Nevermind the fact that there are already several bands out there called Kong. I’m sure these guys from the UK don’t give a fuck about it either. Even though they are from Manchester, Kong doesn’t sound like anything that city normally has to offer us musically. No, this particular version of Kong is here to make a lot of noise, so much in fact it would make even The Melvins proud. Taking cues from Shellac and Fugazi only makes things even more unpredictable and I find myself being sucked into their maelstrom of noise with every passing song. It ain’t pretty, it’s loud and it sure as hell is obnoxious. So if you like your mother-in-law, chances are you’ll dig “Snake Magnet” as well.
Score: 7 out of 10
