COBRA THE IMPALER was founded by Tace DC (ex-Aborted, Hæster, Horses on Fire) in Gent – Belgium. Taking strong cues from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, the band forges together larger-than-life grooves and spirited guitar leads with enchanting clean vocal harmonies and razor-sharp screams. Effortlessly flowing from breakneck riffs to tasteful melodic breaks, COBRA THE IMPALER makes strong use of stylistic elements from groove, thrash, and classic heavy metal.
Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth, ex-Soilwork) who played together with Tace on the Aborted-classic ‘Goremageddon’ album, delivers a stunning performance on COBRA THE IMPALER ’s forthcoming debut album .
COBRA THE IMPALER are releasing their first digital single ‘Blood Eye’ on 3/12/2021. ‘Blood Eye’ is taken from their debut full length album ‘Colossal Gods’ due to be released on 25/02/2022 on Listenable.
The band comments : “Being the second track on the record, we wanted ‘Blood Eye’ to hit with huge amounts of ferocity, catching the listener off guard. This is a song about defiance and standing up to your demons. Lines like “I’ll wield the hammer, ‘I’ll face you tyrant” & “I’m holding the line, ‘it keeps us alive” illustrate the struggle against an oppressor, either physical or ethereal. Just exactly who or what that oppressor is, remains open to interpretation.”
