Kongh’s music, like their name and reference to the classic 1933 movie, is epic. There are many different sounds and influences from Mastodon, Opeth, Enslaved, to Neurosis. It never gets boring and the music gets down right beautiful at times. There are heavy, soft, and technical parts. Even with all of these influences, it sounds fresh. From beauty to ugliness and everything in between, Kongh keep it interesting and honest. They are cohesive and talented; let’s hope we can hear some more good things from them in the future.

Kongh plays well thought doomsludge played by people who know how metal-music should sound. Crunchy guitars, heart-tearing vocals and sludge played like it's a crawling dying man begging for help. It's cool when people beg! It's even cooler when they're begging for their life. Bands like this shouldn't make music at all when you don't have the feeling that it hurts. But this definitely hurts.
