Major Kong - 2014 - Doom Machine

Major Kong is a three piece doom metal band from Lublin, Poland. Doom Machine is their third EP. Major Kong play a riff focused brand of doom metal that comes out adjacent to stoner metal, the guitar has a snarling fuzz that lures you in. Major Kong would go perfectly with bands like Sleep, Fu Manchu, Kyuss, Dozer, Unida, or a lot more bands on Man's Ruin in the 90's. There are no frills or niceties here, just hypnotic riffs that refuse to let up. These are 5-9 minute metal riff orgies and if that doesn't sound appealing to you then move on. But if you need a soundtrack to your next session or just like heavy riffs, Major Kong's Doom Machine will serve well.
