KOBRA AND THE LOTUS SELF-TITLED MAJOR LABEL DEBUT - RELEASED APRIL 16.
10 April 2013 (Toronto) – Female metal warrior Kobra Paige, along with guitarist Jasio Kulakowski, bassist Pete Dimov and drummer Griffin Kissack of Kobra And The Lotus are set to make their self-titled, major label debut on Tuesday, April 16TH via Simmons Records/T-Boy Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
KOBRA AND THE LOTUS packs a powerful 10-track punch featuring Paige’s multi-range wailing vocals, with infectious harmonies and sweeping choruses over powerful metal riffs, thundering bass and rapid fire percussion. It also contains driving anthems “50 Shades of Evil”, “Welcome To My Funeral”, “My Life” and “Forever One”. They offer more dramatic styling’s in “Aria of Karmika”, and build on tradition with “Nayana” and “No Rest For The Wicked”. The band sets the stage for a tender intimate moment with “Sanctuary” before launching into skull-crushing guitars to carry the track out.
For the process of the album’s inception, producer Kevin Churko (Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne) was brought in to assist in delivering precise songs heavy with emotion. The release has an intentionally grand-scale dynamic, magnifying the glories of the genre and making its mark as ‘arena’ rather than ‘garage’ rock.
In the fall of 2013, the life of Kobra Paige and her band will be chronicled for the show “Rock City”, which will air on Spike TV. The eight episode season will follow the grit, drama, and thrills, both on the road and off, as this emerging metal band takes to the road on their world tour.
Formed in 2009, Kobra And The Lotus have been more than busy touring Canada, the UK and Europe extensively with ball-busting hard work and intensity that secured coveted slots at Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Download and Bloodstock in 2012.
In short, heavy metal has a New Face. A New Voice. A New Name. Kobra And The Lotus.
In support of their new album, Kobra And The Lotus are headed out on an extensive North American tour with Fear Factory. The carnage starts April 14 in Colorado Springs, CO, and visits Canada for one stop, April 24, at Toronto's Opera House.www.KobraAndTheLotus.com
