times the music is nicely running off the rails for your more experimental experiences…

  1. I do remember being brutally awakened out of my deep coma-like katatonic state by typical Bong-Ra outburst in song 4 or 5! Exactly what I needed at the time:-) But it sure is a nice gem! Although this album was already fabricated way back in 2003, it has just seen the light of day recently. I heard they are going to play live gigs as well: first one will take place at the infamous 5-days off Fest in Amsterdam.
