CHECK OUT THE NEW VIDEO BELOW!!! 

Kobra And The Lotus kept their word and delivered the second part of their opus magnum one year after the successful release of rock juggernaut Prevail IPrevail II is the proverbial yang to the ying and continues right where Kobra And The Lotus left off in 2017. 
Last week the band released a new music video for their new song "Velvet Roses".  In less than a week the video has over 60,000 views and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.  Video shows around the country have been adding and featuring 'Velvet Roses' heavily as well!

“Our new music vid for ’Velvet Roses’ is out and we couldn’t be more stoked! This is, across the board, one of the band’s most favorite vids we’ve ever made. High impact, pure rock adrenaline packed with our sense of humor. In a world so full of sh*t, it feels great to not take everything so seriously and let the moment run wild. I hope we inflict some serious smilage!”
— Kobra & The Lotus

In more "Velvet Roses" news, the single is currently climbing the charts, recently debuting at #38 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart!  HardDrive, the nationally syndicated show hosted by Lou Brutus, recently featured "Velvet Roses"on their Smash OR Crash feature, winning it hands down. Kobra wants to remind the fans: "Grab it, stream it, jam it, and don't forget to request 'Velvet Roses' on your local radio station."

Photographing Kobra and the Lotus

Kobra Paige - Lead Vocals for Kobra and the Lotus

Kobra Paige - Lead Vocals for Kobra and the Lotus

I got the chance to photograph Canada's own metal band Kobra and the Lotus.  Kobra and the Lotus formed in 2009 by lead vocals Kobra Paige.  The band has grown in the past few years and also got signed to Napalm Records.  There band has gone through a few changes in the lineup over the years but Kobra Paige has remained the main stay and the beating heart of the band.  The bands sound is just as kiss ass as a metal fan would imagine.  Kobra's vocals are melodic with a vocal range that keeps in momentum with the hard hitting guitar riffs.  She brings and enthusiasm to the stage which for me is always nice to see.  Watching an artists enjoy there creation in front of a crowd makes the show and experience more enjoyable.  The band does not falter with energy when on stage.  Each band member using their instrument of metal to create a fluid and dynamic connection with the crowd.   So basically, the band is fucking really good!  They are currently on tour to support there new release off of Napalm records.  You can click the links below to find out more information about the band.  Don't miss the opportunity to see this band live, you will leave wanting more.
