L.A. COBRA’s Superstition is a unique contribution to the sleaze/glam genre with massive choruses that will have you singing along to this hit-filled album. Superstition was mixed, mastered and produced by Martin Sweet of CRASHDIET.
Formed in November 2005, L.A. COBRA is the only sleaze/glam/hair metal band on the African continent. They are the “sleaze rocking hair metal stars” from Pretoria (home of multi-platinum rock superstars SEETHER), flying the 80’s glam rock flag from the handlebars of their Harley’s whilst making a name for themselves internationally and locally.
