Kong's second album Phlegm was released in 1992 and contains the band's best-known song Stockhouse. The band released the follow-up to Phlegm, Push Comes To Shove, in 1995. Shortly after the release, founding members Sprenger and Smits left the band and were replaced by guitarist Marieke Verdonk and drummer Rob Snijders. With this lineup, Kong recorded the album Earmined; their first album to be released by Roadrunner Records. In 2009 the album What It Seems Is What You Get was released by the band's own label Kongenial. Both the album and the subsequent performances were well received by fans and critics, prompting the band to start working on more music. This resulted in the album Merchants Of Air, released in 2012. Hopman left Kong in 2013 and was succeeded by Oscar Alblas. On September 19, 2014, Kong released the third album since their revival, entitled Stern.
Overall, Kong creates a lukewarm music experience with 'What It Seems Is What You Get', and true to the albums title, there's not much to dig into here past the surface.
Factorum Inconstantum. Technogod - Pain Trtnment.
KONG is back! Years after perplexing the world with their groove and sample-laden instrumental stew, the world's only "quadrophonic" band (the four musicians each play in one corner of a room, with the audience in the middle) has been resurrected and, despite a mostly new lineup, has picked up where they left off. On the radar of more open-minded metalheads for their stint on the Peaceville label, which resulted in the cult classic "Phlegm" record, this Amsterdam quartet remains a quizzical unknown to all but the most faithful
KONG started out in 1988 and soon drew international attention with their unscrupulous mix of heavy metal, progressive rock, electronica, and the avant-garde - all of it backed up by extensive sampling and quirky sound effects. Adding to their unusual approach, KONG’s music is 99 percent instrumental, and performed quadraphonically, with each member of the group positioned on a small stage in a corner of the venue and the audience in the middle.
band style album video musician event forum user. Metal Storm Metal Storm. 02:55 - Marcus He even deleted his bandcamp so it's way harder to get Arizmenda merch too. 23:54 - DeliciousDishes I mean I guess there was a 3 year gap before Stillbirth as well, and he released 2 albums in 2016, but it would be cool to hear new stuff. 23:16 - Apothecary Yeah Arizmenda's been oddly quiet since 2016 or so. The guy had a pretty steady output of like one or two full lengths per year before that. Wonder what's up. 22:31 - Marcel Hubregtse yeah it is a really good track. 21:48 - DeliciousDishes a really good 14 minute track though
