The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation

The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the experimental Ambient/Noise/Drone/Jazz alter ego of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, the self-acclaimed “mutant jazz” band formed in 2000 by Jason Kohnen (aka Bong-Ra) and Gideon Kiers, and which later evolved into a six-member piece. Starting with free-form soundtracks to silent films such as Murnau’s “Nosferatu” and Lang’s “Metropolis”, the band gave birth in 2006 to its first eponymous album, released on Planet Mu.

The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is the experimental Ambient/Noise/Drone/Jazz alter ego of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, the self-acclaimed “mutant jazz” band formed in 2000 by Jason Kohnen (aka Bong-Ra) and Gideon Kiers, and which later evolved into a six-member piece. Starting with free-form soundtracks to silent films such as Murnau’s “Nosferatu” and Lang’s “Metropolis”, 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, “sludgy” counterpart to the “ensemble”, 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.

Recorded live in Amsterdam in February 2007, “Doomjazz Future Corpses!” is a self-described “soundscape of barren wastelands, droning into memories of future’s past”. If the “ensemble”’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.
