I’ve caught the band Kobra and The Lotus in concert twice now and have been knocked down by their powerful Metal presentation. Singer Kobra Paige is one of my newest favorites based on just how great her voice is and for her very commanding stage presence and with the news about the band’s latest video hitting my mailbox just moments ago, I knew that I had to rally more fans to their cause and share it with you. You can check out the video below and then read the official press copy that accompanied it right after. Enjoy.
The Press Release:
(New York, NY) – Hard rock and metal fans across the globe can click enjoy the powerful new video for Kobra And The Lotus’ “Soldier.” The track is taken from the explosive hard rockers’ new studio album, HIGH PRIESTESS, out today in North America via Titan Music. Produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Megadeth, Disturbed, Three Doors Down), HIGH PRIESTESS delivers a blend of fiery vocals (courtesy of lead singer Kobra Paige), heavy riff-laden melodies and ferocious musicianship. HIGH PRIESTESS was a Top 5 Most Added album in its first week at CMJ Loud Rock radio.
HIGH PRIESTESS is already receiving praise from the media with Decibel Magazine.com referring to the album as “a stunning slab of beating, bleeding traditional metal heart and unadulterated bombast refracted and heightened through a dynamic prism of those very things that are actually right with modern metal.” Metal Exiles declared, “Metal fiends, you are about to have your heads ripped off in a major way. This summer sees the release of Kobra And The Lotus’ HIGH PRIESTESS and it scorches.” Kobra And The Lotus has just hit the road as support for legendary bands KISS and Def Leppard for their massive North American tour this summer; please see below for tour dates, including several headlining dates.
Led by frontwoman, the classically-trained vocal powerhouse, Kobra Paige, Kobra And The Lotus has been making a name for themselves worldwide with extensive touring and a well-received debut album (KOBRA AND THE LOTUS) in Europe. Kobra And The Lotus has already played the main stage at such massive European festivals as the UK’s Download, Sonisphere (Spain), Hellfest (France), Gods Of Metal (Italy), Bloodstock (UK) and more. The band has also supported the likes of Judas Priest on tour. Of Kobra And The Lotus, Classic Rock Magazine avowed, “Kobra And The Lotus are a fire-breathing, female-fronted heavy metal bombshell…” Kobra And The Lotus is: Kobra Paige (vocals), Jasio Kulakowski (guitars), Jake Dreyer (guitars), Brad Kennedy (bass) and Bones Elias (guest drummer).
As previously reported, Kobra and the Lotus are currently on tour with KISS and Def Leppard and in my humble opinion are a worthy addition to the package. I love KISS in concert and Def Leppard has always been entertaining but I was usually unimpressed by the first lead off band. This will clearly not be the case this time around that’s for sure. As you might notice there are a couple of headlining dates listed below as well so don’t miss out on the chance to catch this powerful and entertaining band on the stage if you can.
