    Sweet Cobra

    Heavy Metal

    Christened by PunkNews as "Born Against covering Black Sabbath," Sweet Cobra is the sound of friends scuffing up their hardcore roots with classic rock grit and classic metal fury. Parallels can be drawn to Torche's rapturous hooks, High On Fire's hellbound riffing, and Young Widows' stomping rhythms, but Sweet Cobra has always rocked with its own unique voice - earnest, driving, anthemic songs that are equally pummeling and trance-inducing. A pillar of the underground for almost a decade now, Sweet Cobra was founded in Chicago in 2002 by bassist/vocalist Botchy Vasquez (The Killing Tree) and drummer Jason Gagovski (Suicide Note). Through the mid-00's, the band released acclaimed music through Seventh Rule Recordings (Akimbo, Indian) and Gagovski's own Hawthorne Street Records, and toured with the likes of Pelican, Russian Circles, Black Cobra, and Young Widows. In 2008, Sweet Cobra signed with Black Market Activities and entered Volume Studio in Spring of 2009 in Chicago with producer Sanford Parker (Pelican, Minsk) to record its third full-length: Mercy. Mercy is a masterpiece of urgent, honest aggression, channeled into unforgettable songs. It is the definition of Sweet Cobra - ripping yet atmospheric, rocking yet angry as hell. Mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them) at Godcity Studio and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, White Drugs), Mercy features guest appearances by Robert Lowe (Lichens) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), among others. Album art comes courtesy of William Test.
    Earth is the fourth studio album from Chicago's SWEET COBRA. It was co-produced and engineered by HUM's Matt Talbot and CONVERGE's Kurt Ballou, both of whom also perform on the recordings.
    The follow-up to 2010's Mercy (Black Market Activities), Earth is markedly notable in its extraordinary refinement shining through the music itself in spades. There's no rough edges, no jarring moments, no uncooked concepts. From the first note to the conclusion of the 12-song bang-ouevre, there is crystal clear purpose and cohesiveness throughout. It has the confidence and catchiness of the heavier moments of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE with the drive of THE JESUS LIZARD. It has the surge and wallop of QUICKSAND while delving into far more diverse sonic territories. The pairing of Talbot and Ballou as co-producers has truly yielded a stunning, classic heavy album for the ages.

  • RLYR

    RLYR

    Alternative Metal

    Initially formed as an improvisational guitar/drum duo of Trevor and Steven at the behest of Keith Utech for the second installment of Utech Music Festival in late 2013, the two musicians sensed an immediate connection and continued playing together with the intention of properly documenting the piece they’d performed at the festival. Within weeks it became apparent that the project was becoming a proper band and required low end augmentation, leading the duo to enlist Colin DeKuiper on bass. Renowned for their energized performances, the band has become a staple of the Chicago live music scene, providing support for This Will Destroy You, Young Widows, Coliseum, Deafheaven, The Twilight Sad, Six Organs of Admittance, and many more.
