I got the chance to photograph Canada's own metal band Kobra and the Lotus. Kobra and the Lotus formed in 2009 by lead vocals Kobra Paige. The band has grown in the past few years and also got signed to Napalm Records. There band has gone through a few changes in the lineup over the years but Kobra Paige has remained the main stay and the beating heart of the band. The bands sound is just as kiss ass as a metal fan would imagine. Kobra's vocals are melodic with a vocal range that keeps in momentum with the hard hitting guitar riffs. She brings and enthusiasm to the stage which for me is always nice to see. Watching an artists enjoy there creation in front of a crowd makes the show and experience more enjoyable. The band does not falter with energy when on stage. Each band member using their instrument of metal to create a fluid and dynamic connection with the crowd. So basically, the band is fucking really good! They are currently on tour to support there new release off of Napalm records.
