From a village in the forests of Småland, Sweden, progressive doom metallers Kongh carry the genre to new, intense heights. Expressing torment and triumph alike, Kongh s music journeys through a vast sonic range, driven by an unstoppable momentum.
Kongh s second album, Shadows of the Shapeless, was recorded and mixed in Sweden by Peter Lundin at Teknikkompaniet (Trey Anastasio, The Sounds) and mastered by Peter In de Betou (Entombed, Meshuggah).
Shadows of the Shapeless was originally released on CD in Europe by Trust No One Recordings (Isis, Khanate, Cult Of Luna) in 2009.
Shadows of the Shapeless, as well as Kongh s debut album, Counting Heartbeats, earned massive critical acclaim in Europe via mags such as Metal Hammer and Rock Sound. Counting Heartbeats was nominated for 'Best Rock/Metal Album of 2007' (up against Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility, and Marduk) by P3 Rock, Sweden s premier rock radio show.
Kongh names directors such as Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, and Lucio Fulci amongst its biggest influences; Kongh s sound owes as much to these films as to the music of Black Sabbath, Melvins, and YOB.
Since 2006, Kongh has played across Europe with the likes of Neurosis, Cult Of Luna, Minsk, A Storm Of Light, and Switchblade.
In 2008, Kongh headlined the Kuma s Doom Fest, a two-day festival in Chicago hosted by the most renowned metal bar and grill in the USA, Kuma s Corner.
