A band of brothers and a pantheon of five, COBRA THE IMPALER is headed by guitarist Tace DC (ex-Aborted, Hster, Horses on Fire) who confesses to a ravenous craving to write heavy guitar-based music combined with melodic vocals. Joining Tace is an ensemble of respected metal heroes from the Belgian and international metal scene, who all have some sort of connection to the designer-axeman. Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth, ex-Soilwork) who played together with Tace on the Aborted-classic Goremageddon, decided to lend his capable hands to this project after hearing the first demos. In the vocal department, Tace teamed up with former-Horses on Fire colleague Mike Def as well as Manuel Remmerie (Majestic Sun, Von Detta) to create the album's ear-catching vocal lines. Rounding out the line-up is the mighty James Falck (BEAR) whose synergy with the project's main songwriter is as undeniable as it is evident. Taking strong cues from the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, COBRA THE IMPALER 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, the band makes strong use of stylistic elements from groove, thrash, and classic heavy metal. Colossal Gods is an exercise in empowerment as well as a show of subtle restraint. Defiant to the end, COBRA THE IMPALER deliver a blatantly guitar-powered album full of huge riffs and equally huge choruses that instantly nestle themselves in your mind. Proving themselves as masters of melody as well as destruction, COBRA THE IMPALER hits hard while forcing an inescapable headlock, delivering salvation to those who worship, but certain punishment for those who dare to stray.For fans of : MASTODON, GOJIRA, GHOST, BARONESS.
