_ Canadian Heavy Metal beauties Kobra & The Lotus are set to release their debut, self-titled album on August 6th 2012 via Spinefarm Records.
Produced by Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch & Ozzy Osbourne), this 10-track release has a grand-scale dynamic sound to it, revelling in the glories of the essence of Heavy Metal and giving precisely delivered music, heavily loaded with emotion.
Commenting on the record, songwriter Kobra spoke about its infrastructure:
“Some of the songs do have more specific meanings – for example, ‘Heaven’s Veins’ is about addiction, ‘Calm Before the Storm’ is about children born into troubled situations, ‘pearls in the ashes’, and ‘50 Shades Of Evil’ is about greed, about the constant desire for more… but, by and large, the theme is one of hope, of finding a way through dark situations… I do have broad musical tastes, but by choice I’m a heavy metal fan, and I’m truly excited with the album we’ve just finished. It’s rooted in the great history of the music, the escapism and the larger than life imagery, which is something I’m very comfortable with, but it’s for a new generation too, and it’s delivered 100 per cent from the heart!”
Kobra & The Lotus will be coming to the UK to guest with both Judas Priest and Guns N’ Roses in late May, then appearing at the Download Festival in June.
In support of this activity, ‘Forever One’ – the lead single / video from the new album – will be released digitally on May 28th. Watch the videohere.
