Kobra and the Lotus howl


After hearing Kobra and the Louts singer Brittany Paige sing Iron Maiden during a July 14 show at the Slice with Berserker, it makesKobra and the Lotus unloaded the metal on  the Slice, July 14. Photo by Richard Amery me wonder why more women don’t try to sing Maiden, after all it’s in the same vocal range.

 It also made me wonder what they’d sound like with a  decent sound mix.
 I couldn’t hear anything  except for Paige‘s Judas Priest meets Iron Maiden, meets  the Headpins operatic howl and the drummer who drowned out and deafened everybody else.


 I could see the two guitarists playing some pretty wild riffs and solos, but couldn’t hear them at all no matter where I was in the room, but it didn’t stop approximately 30 people there from cheering at the top of their lungs. They were tight and even tackled Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” upon which Paige did a credible job singing.
Some of the highlights were‘Cold Hearted Woman’ and  the last song ‘Battle,” which was the first time I could hear a guitar solo.

Their song called ’Chaos’ which was about chaos at the G20,  was another highlight.

Local alternative rock band  Berserker opened the show with a  strong set of  Alexisonfire meets the Foo Fighters  rock, though they have added elements of Rage Against the Machine and System of the Down.
