Anyone that saw Canadian metal band Kobra And The Lotus on their extensive 2013-14 North American touring run in support of bands like Fear Factory, Amaranthe, and of course, KISS, was undoubtedly blown away by the sheer talent and power exhibited by this young group led by singer Kobra Paige. Aside from a covers EP called ‘Words of the Prophets’ in 2015, KATL have kept a low profile since the 2014 album ‘High Priestess’. But fans will be delighted to know that the band is back, and has finally completed work on their fourth full-length album ‘Prevail I’, set for release on May 12th 2017 via Napalm Records! Check out the album cover artwork, track listing and stream a new song called ‘Gotham’, below.
Kobra Paige talks about the story behind ‘Prevail I’: “When we are born, we are innocent, pure, and unshaped. This mandala signifies a human at the beginning of it’s journey. Unscathed and beautiful, the mandala is each and every one of us. As this album unfolds, you will notice it’s more than just music. ‘Prevail I’ is a story of visceral truth and I believe, if we’re really being honest with ourselves, everyone will find their story within it. After all, the battles may differ, but we all started as the same mandala and we are more relatable than we’d like to admit. Our only wish is that you may enjoy the freaking crap out of this album and find comfort in realizing you’re not alone.”
