Black Cobra Chronomega

Tue 8th December 2009


/incoming/blackcobra200.jpgTwo man riff-machine Black Cobra are back again with an album that you can fully expect to follow past form, fast-paced for the most part, their all-out geet and drums soundclash comes together beautifully as ever, a nice classic guitar tone and some satisfyingly clicky drum production means it sounds the business as well as meaning it too.

Songs pass by like thundering juggernauts and the frenetic pace rarely lets up, the track 'Machine' actually sounds like they used some industrial antique machinery as inspiration, such is the battering, all-encompassing noises produced by drummer Rafael Martinez (who it turns out is also the bassist for Acid King).

Sounding like a more pissed-off and certainly more paced and interesting High On Fire, you get the feeling these two crunch these riffs out for exercise, given the fact there are two of them, the amount of sheer power on display is amazing.

Another success, seriously check this out if more inane and curveball two-pieces are getting you down, they will put a smile on your face.

    • That may be a new development, like quite a recent addition.

    • Yeah, it's only ever been those two. Saw them in 2008 with The Sword and Saviours, and they are boss. Look forward to seeing them again, and may pick this up.

      Definitely agree with the HoF comparison - like a harsher version of.
