Kobra Paige and her motley crew kept their word and now they deliver the second part of their opus magnum one year after the release of Prevail I. Their upcoming album Prevail II is the proverbial yang to the yin and continues right where Kobra And The Lotus left off in 2017. The idea of making a double album was introduced by Kobra‘s father, who suggested they do it because the vast majority of younger generation rock artists don’t have the drive. Kobra admits she thought he was insane and that it was a surefire way to commit career suicide. “A week later, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head because I didn’t see any reason why we couldn’t push ourselves to do it,” says Kobra. “We could at least try, and in that way make a bold statement that Kobra And The Lotus is still hanging in there.” The opener “Losing My Humanity” is an exemplary melodic feast of both guitar and vocal craftsmanship that anchors the Canadian five piece firmly in between hard rock and heavy metal with a modern touch and the occasional classic rock.
Kobra And The Lotus know perfectly well what it takes to cater to the needs of hard rock and metal fans in 2018 without losing touch with the essential roots. Sonic Perspectives‘ collaborator Eric Woody interviewed Kobra and they spoke about the new release, her musical beginnings and how Prevail II might surpass the threshold of global success reached by its predecessor Prevail I.
