Kobra And The Lotus Prevail Napalm Records

Napalm Records

Few Metal bands work harder at their craft than Kobra And The Lotus. This belief in themselves and the music they create has ushered in another incredible album with prevail. Hands down their best release to date. And this is only Album one of a double album set! This band is just getting started. There is a strength that comes through the music, a strength that is born of their dedication to their art form. Truly, prevail, is a" war horse" of shredding surges of sonic metallic perfection.

 "Gotham" kicks off the album and this song alone has everything you could ever want in a metal song. Instantly your singing along with Kobra Paige and then finding yourself playing the air guitar or the air drums as this song just slams right through your mind.

"Trigger Pulse" continues the assault and presents a straight-ahead tempo barrage of hard rock. Kobra's voice is so strong on this track.

"You Don't Know": Incredible. This song is hands down one of their best. Her voice is haunting and powerful. These words she sings, you better believe she means it. The band is powerful behind her. This song represents the perfect syncopation of vocalist and musician, songwriter and human being. Sonic Perfection.

"Specimen x": Another power house. Check out the middle breakdown. This is superior songwriting. The lead break is pure progressive pyrotechnics.

"Light Me Up" One of their best ballads. Guitar work is insane. Great catchy lyrics.

"Manifest Destiny" Another rocking classic sounding hit. Incredible. Kobra is stretching her vocals between hard rock and sweet symphonic overtones. Another catchy chorus.

"Victim" Strong hard rock sound on this one. Check out the drums on this one.  I like the message she conveys in these lyrics.

"Check The Phryg": SO many bands attempt a good instrumental. You can go the shred route like an yngwie or a satriani. Or you can go the structured way like Iron Maiden or Metallica. Or you can do both, The Kobra And The Lotus way. This is superior musicianship. The guitarist is on fire.

"Hell On Earth" slams you right back into that Kobra head banging sound. Powerful song, powerful message

"Prevail" Last song is just as strong as the first song. Perfect song to close the album and the title track.

Over all this is a fantastic release. This album should solidify Kobra And The Lotus in the pantheon of classic metal bands like Judas Priest, Dio, and others.

QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Babylon A.D. is about to release a new album on Frontiers records.REVOLUTION HIGHWAY will be released on November 10th on Frontiers Records. The Band, still with original members, will be celebrating 30 years. The songs on this album are undeniable and certifiable hard rock gems. The band has never sounded better or tighter. This is pure American rock and roll. Hands down one of the best albums for 2017. Check out their new album.  10/10 wolf howls Below is an earlier interview I did with guitarist Ron Freschi.

Interview Ron Freschi Babylon A.d./ Syrym "We are discussing  recording a new album"
Back in the day when MTV actually played music videos, Babylon A.D. was one of the best hard rock bands to tear across the television screen. The songs were filled with sex and life and just a pure rock and roll sense that few bands actually capture. Their  melodic brand of style was soon eclipsed by grunge and the fickle whims of the recording industry, and the rest is history. But they n…
