Kobra & The Lotus
Kobra & The Lotus
WITH METAL now divided into countless sub-genres, it's refreshing to find an act who require no prefix before the music that they play.

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS are the act in question, and the music they play is metal.

Not 'this' metal, or 'that' metal… just metal. Pure an' simple.

This is music played without compromise or apology – fuelled by the finest traditions of the genre, by the great names who have gone before, but with a keen eye on the future and the raw edge of youth to keep the pot boiling over.

HAILING FROM Canada and fronted by powerhouse vocalist KOBRA PAIGE, also the band's founding force, the defining factor here is a commitment to engage, entertain & excite, spear-headed by a live show that is crying out to be heard through larger amps in bigger venues…

"Kobra And The Lotus are the fire-breathing, female-fronted heavy metal bombshell. Classic, Priest-loving riffs. Powerhouse drummer. Singer who can belt the Halfordian high-notes ... these Canadian head-bangers can't return soon enough for us" – Classic Rock Magazine

OF COURSE, capturing the adrenaline-rush of a live show on record is never a straight-ahead task, but with Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy) acting as producer, along with Julius 'Juice' Butty, the band's debut album has been put to tape with as much energy & emotion as five musicians can muster in a secured environment, with no unnecessary gimmicks or off-point ideas to weaken the signal.

Scheduled for release in August 2012, with video track 'Welcome To My Funeral' already out there making its mark, it's clear that this band is now honed to a fine and dangerous point….

"Touring had a huge influence on us in terms of realizing which direction we wanted the new songs to go in," says Kobra. "We really wanted to take the live show and capture the spirit of that as best we could. It's all about the power and the glory, after all!"

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS. A new name, a new band, but one built to last… and to stimulate all of the senses along the way.
September Mourning
September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as David Bowie, Motionless in White, KISS, Paramore and My Chemical Romance.

"For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece," September explains. "Music is a piece of the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the whole. Music taps into your innermost being. There's something very intimate and personal about it."

The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus toys with Fate. To expound on this narrative, September is working with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who started out on the original X-Men comics and went on to form both Image and Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). Together, they are putting together the story of September Mourning in graphic novel form, to accompany, and enhance the storyline and musical message.

September Mourning carries positive passions into its music, which is often operatic, but also completely rock 'n' roll in all its majestic glory.

Having toured with Marilyn Manson, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her "Children of Fate," constantly encouraging them to have "the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow."
