BLACK COBRA picture
Black Cobra is a doom metal and sludge band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 2001 by Jason Landrian and Rafael Martinez (who is also the current bassist for Acid King). _______________________________

After logging several years of experience with sludge metal icons Cavity and doom prognosticators Acid King, among other bands, New York-based vocalist and guitarist Jason Landrian and L.A.-based drummer Rafael Martinez began working in 2001 on a new project that would ultimately become known as Black Cobra. An eponymous EP eventually saw the light of day in 2004, followed by the full-length Bestial in 2006 and mini-album Feather and Stone in 2007, by which time the duo had developed into a vicious, super-distorted heavy metal machine reminiscent of Mastodon and High on Fire.

BLACK COBRA Invernal

Album · 2011 · Sludge/Post-metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Avalanche...

Genre: sludge metal / thrash metal

Black Cobra's music falls under the rubric of sludge metal, and the aptly titled Infernal is their fourth full-length release.

While sludge metal is prototypically slow, heavy and lumbering and rich in blues-based southern rock elements as well as influences from 70s heavy rock and dark psychedelia, Black Cobra's Infernal has been injected with a considerable dose of aggression, as Black cobra combine the crushingly heavy sound of sludge metal, attributed to downtuned and heavily distorted bass and guitars, with the tempos of thrash metal, and even some of the brutal riffing of early and primitive death metal.

And this combination works quite well. The sludgy sound and uptempo aggressive beats and riffage amount to a very intense and chaotic sound which suits the tunes on the album extremely well. There are, of course, the obligatory heavy passages every now and then, but this album is by far dominated by brutal aggression.

If you like both sludge metal and thrash metal, you should love this release, which, dirty, aggressive and sludgy as it is, should also appeal to fans of the likes of Down, Superjoint Ritual, Dead in the Dirt, and Elitist.
