Travis Magazine Vs. Kobra And The Lotus

Kobra And The Lotus hit the shelves in March!

We had the pleasure to sit down with frontman, I mean – uhm, front-woman Brittany Paige of metal giants Kobra and The Lotus during the frenzy that is Canadian Music Week.

Paige, brings some drop-dead-gorgeous beauty to the usual grimey metal scene which most metal-heads are accustomed to. But, keep your hands off – the classically trained singer brings out some incredible power and force within the bands first full length entitled Out of The Pit.

The band cites many influences in their writing, including Metallica, Iron Maiden, NOFX, Judas Priest and Vince Neil. It’s metal-mania, but just like every other band it isn’t easy to make a mark on the music industry. For Kobra and The Lotus, they are different, fronted by the epic voice of Paige audiences needed to warm up to their breed of metal.

“People were really unsure what to think of our sound at first. We played hard and picked up a fan base. I want people to really just think were a kick-ass Metal band,” Paige said.

Paige said that even though they are a female fronted band, it isn’t a detriment to their over all success.

“It’s challenging,” she said.

“But its fun. It’s what lights the fire under my butt, and it’s really awesome to be different in this scene, its motivating.”

Paige herself had to do some convincing when she first joined the band. Back when she joined, the act was under a different name and were actually looking for a drummer, not a singer.

She dared them to let her audition, and also mentioned that she wasn’t expecting any sort of response from them.

They took her up on the offer, and had no idea that such a powerful voice would be the result.

As for now, Ontario metal fans are going to need to wait to here this metal power come back. They are touring extensively throughout the west coast. But, if you can’t wait, pick up their album, or get a taste over at their MySpace.

As for now, keep it MEEEEETAAAAL!
