Kobra and the Lotus - "Burn!" (Guitar Playthrough)

Το 2009 η Kobra Paige, ο Matt Van Wezel και ο Chris Swenson σχημάτισαν στον Καναδά τους Kobra and the Lotus. Δέκα χρόνια μετά η μπάντα παραμένει ενεργή αν κι από τα ιδρυτικά μέλη παραμένει μόνο η τραγουδίστρια.

Οι Kobra and the Lotus έχουν κυκλοφορήσει πέντε "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (συν ένα demo, δύο EPs και έξι singles) με τον έκτο να βρίσκεται προ των πυλών. Τιτλοφορείται "Evolution" κι αναμένεται τον πρώτο φθινοπωρινό μήνα. Το έδαφος προετοίμασε το single "Burn!"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Calgary-based hard rock quintet Kobra and the Lotus have returned with their new studio album 'Evolution', which will get a September 20th release on Napalm Records.

The upcoming LP sees the band imbued with a new fire that comes through by way of undeniable hooks, soaring guitar riffs, marching drum beats, and the soulful, bombastic vocal delivery of lead singer Kobra Paige.

No longer bound by old formulas and expectations from the past, 'Evolution' comes through with a sound that is expansive and, at times, borders on outright swagger. Each song feels like an Active Rock hit in the making, while still having the grit and feverish intensity that longtime fans have come to admire from Kobra and the Lotus.

Evolution boasts the band's most cohesive and confident material to date. For the new record, Kobra and the Lotus enlisted the services of producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette [Alter Bridge, Linkin Park, Slash, Sevendust]. The first single, “Burn!” ignites this chapter.

A hummable riff snaps into a visceral verse as the frontwoman directly declares, “I really hate you, yes I do.” The track builds towards an incendiary and infectious chorus, hinging on a seesawing guttural groove and hitting like a sledgehammer.»

Kobra Paige: «The new body of work sets the tone for the music going forward. Sonically, it’s still heavy. It highlights the showmanship and maintains the edge. At the same time, it’s approachable. It pays tribute to our influences, but it takes the next step. So, it’s a reintroduction to us and a rebirth.

A firm goal was to build a strong identity and update everything. We just want to be Kobra and the Lotus; that’s what we’re doing. We’ve never done a record like Evolution. We’ve flown demos over the internet back and forth or started a few ideas prior to hitting the studio.

This time, we were all working together in the flesh for the full duration of the writing process. It’s a collision of everything we love. We feel like it’s the freshest and most timeless thing we’ve brought to the table.»
