AS220 Streaming Sessions: Dzö-nga

September 8, 2021 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Dzö-nga [zone-ga] is an atmospheric folk/black metal ptoject formed in 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts. The band draws inspiration from world mythologies in creating genre-blending epics, imbuing a Cascadian black metal sound with classical music flair. After raising eyebrows with debut album Five Treasures of Snow, songwriter Cryvas brought in vocalist Grushenka Ødegård to record the project’s second album,The Sachem’s Tales. Picked up by renowned label Avantgarde Music, Tales earned Dzö-nga an international following with its unique take on folk and atmospheric metal. In 2018, Dzö-nga expanded into a touring lineup with musicians from respected Boston-area projects including Hemlok, Blind Revision, Age of Embers, and Ice Giant.
Dzö-nga toured the New England area steadily in 2019, both headlining and in support of luminaries of the US extreme metal metal scene (Feral, Obsidian Tongue, Infera Bruo, Vale, Eneferens, Etherius, etc). Dzö-nga added a third full member in bassist Ray King, and during the summer of 2019 set to work making its third full-length album. Thunder in the Mountains was recorded on an 18th-century farm in the forest of Connecticut, then mixed by Øystein G. Brun (Borknagar) at Crosound Studio and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound. The album was released on February 14, 2020 and garnered universally enthusiastic reviews, with several magazines and websites citing it as among the year’s best black metal albums.
