It’s been almost four decades since the mighty King Kobra first burst onto the melodic metal scene. Pulled together by superstar drummer and mastermind Carmine Appice (Cactus / Vanilla Fudge), King Kobra quickly became a worldwide fan favorite with a deadly mix of stellar musicianship, killer metal hooks, and of course a whole lot of teased up hair!
Now, a new line-up of the band, perhaps their strongest gathering yet, is ready to announce the release of We Are Warriors, the band’s hard-hitting 7th studio album. The founding member, Appice is joined once again by longtime bassist Johnny Rod, and vocalist Paul Shortino who welcome to the den the newest vipers, Quiet Riot guitarist Carlos Cavazo and former Dio member Rowan Robertson. With these two talented virtuosos aboard, We Are Warriors is bound to be one of the band’s most celebrated albums.
Cavazo declares that the new single “is the anthem of how our lives were in the ‘80s,” while vocalist Shortino looks forward to the release of the entire album saying “we put a lot of love into this record!” And finally, founder Appice says, “the album has some great moments in playing, singing and songwriting…it meets the standard of KK….it ROCKS!!”
