KOBRA AND THE LOTUS Vocalist Kobra Paige - "It Has Taken So Much Work To Get Here; I Have Endless Gratitude For Everything That Has Happened"
June 2, 2014, 4 years ago
Kobra Paige, vocalist for Canada's Kobra And The Lotus, is featured in a new interview with Metal Exiles discussing the band's forthcoming album, High Priestess. An excerpt is available below:
Metal Exiles: KATL have come so far so quickly, playing with some of the biggest metal bands in the world. Do you ever pause and take stock or do you just rest assure yourself this is where you belong?
Kobra: "The thing is, it may seem quick but it has taken so much work to get here. We have played hundreds of shows and have been touring continuously for the last 4 or so years to reach each milestone. I’ve been doing metal/rock alone for almost 9 years now! I find a lot of work is often overlooked for bands as most people don’t notice them until a bigger thing takes place. At the same time, each experience and opportunity is vital, each playing a role in creating a platform for the next level. Each experience never ceases to blow my mind and I have endless gratitude for everything that has happened and is happening."

Produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Megadeth, Disturbed, Three Doors Down), High Priestess delivers a blend of fiery vocals (courtesy of lead singer Kobra Paige), heavy riff-laden melodies and ferocious musicianship. Check out an album trailer below:
