KOBRA AND THE LOTUS Interviewed In Minneapolis (Video)

BlackWindMetal.com conducted an interview with vocalist Brittany Paige and guitarist Jasio Kulakowski of Calgary, Alberta, Canada-based metallers KOBRA AND THE LOTUS on July 23 at The Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, Minnesota. You can now watch the chat below.

The self-titled album from KOBRA AND THE LOTUS was released in the U.S. on April 16 via Simmons Records/T-Boy Records/Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).

Formed in 2009 by powerhouse vocalist Brittany "Kobra" Paige, KOBRA AND THE LOTUS has been more than busy touring Canada and Europe extensively with ball-busting hard work and intensity that secured coveted slots at Hellfest, Wacken Open Air, Download and Bloodstock in 2012.

The life of Brittany Paige and KOBRA AND THE LOTUS will be chronicled for the show "Rock City", airing on Spike TV this fall. The eight-episode season will follow the grit, drama, and thrills, both on the road and off, as this emerging metal band takes to the road on its world tour.

Featuring Brittany on lead vocals, Jasio Kulakowski on guitar, Pete Dimov on bass and Griffin Kissack on drums, the band recently recruited Latin American axeman Charlie Parra del Riego.

For KOBRA AND THE LOTUS' self-titled release, producer Kevin Churko (ROB ZOMBIE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, OZZY OSBOURNE) was brought in to assist delivering precise songs heavy with emotion. The CD has an intentionally grand-scale dynamic, magnifying the glories of the genre and making its mark as "arena" rather than "garage" rock.

The band is co-signed to Gene Simmons' label, Simmons' Records. Simmons has a longstanding reputation for discovering, assisting or recognizing new artists like VAN HALEN. Many of the early artist demos he worked on or helped with have gone on to become multi-platinum records and legendary rock anthems.
