"The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the new free-form, drone metal / jazz atler-ego of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble the band formed by Jason Kohnen (aka Bong-Ra) and Giedon Kiers. A recording of the ensemble's best live session, ‘Doomjazz Future Corpses!’ focuses on mesmerizing, doom-ridden drones and melodies, combined with the jazzy grooves and melodies of the cello and saxophones. An highly suffocating journey through the deep realms of murky drone jazz / metal, heavy and unfettered. The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the new alter ego of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, the self-acclaimed ìmutant jazzî band formed in 2000 by Jason Kohnen (aka Bong-Ra) and Giedon Kiers, and which later evolved into a six-member piece. Starting with free-form soundtracks to silent films such as Murnau's ìNosferatuî and Lang's ìMetropolisî, the band gave birth in 2006 to its first eponymous album, released on Planet Mu. The downbeat ambient jazz of their first CD was however only one avatar of this coterie, as demonstrated by the birth of The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation. The semi-improvised, dark, heavy, ìsludgyî counterpart to the ìensembleî, the Corporation leaves all borders behind, focusing this time on mesmerizing, doom-ridden drones and melodies, combined with the jazzy grooves and melodies of the cello and saxophones. Recording live in Amsterdam in February 2007, ‘Doomjazz Future Corpses!’ is a self-described ìsoundscape of barren wastelands, droning into memories of future's pastî. If the ìensembleî's debut was paying homage to The Quay Brothers, this album awakens the third, twisted, twin. A snapshot of the band's free-form sessions, in which there is no solid structure or time frame but a focus on cataclysmic improvisation and feeling, this album stands as a captivating dirge of raw guitar drones, saxophone and trombones emancipated from their classic jazz boundaries and abysmal bass throbs. An highly disorientating yet convincing journey through the deep realms of murky drone jazz / metal, heavy, suffocating and unfettered."
