Kobra Paige – Kobra and the Lotus

Interview by Peach Galea

Kobra and the Lotus is a Canadian heavy metal band formed in 2009 by lead vocalist and songwriter Kobra Paige and  we have been lucky enough to catch the Priestess herself for an interview here at Femme Metal Webzine during their recent UK tour and ask about their upcoming EP “Words of the Prophet” . On top of this I’d would like to thank Kobra for taking the time out of your busy schedule for this interview. I have been a fan of Kobra and the Lotus for a few years and would like to congratulate her on the art and professionalism shown within each album to date.
 
Let’s start with a few questions about your latest video for “Black Velvet”. What lead you to make the decision to do a cover of Alannah Myles classic song “Black Velvet”?

Well, Alannah Myles has been a very big mentor. In my life actually, I played a Beatles tribute with her when I was 19 and she was very encouraging. I love her stuff, I love what she did in her heyday especially and I loved “Black Velvet”, I was a huge fan of it. When we mixed the first album she called me in the studio just to say “Hey, carry the torch well for the next generation”. I really appreciated it, I think she is underrated and I really wanted to bring her around again to the world. Continue reading »

Diamante

Interview by Miriam C.

Los Angeles based singer Diamante, despite her young age, shows the power and grit of an experienced artist. It would be strange to you but Diamante, aside of a huge PR machine, has completely self-released her new debut EP called “Dirty Blonde” so we caught up the girl herself, just back from her successful Revolver’s “Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock” tour. 
 
Hi Diamante, first of all, how are you and thank you for this special interview, we know that you are very busy promoting your new upcoming debut EP “Dirty Blonde”. How life is treating you nowadays?

Life has been rad! I just returned from tour about a week ago and I’ve been soaking in as much of Hollywood as I can before I leave. It’s been great seeing everyone and being able to rest, but I am excited to go back out on the road again. Continue reading »

Asylum Escape – Even If I’m Broken EP (2015)

Label: Crysella Records

Review by Mimi Robins

Here we’re introducing  mysterious band called Asylum Escape. Sketchy are the info avalaible about this band that has just released their debut EP “Even If I’m Broken” whose it begins with an echoing choir, which I love. It lends mystery to the rest of the album and sets a good precedent, I think. Deda Von Miseria‘s vocals seem really quiet to me, especially in the first few tracks, an interesting contrast from the instruments, which seem to take up more focus. “Even If I’m Broken” has elements of it that remind me of classic Evanescence (think “My Immortal”). The chorus is quite catchy, and stayed with me for a few days after my first listen through. I really liked the different instruments I was able to hear separately throughout the EP – it’s something I don’t usually remark right away, but here I took notice immediately. Continue reading »

End of Skyline – “EOS” EP (2015)

Independent Release

Review by Mimi Robins

I really enjoyed this EP by Italy’s modern metal band End of Skyline – I played it on repeat while packing up my room and preparing for a move, to the extent that I’ve almost got them memorized. My first impression of the songs and the vocals in particular is that they’d be the perfect to sing along to in a car.

Though I wasn’t sure what to expect, I found “Protection” to be heavier than expected – it just hit me in the face. I was grinning immediately, and replayed the first track a few times because I enjoyed it so much. It’s been stuck in my head for ages. “Reproach” is still moderately heavy, and I love the guitar lines in it. The bridge is stuck in my head and I love it. “Alone” is a little more low-key, and there’s something about it that just makes me feel very still and quiet. Continue reading »

Second Empire – “Second Empire” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

It’s good to see more and more symphonic metal coming from the U.S. lately. Pittsburgh’s Second Empire is one such band – and a good one at that. They have just issued their debut self-titled EP and after listening, I have to say that this band has a lot to offer.

The keyboard intro kicks off the opening tune “Everlasting” as the rumbling guitars join in. Lead vocalist Alex Lindsay Roth has a cool mid-range voice. This song really takes off in different directions with a strong orchestral part and a great solo. The next track, “Hold Me (‘Til We’re Both Dead)” gets started with a piano intro before the song steadily picks up the tempo. Still, this is a great mid-tempo song and one with an undeniably catchy melody and chorus. Continue reading »
