(New York, NY) - Known for supporting legendary bands KISS and Def Leppard on KISS' massive 40 Anniversary North American tour last summer, Canada's explosive hard rockers Kobra And The Lotus will soon release a brand new EP. Due out August 28th, the WORDS OF THE PROPHETS EP (Titan Music) was produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Megadeth, Disturbed, Three Doors Down) and will feature cover songs by great Canadian artists. Of the new release, frontwoman Kobra Paige commented, ""Kobra and the Lotus is a riff-loving, vocal whaling, storm bringing band. We couldn't do what we do without paying homage to the true roots that were layed down before us. Words of the Prophets is a tribute to those great Canadian classic rock influences that have set the foundation for music magic since we first heard these songs playing on the radio as little kids. They carry a ton of nostalgia, inspire ambitious journeys, and we hope to rub some of that off on you!" Click here to check out the cover art and see below for the full track listing.
Kobra and The Lotus' most recent album, HIGH PRIESTESS (Titan Music), was also produced by Johnny K and delivers a blend of fiery vocals (courtesy of lead singer Kobra Paige), heavy riff-laden melodies and ferocious musicianship. Of the album, Decibel Magazine.com declared it "a stunning slab of beating, bleeding traditional metal heart and unadulterated bombast refracted and heightened through a dynamic prism of those very things that are actually right with modern metal."
