About Cobra Khan from Auckland





COBRA
KHAN
is back and proud to announce the release of
new album ADVERSITIES’.  Some may
say little has been heard from this Auckland five piece since the acclaimed
2008 effort ‘Helgorithms’ but hidden
away in home studios, bedrooms and the practice room alike, COBRA KHAN are now ready to deliver.



Tracked under the watchful eye of bassist
Evan Short and produced by both Evan and Milon Williams (vocals/guitar) it will
quickly become obvious that ADVERSITIES is a monstrous and most
welcome injection into the local heavy music scene, with enough riffs, evil
vocals and huge drums to blow the doors off a resprayed Holden Ute at ten
paces.



New track for public perusal ‘Borderlands’ is a gigantic, mutant, postcard
from the toxic wasteland it features {{{{{ meanage  }}}}}, epic head-nods, extra vocal input from
Craig Radford of STICKY FILTH and
enough grunt to splinter a kauri tree.



Summed up
by a friend on first listenof ADVERSITIES.



 



COBRA KHAN hasn’t lost any of the rapid tempo and
menace they are known for - in fact, they've moved up a couple of gears.
The new tunes all kick off with
double-barrelled gunshot drumming, keyboard wreckage and sublime twin guitars
entwining each other in a brute strength death match, giving ground only to
make way for large vocal refrains. The album sits together cohesively, giving
the listener a dark and mean thrill ride for the full 46 minutes, moving
through more complex moods than a Colin McCahon exhibition. 'Strider' is a ferocious
two minutes flat, no bullshit and no goodbyes. 'Hound' would bust down your
door and nick off with your family jewels before your very eyes if you let it,
while 'White Fire' ebbs and swirls with the outgoing tide at the end of a long
day - but mind the combined undertow of the vocal/drum combo, it makes for a
killer sundowner.
