Anybody around here familiar with the Dutch band KONG, by any chance? I was playing some of their 90s material earlier, which I really like, and just now found out that they're still around and actually have a new album coming up this month. Sounds rather good, I think, provided you like metal/rock with a heavy touch of electronics...

New track: http://youtu.be/k91Fhlrx5Rk
Old music video: http://youtu.be/JeRhrNI_0aQ

So... opinions, memories, ratings, rotten tomatoes, anyone?

(and by the way: delete this thread if I accidentally overlooked an older topic about this band)

Gave that new song a listen, that was actually a pretty cool sort of prog metal affair. There wasn't actually a great deal of dance music in that. The intro was a bit like Psytrance, but thats about it. Assuming thats what they sound like now, I'd certainly be interested in checking them out.

You're right, this particular song can't really be labelled "dance" indeed, but they did release some stuff in the past that was influenced more obviously by said genre - particularly the Freakcontrol album.

I believe they collaborated with Junkie XL a couple of times too, as a matter of fact.
