ONGO " Malice In Ongolanda "
( Ongo Records ) 2009.



Out of Puertorician Minor Outlying Islands comes a band ONGO. They were formed in 1999
year, and till now with actuelle one, they have released a 3 albums - " Aqui No Pasa Nada" ( 2001 ), " Negra " ( 2004 ) and "Malice in Ongolanda " ( 2009 ). Ongo members (they work as a quartet ) performs music with lotta' improvizations, many turnarounds, breaks, rhythm changes. Often atmosphere transformations also characterize its opus, and band also sung own materials part in Spanish, part in English language. A songs are different among them, most of present materials posses an agressive approach and "brutal" realizations, but some posses an easiest dimension too.
I have to mention that band has cited some influences taken from PRIMUS band kitchen, and especially a method of rhythm section lines threathenings reminds on Primus works. But ONGO as a band has offered a more interesting performing spheres, judging by its evident authors creativities, and present materials deserves more listeners challenges. Ongo is certainly uncommercial act, judging by so call mainstream standards, but " Malice In Ongolanda" is surely a pretty interesting product.
