‘Damn this is good! Bong bring it, all right, quite recommended, definitely for fans of Om, SUNNO, Grails, Sylvester Anfang… and of course Bong. And bongs! Most if not all Bong releases thus far have been live, and this one is much less of a lo-fi recording than some of those, making for an essential document of Bong’s unique trance-inducing potency.’
Words of praise from our good friends at aQuarius Records in San Francisco. And they did that review on the audio from the cd alone. They didn’t even see the beautiful vinyl version that hase come in. Check the photo’s below and pick one up on black or gold vinyl and all in gatefold sleeve on our new site. Design of the sleeve courtesy of Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues.

Three years after the gig actually took place we finally managed to get the concert out on cd. Two years after the vinyl version Roadburn Records presents Year of no Light – Live at Roadburn 2008 on cd. Year of No Light Live at Roadburn cd was recorded at the famous Roadburn Festival (duh!) in 2008. For the last song the band was joined on stage by Fear Falls Burning for 20 minutes of doom/drone mayhem.
If you want it. it’s available in our Discogs Store.
Our good friends at Aquarius Records in San Franciso are one of the few shops around who review each and every one of the records that come in. These guys really care about their shop, the goods they sell and their customers. That’s why we are really thrilled to read the rave review of our Bong – Live at Roadburn CD. If you haven’t got it yet please pick it up in our Discogs store.
‘At times, “Onwards…” drifts back down into lulling stretches of spacey warbling electronic FX, and hippy-kraut hand drumming, coming across like a sinister Siloah or doomy Amon Duul. Or imagine the Master Musicians Of Bukkake making an ambient album for Miasmah, maybe.The equally epic second track, “Wizards Of Krull” previously recorded for the first side of their self-titled lp debut in 2009, continues in this vein, with more powerful percussion, though. It’s 24 minutes of ritualistically pounding drums and crashing cymbals, low drone from bass and voice both, gobs of distortion and spooky psychedelic effects, those Shahi Baaja note clusters chiming in with regularity. “Wizards…” gets slowly more and more intense as it goes, really ramping up towards the end with rhythmic urgency. Damn this is good! Bong bring it, all right, quite recommended, definitely for fans of Om, SUNNO, Grails, Sylvester Anfang… and of course Bong. And bongs! Most if not all Bong releases thus far have been live, and this one is much less of a lo-fi recording than some of those, making for an essential document of Bong’s unique trance-inducing potency.’
