It is with great pleasure that AGONIA RECORDS welcomes doom metal band KONGH to the label’s roster.
This relatively new band, formed back in 2004, has quickly risen amongst the ranks of Swedish acts worth watching, being nominated to the P3 Guld Award (Swedish equivalent of the Grammy Awards) for their debut album. After a successful and intense tour with the critically acclaimed YOB in September and October of 2011, KONGH focused on writing their third album to date: yet untitled and expected for early 2013.
The band has issued the following statement regarding the new deal and upcoming release: “Three years have passed since our last album was released, and we’re stoked to announce that the songwriting for a whole new album is now finalized. We’ll skip the in-depth details for now since it’s nearly possible to give a sensible description of your own music, but there’s definitely some new twists and dimensions there as well as the traditional Kongh riffage. One thing we can say for sure is that we’re very enthusiastic about the songs and we cannot wait to enter the studio! It will happen at the end of the summer, with Karl Daniel Lidén (Dozer, Switchblade) in the engineering seat. Another thing we’re happy about is the new record deal with Agonia Records. We’ve been in touch with them for well over a year now, and while we’ve had a few offers from different labels, Agonia was the one which seemed to suit us best. Our expectations are high and we’re sure this will turn out great.”
