BLACK COBRA are touring in support of their latest album, Imperium Simulacra. The record, which has been hailed as “the richest Black Cobra outing to-date” says The Obelisk, and “music meant to soundtrack armies conquering demon hordes atop roiling volcano peaks” says Decibel Magazine and is streaming here.
BLACK COBRA previously released a new video for the track “Eye Among the Blind”. The video, directed by Zev Deans (BEHEMOTH, PORTAL, and more) can be seen HERE.
BLACK COBRA was formed in 2001 by guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian (ex-CAVITY) and Rafael Martinez (ex-ACID KING, -16, GAMMERA). The band exploded from the underground with their scathing take on hardcore-fueled sludge metal. After the release of 4 well-received full lengths, BLACK COBRA have leveled venues across the country and internationally alongside HIGH ON FIRE, MASTODON, WEEDEATER, PELICAN, THE SWORD, YOB, SLEEP, MORBID ANGEL, and more.
