Mon, 23 Jun 2014 17:09:52
Today's Take Aim opponent is a worthwhile one. It's classically trained female vocalist Kobra Paige of Kobra and the Lotus, who are releasing High Priestess this week. The band is also touring with Kiss and Def Leppard this summer, so fuck yeah you need to know more about Kobra Paige and Kobra and The Lotus.
Normally, we try and avoid deadly things that can kill us, like snakes and serpents and cobras. But that's not the case with this Kobra. We want to get closer and we don't mind if we get bitten. We're not even sure if we want the anti-venom.
That sad, get to know Kobra of Kobra and The Lotus.

If you were not doing music, you would be...
...a pediatrician with a healthy side of competitive KICKBOXING or MMA.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Anything physical or with a board...I'm all over it. Skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking, trail running, kickboxing, you name it. I have to be doing things all the time.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Two years ago, my younger sister did a tarot reading on herself and pulled the High Priestess. I instantly had a chorus in my head, made a note, and knew it had to be on the next album. Last spring, when we were preparing for the album, I pulled the idea out again and finished writing the song. It was such an interesting card because it applied to all of us. 'The High Priestess' is a metaphor for our future and the journey we have to take to get there. It's about finding purpose in our life and how there are no shortcuts around gaining knowledge other then having experiences through time to learn more.
Finish this sentence: Kobra + the Lotus is the artist that...
...brings you 100% live rock 'n' metal spirit. We're here to pick you up and take you to the moon while head banging on the way out there.
The album High Priestess is out tomorrow. [iTunes link]
