Black Cobra Imperium Simulacra on 45RPM 2LP
Listening to Imperium Simulacra is like watching an experienced chef at work. His shimmering knives are honed to perfection. First a chunk of flesh is hacked with precision into just the right size. With a sharp blade all the excess fat and gristle are trimmed away in quick strokes until only the lean meat remains. The bloody piece is fried in a hot pan to keep it juicy. Each morsel will be succulent and tasty. The frying guitars, burning rhythms and rugged vocals on each of the nine new songs by Black Cobra are about as delicious.
The band was formed in 2001 by guitarist and vocalist Jason Landrian (Cavity), who was joined by Rafael Martinez (Acid King, -16, Gammera). The duo exploded from the underground with their scathing take on hardcore fueled sludge metal. After the release of four well-received full lengths, Black Cobra have leveled venues first across the United States and increasingly on international stages alongside such cult acts as High On Fire, Weedeater, Pelican, The Sword, YOB, Sleep, Torche, Kyuss Lives and many more.
Now Black Cobra are more than ready to take several big steps up the ladder of success and take the world by storm with Imperium Simulacra. Crank up the volume, bang your head, and let this album shred!
