Fool's Engine - From the album Stern

“In its entirety Stern is by far the best work since Kong returned. The album shows a robust and determined band that is ready to take over stages in the Netherlands and far beyond."
MetalArchives.com (oct. 2014)

“Stern is an excellent release from Kong. It's more experimental in tone than most of their work, and has a wider range of mood."
Progarchives.com (oct. 2014)

 

“Step on in catch a wave and surf the musical narrative in the clip attached, you’ll be glad you did; it’s a wild ride mama!"

Kong are extremely good at delivering music that is restless and unsettling. For a good dose of restless music, Kong should be your choice."

Metalstorm.net (sep. 2014)

 

"The word 'Stern' has a number of meanings but in this case it means 'headstrong, tenacious and persevering'. Kong is just that, they hold on to their typical progressive and industrial sound while incorporating new elements in their music."
