Not to be confused with king cobra, thrash metal band from Jakarta, Indonesia.
The history of KING COBRA really starts at their beginning as McCarthy. Forming only a few years ago out of the momentum of their previous bands, McCarthy showcased great talent in every inch of their music. Their debut EP was written with most members still in high school and it quickly received praise in both the Ontario and Quebec music scenes. Their southern rock like style was widely accepted and generated a lot of positive attention for them. As the years went by and the band grew as musicians, a change needed to be made in order for them to reach their full potential. Their new music was unique and reflected a new life. A decision was made to retire McCarthy and its songs to pave a way for a new generation. The response was massive. With final shows reaching capacity and endless amounts of e-mails inquiring about their future, this fueled them to make sure they come back stronger than ever.
On December 6th 2009, an official release was made informing all the fans that they were back in the studio. The word travelled fast and the response was of pure excitement. That day KING COBRA was born. KING COBRA reflects a new style that takes their entire musical influence and puts it into one mind blowing sound. They have invested everything they have into KING COBRA. Time, money, blood and sweat are just some of the things that they put into this and they wouldn’t have it any other way. The members of KING COBRA have worked hard to make an impact on today’s music scene and now they are ready to take 2010 by storm. With fast riffs, catchy choruses, heavy tones and their fusion of rock with hardcore; there is now something in it for everyone. It is now time for them to start their climb to greater heights. Get ready because “something’s fucKING coming”.
