L.A. Cobra unveil video for single “Running Wild”
South African sleaze rockers L.A. Cobra consisting of frontman Don Cobra, guitarist Slade, drummer Callie the Animal and bassist Ewil Honey have unveiled a video for their single “Running Wild” from their album Shotgun Slinger, which was released back on October 6, 2017.
Back in February of this year, L.A. Cobra announced that they had signed with Golden Robot Records for the release of their next studio album.
“Sometimes the key to success is maximizing what you got. In the case of L.A. Cobra‘s frontman Don Cobra, no one is going to mistake him for the next Rob Halford or Bruce Dickinson in terms of his vocal abilities including his range but his singing on Shotgun Slinger fits in marvellously well. And whenever his vocals might need a bit of lift, the additional backing vocals on the various songs such as for example on the title track are there to assist him. In some ways, Cobra‘s singing reminds me of Vain frontman Davy Vain‘s vocals, which is a really good thing. Again, I don’t know if it’s the Martin Sweet influence but L.A. Cobra have made some great strides on their third studio album compared to their second album How Much Snake Can You Take?, which guitar hero solos bordered a little bit on overkill. On Shotgun Slinger, the emphasis seems to be placed on great melodies throughout rather than killer but slightly out of context guitar solos during the songs.”
