Kobra And The Lotus  


Kobra And The Lotus has turned some heads with the release of their self-titled album, and their story is not entirely unfamiliar, this being a case where a Famous Musician hears a band and signs them to his new label -- here, that musician is Gene Simmons. Kobra And The Lotus is actually the band's second album, following the lesser-known Out Of The Pit (curiously not even acknowledged on the band's own website), and the style is unabashedly straightforward traditional metal, borrowing heavily from recent American acts along with a healthy Iron Maiden influence in the twin lead guitar department. Metal bands with a female vocalist invariably seem to want to push their singer front and center image-wise (and it's even more obvious here, with Kobra being the vocalist's nickname) -- a marketing ploy? Maybe. Playing to their strengths? Possibly -- while the rest of the band are no slouches, Kobra carries herself well, with a strong midrange voice mixing the right amount of power and melody that this style demands. Could be an up-and-comer in the classic metal field.
