Kobra and the Lotus – “Words of the Prophets” EP (2015)

Label: Titan Music

Review by Warren Mayocchi

Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell all come from Canada. So, when Kobra and the Lotus decided to make an EP featuring classic Canadian artists, there is a broad set of very talented bands from which they can choose. They decided to select artists that they liked in their youth. All of the aforementioned Canadian legends have been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and all but one of the artists that Kobra and the Lotus cover have also been inducted.

A video has been produced for the Alannah Myles cover, “Black Velvet”, the youngest song on the album. As with all the songs on the EP, the band bring a noticeably heavier sound and Kobra Paige brings her great rock voice. All songs are performed well, Kobra and the Lotus display their musical competence and love for the original songs. Continue reading »

Oceans of Slumber – “Blue” EP (2015)

Label: Century Media Records

Review by Alysha Hayden

Oceans of Slumber are a progressive metal band based out of Houston, Texas in the US. Comprising of Cammie Gilbert on vocals, Dobber Beverly on drums, Anthony Contreras on guitar, Sean Gary also plucking those guitar strings, Keegan Kelly on bass and lastly Uaeb Yelsaeb on the synthesizers. The “Blue” EP opens with Candlesmass‘s cover “Solitude” where Cammie‘s voice absolutely gives this song the hauntingly beautiful lyrics the spine tingling emotion they needed. Instantly her voice reminded me of the talented Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine. They kicked this track up a notch and dare I say, made it better. OoS couldn’t have made a better selection for the opening of this record. Next they pay respect to metal legends, Led Zeppelin with a cover of the iconic “Kashmir” giving us a luscious taste of Cammie‘s range while they make the song their own.  Continue reading »

Xandria – “Fire & Ashes” EP (2015)

Label: Napalm Records

Review by Warren Mayocchi

Three new songs, two cover songs and two re-recorded Xandria songs. “Fire & Ashes” is the new EP from Xandria and it really surprised me! This is the second album that the band has delivered with Dianne van Giersbergen as the band’s lead vocalist. On the previous album – “Sacrificium” Dianne was definitely great, but on “Fire & Ashes” her vocals shine brilliantly. This EP contains symphonic metal at its best. The album opens with the three new songs. “Voyage of the Fallen” is backed with prominent drums and guitars. It is the lead vocal and choir that give the song an epic symphonic effect – I love the arrangement. “Unembraced” follows and it is another awesome track, still with the excellent drums and guitars, but with symphonic elements in the music.

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 »

Comments Off on 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 »
